More consolidation in e-discovery. 

“FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced the acquisition of Strategic Discovery, Inc. (“SDI”), a premier firm known for its market and thought leadership as well as its steadfast commitment to advancing rational and cost effective responses for corporate clients facing Electronically Stored Information (ESI) demands.” 12 Feb 2008 press release.

I’ve known SDI founder and president Adam Bendell for many years. He is one of the best and brightest in this field. Early in my prior Prism Legal Consulting practice, I was fortunate to be able to work closely with Adam and his team. FTI is very fortunate to have SDI’s outstanding team and I wish SDI the best in its new home.
