A prior post reported on EDDix’s finding that the e-discovery vendor market would consolidate. Yesterday another acquisition occurred. 

FTI Consulting has acquired Ringtail, according to an FTI press release.

In my view, law firms need not yet worry about the reduction in number of vendors. FTI already worked with Ringtail, so this acquisition does not seem to change any market fundamentals. In any event, there are still numerous vendors from which to choose.
