Wednesday 13 June 2018

13 June 2018 - Kansas, US-based legal services provider Epiq has acquired the eDiscovery business of Japan-based SAP channel partner Soliton Systems, formerly known as Ji2, expanding its presence in the Japanese legal market, the company said.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition allows Epiq to further enhance the comprehensive suite of services it delivers to Japanese clients. Through the transaction, Epiq will acquire patented, proprietary technology that optimises Japanese character set processing.

Epiq said the acquisition of Soliton's eDiscovery business enhances its existing presence and expertise in Japan.

As a result of the transaction, eDiscovery clients of both organisations will have immediate access to the deeper and broader range of best-in-class legal technology services Epiq provides both within Japan and globally. At the same time, the divestment will allow Soliton to focus on its core business of developing cutting-edge technology that helps companies solve their live broadcasting and IT security challenges.

Epiq takes on large-scale, increasingly complex tasks for corporate counsel, law firms, and business professionals with efficiency, clarity, and confidence.
