Deloitte Financial Advisory Services has expanded its electronic discovery management and litigation services by acquiring substantially all of the assets of IE Discovery Inc., an Austin, Texas-based provider of legal discovery services to government agencies, particularly the federal government.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Deloitte ranked in first place on Accounting Today’s 2012 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $11.9 billion in annual revenue. The firm has more than 500 professionals who provide analytic and forensic technology services in the U.S., including e-discovery and, together with the other subsidiaries of Deloitte LLP, have more than 6,600 professionals serving U.S. federal government agencies.

“We are committed to providing our clients innovative e-discovery solutions and services,” said Deloitte Financial Advisory Services CEO David Williams in a statement.  “By combining Deloitte’s strong existing e-discovery capabilities with IE Discovery’s deep experience in discovery management and litigation support, we will offer expanded solutions to our federal government clients.”

Founded in 1990, IE Discovery helps government and corporate legal teams by providing -discovery services to allow legal teams to focus on formulating and executing case strategy.  “Both Deloitte and IE Discovery have deep experience serving federal agencies,” said IE Discovery CEO Chris May.  “Deloitte’s scalability and relationships with top government agency executives, and its strong commercial e-discovery practice, will help us all to continue to grow a leading federal e-discovery practice.”
