D4 forms alliance with Canadian eDiscovery leader to provide solutions to law firms and corporations across North America.

D4, LLC, headquartered in Rochester, NY, USA and Commonwealth Legal Inc., of Toronto, Canada have officially bridged their end-to-end eDiscovery services across the border, forming the first alliance of its kind in the eDiscovery industry.

“No other organization in this industry spans all of North America,” says John Holland, CEO of D4. “Our coverage just became the largest in the continent! For some time it’s been our goal to offer local coverage of our services throughout the U.S. Expanding our reach across Canada, in conjunction with Commonwealth Legal, seems like a natural fit and a good progression to our model of serving local markets.”

D4 offers eDiscovery and Computer Forensic services and maintains offices in New York, Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco, Omaha, Denver, Lincoln, Grand Rapids, Charlotte, Washington DC, Tampa, Buffalo and Rochester and is currently in the process of opening new offices in Boston and Albany.

“It just made sense,” says Peter Coons, Senior Vice President of D4. “There are countless companies in both Canada and the US that are forced to deal with cross-border litigation. This relationship allows both companies to provide clients with seamless cross-border eDiscovery by addressing and solving jurisdictional issues, differentiations in data hosting requirements and differences of law. The alignment also allows both companies to better serve current client bases and combine our expertise and efforts to essentially form an all-in-one eDiscovery juggernaut.”

Commonwealth Legal is the Canadian market leader for evidence management solutions, with a sole focus on eDiscovery and litigation support. With over 10 years of experience servicing both Canadian and international markets, Commonwealth Legal offers the most comprehensive range of technology solutions and has the largest and most experienced professional services team in Canada.

“With their similar culture, compatible service mix and reputable professional services team, D4 is clearly a natural cross-border partner for us,” says Andrea Williams, Director, eDiscovery Solutions at Commonwealth Legal. “Joining forces with D4 will not only increase existing capabilities for both organizations, but will mean greatly expanded services offerings for our clients as well.”
