HOUSTON, Texas (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
Kiersted Systems, a leader in e-Discovery services and legal technology solutions, has announced that it has reached agreement with Mitratech, a leading provider of enterprise legal management solutions, for Mitratech to acquire the TeamConnect Legal Hold product Kiersted developed.
“Five years ago, Kiersted Systems embarked on a quest to combine our expertise in Legal Hold with our deep technical knowledge of TeamConnect to develop a unique and compelling Legal Hold solution. I am very pleased to say that the product has been adopted widely and has provided much value,” said Kiersted President, George Kiersted.
“Our partnership with Kiersted Systems has been invaluable over the past four years,” noted Mitratech CEO Jason Parkman. “With their support, almost 20% of TeamConnect clients have taken advantage of TeamConnect Legal Hold’s mission-critical functionality. It is because of the value that our clients realize in this product that we pursued this acquisition.”
TeamConnect Legal Hold helps legal staff create, maintain, and enforce a legal hold process that can withstand judicial scrutiny, minimizing overall risk to the business. Using the product, legal departments are able to identify matters requiring legal hold early in the matter life cycle, select custodians using integration through an HR database, quickly pull needed documentation for court appearances, get real-time tracking, reports and compliance, and more.
Kiersted is a proud Mitratech partner. Its experienced TeamConnect professionals have developed a range of solutions to add value to TeamConnect implementations.
“We enjoy a productive partnership with Mitratech, and I look forward to the investment and ingenuity Mitratech will bring to Legal Hold going forward. We will work to ensure a smooth transition and will continue to offer our high level of expertise to existing and new Legal Hold users, and to the wider TeamConnect community,” George Kiersted said.
For 30 years, Kiersted has provided leading products and services to corporate legal departments. The company remains committed to providing top quality solutions to meet and exceed the needs of its clients as well as legal departments of all kinds.
