LONDON and FRANKFURT, Germany, Sept. 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epiq Systems (NASDAQ:EPIQ), a leading global provider of integrated technology solutions for the legal profession, today announced the launch of an office in Frankfurt, Germany consistent with its previously stated goal of expanding its international footprint. The Frankfurt office offers Epiq's full suite of eDiscovery services, including processing and hosting of electronically stored information (ESI) and document review services. Epiq will also offer managed services through its affiliate Iris Data Services.
Establishing an office in Germany enables Epiq to ensure secure and cost-effective eDiscovery solutions for German legal and corporate clients, while also helping global enterprises comply with privacy and data protection regulations. Due to stringent national data security standards, German legal professionals need in-country, state-of-the-art security for data hosting, processing and storage, and other types of evidence handling.
The Frankfurt office also provides full service eDiscovery solutions including eDiscovery managed services. Clients will benefit from a comprehensive document review center and data processing and hosting secured by a world-class data centre in Frankfurt.
With offices in the US, UK, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan and, now in Germany, Epiq provides local knowledge and expertise with global reach. Epiq has extensive experience working on complex, cross-border matters and providing on-site, secure solutions via its forensic collections and mobile offerings, all of which enable its clients to satisfy a myriad of complex regulatory and legal requirements.
"The launch of a full-service eDiscovery office in Germany reflects our continuing commitment to offer new and current clients our industry-leading platform throughout the world," said Brad D. Scott, president and chief operating officer of Epiq Systems. "The global nature of eDiscovery necessitates compliance with data privacy laws and regulations of various countries, some of which are very protective of personally identifiable information, such as Germany. German clients and those working in Germany must navigate stringent data security and privacy standards that present unique challenges to the eDiscovery process. To that end, we have assembled a team of eDiscovery professionals who are poised to put their extensive knowledge of the German market to work for clients immediately."
