E-discovery companies are getting restless. Sure, there’s a lot of work in the U.S., but there’s also a whole wide world out there in need of e-discovery services. And in large part, they can thank active local legislators for that. From South America to Europe and Asia, national privacy laws are changing the way data can and can’t be transferred from certain countries, making a local presence all the more important.

Add to that the increasingly global nature of business, and it’s little surprise that every month it seems another e-discovery company gets the travel bug. Riding the growth in the industry, and in some cases leveraging private equity investment, companies like Epiq, afyie, Relativity, DISCO, FTI Consulting and Elevate, for instance, have established or grown footholds in Europe, Asia and South America over the past few years.
