At the beginning of 2021, Epiq rang in the new year with the launch of a new flexible staffing service, dubbed Epiq Counsel and aimed at corporate legal departments. And now, as the year is set to close, Epiq is bolstering its flexible staffing capabilities once again—but this time, through acquisition.

Epiq announced Wednesday it has acquired Canadian alternative legal services provider Simplex Services Inc., for an undisclosed amount. Originally founded in 2012 by former General Electric executives, Simplex and its affiliated Simplex Legal law firm provide flexible corporate legal staffing, technology services, and legal tech consulting throughout Canada.
