  • Agreement strengthens EY’s position as a leader in eDiscovery and managed document review

Ernst & Young LLP (EY) announced that it acquired E-STET, a California-based legal technology company.

Founded in 2007, E-STET has helped make the practice of law more efficient by successfully combining people, technology and process. It has been on Inc. magazine’s 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies in America list for four consecutive years.

The E-STET team will join the EY eDiscovery team, part of the Fraud Investigation and Dispute Services (FIDS) practice, on the West Coast and can enhance its market-leading offerings across the United States in eDiscovery and managed document review. EY will leverage the capabilities of the E-STET team to help medium and small businesses make legal processes more cost efficient through its innovative workflows and use of technology.

“E-STET has a decade of experience helping companies navigate the complexity of eDiscovery and provides services that increase transparency, streamline legal processes and provide predictable pricing,” said Brian Loughman, Partner, Ernst & Young LLP, and the EY Americas FIDS Leader. “As we look for ways to better serve our clients and grow our business, we continue to make selected investments to bring more flexibility and scalability to our eDiscovery offerings so we can effectively serve clients and matters of all sizes.”
