Huron Consulting Group Appoints Rowe As Huron Legal Practice Leader

Stocks in this article: HURN

Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced that Robert D. Rowe has been named to lead the Company’s Huron Legal practice. Rowe, who becomes an executive vice president of Huron, previously served as a managing director and leader of Huron Legal’s Discovery services business.

“Bob has been instrumental in the rapid growth of our Discovery services business, and I am confident that he will bring that same leadership to the entire practice,” said James H. Roth, chief executive officer and president, Huron Consulting Group. “Our global clients are under constant pressure to reduce legal costs, manage complex business and regulatory issues, and control the proliferation of electronic documents. Bob deeply understands the challenges that companies are facing, and the need for Huron Legal to provide a full portfolio of discovery and advisory capabilities to an expanding base of clients.”

Rowe has more than 20 years of experience providing comprehensive e-discovery solutions and project management for legal matters to Fortune 500 corporations and law firms. As the head of Huron Legal’s Discovery services business, he managed the Company’s e-discovery operations and offerings in the U.S. and internationally, including Huron’s newest offering of Integrated Analytics.

“I’m honored to lead Huron Legal,” said Rowe. “This is a tumultuous time for the legal sector, but it also presents many opportunities to help companies and law firms with services that meet their needs, and ultimately lead to Huron Legal’s growth. I look forward to the expansion of Huron Legal as we continue working to meet the rapidly evolving needs of our clients.”

Prior to joining Huron, Rowe was president and CEO of Nextra Litigation Solutions LLC, a company providing document review solutions for legal matters that Huron acquired in 2006. During his career, Rowe spent ten years practicing antitrust law in Washington, D.C. with AmLaw 100 firms and clerked for the Honorable Cornelia G. Kennedy of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. He received his J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School, where he was a member of Order of the Coif and managing editor of the Vanderbilt Law Review. Prior to attending law school, he served overseas in the United States Army as a Captain in Military Intelligence.
