Huron Consulting Group Expands Global E-Discovery Offerings With India Document Review And Data Operations Facility

Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced the expansion of its discovery offerings with a document review center and data operations team in India. The Company offers around-the-clock global discovery support with 1,500 seats at nine locations across the U.S., U.K., and India to address clients’ complex business needs.

“Our global clients require 24/7 e-discovery services to address their complex and time-sensitive needs,” said Shahzad Bashir, executive vice president, Huron Legal. “Our expansion in India enhances our ability to provide the seamless and highly responsive support that is so critical for our clients.”

Huron Legal is expanding global offerings to clients with the opening of the custom designed 125-seat center in Gurgaon.

“We can now fully serve our clients at any time with our global network,” said Bob Rowe, managing director and head of Discovery services, Huron Legal. “Unlike many, we did not start in India – we brought our tried and tested processes to the country after many successful years in North America and Europe. And, consistent with our clients’ needs, our facility is managed by lawyers trained and licensed in the U.S.”

The Company’s India facility is also home to a new data operations team. Working together with similar teams in the U.S. and U.K., the India team will provide electronic discovery processing, online hosting, and document production services to Huron Legal’s clients. The India data operations team also increases the number of skilled professionals available to provide legal discovery services to clients working in the eastern hemisphere and after hours in the western hemisphere.

“Our global technology operations provide the flexibility and efficiency of around-the-clock service that our clients throughout the world expect,” said James Zinn, managing director and head of Huron Legal’s Technology organization. “We are dedicated to helping our clients succeed – no matter when or where they need us.”

The India facility is located about 20 miles from the national capital of New Delhi in Gurgaon, Haryana. The facility adheres to Huron Legal’s predictably priced, streamlined e-discovery model.

The Huron Legal solution maximizes value and efficiency, while providing predictable, up-front capped costs with measurable quality. Huron Legal has the resources necessary to undertake large-scale document reviews and perform a full range of services that includes preservation, collection, processing, hosting, review, and production.
