The American Lawyer has reported that two big players in information governance and e-discovery law, Redgrave and Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, will combine in one of the largest law firm mergers to date this year.
With the combination, Am Law 100 firm Nelson Mullins aims to offer clients one of the country’s largest information governance and e-discovery law practices, an area it says is increasing in demand as companies generate more and more data.
Nelson Mullins’ wholly owned Encompass subsidiary will become Encompass Redgrave in a deal that will create a 130-professional practice of lawyers, technologists, and data managers. Encompass has been led by partner John Martin since its inception more than a decade ago. The combination provides a “significant market advantage” by making Nelson Mullins’ Encompass Redgrave practice one of the largest information governance and e-discovery law players for large matters with high-risk exposure, said Redgrave’s founder, Jonathan Redgrave, who will co-lead the practice with Martin.
