In June 2014, Commonwealth Legal was acquired by Ricoh Canada as part of a broader strategy focused on the advancement of Ricoh Canada's Services transformation. The four years that followed the acquisition have been a dynamic and fruitful chapter in our 20-year history as we continued to grow and expand our presence in the eDiscovery market.
With Ricoh’s support and encouragement, we maintained the Commonwealth Legal brand and operated as an innovation incubator – most notably, launching Intelligent Review – a legal document review offering that enhances the discovery process using advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology.
Today, we are proud to announce that we are officially Ricoh eDiscovery!
With Commonwealth Legal’s integration into the broader Ricoh organization largely complete, and with the advancement of our collective eDiscovery, Information Governance and Legal Operations offerings, this is a logical time for us to solidify the Ricoh eDiscovery brand in Canada, work in closer alignment with Ricoh eDiscovery in the U.S., and lay the foundation for a more global offering.
As eDiscovery matures and becomes part of broader business processes, our services are moving further upstream into the corporate client environment where data resides. This is an exciting time for the industry and our business, as we formally align our capabilities to Ricoh’s overarching strategy of empowering the digital workplace for legal, corporate and government clients alike. Ricoh’s global scale, 80-year history of innovation and refusal to be limited by tradition, combined with our specialized expertise and entrepreneurial spirit, creates the perfect combination for the launch of a series of innovative, new technologies and offerings.
We look forward to sharing more with you in the months ahead… now, as Ricoh eDiscovery!
