Press release

WEST PALM BEACH, FL - June 2, 2011 - FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that its FTI Technology practice has been included in the “Leaders” quadrant in Gartner’s "Magic Quadrant for E-discovery Software" report (Debra Logan and John Bace, May 13, 2011). Twenty-four software providers were evaluated in the report, the first Magic Quadrant published by Gartner on e-discovery software. A complimentary copy of the report is available at the FTI Technology site.

According to the report, “Gartner estimates that the world's enterprise e-discovery software market came to $889 million in 2009 in terms of total software vendor revenue. We forecast a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 14%, which means the total should reach $1.5 billion in 2013.” Gartner also states that, “The market covered by this Magic Quadrant contains vendors of e-discovery software solutions for the processing, review, analysis and production of ESI in support of the common-law discovery process for litigation, regardless of delivery method.”

Seth Rierson, senior managing director and FTI Technology practice leader said, “Our flexible mix of software, services and consulting helps clients confidently lower the total cost of discovery without imposing a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to the unique requirements of different cases. We believe that being recognized by Gartner as a leader in e-discovery software affirms this strategy and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our global team.”
