(NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that it has been recognized as an industry leader in eight categories of The Recorder’s Best of 2014 reader rankings. This is the ninth annual California-based reader’s choice rankings of top legal services, from vendors to law firms and law schools.

FTI Consulting, FTI Technology and its Ringtail e-discovery software were named as leaders in the following categories:

  • Best End-to-End E-discovery Solution
  • Best Litigation Consulting Services
  • Best Global Risk & Investigation Services
  • Best Case Management Solutions
  • Best Predictive Coding Solutions
  • Best Forensic Accounting Provider
  • Best Jury/Trial Consulting Services
  • Best Business Accounting Provider

“FTI Technology is different from many e-discovery software and service providers in that we work closely with our clients to solve their unique challenges,” said Sophie Ross, Senior Managing Director and Western Region Head of FTI Technology’s San Francisco office. “This is why The Recorder’s end-user recognition from California lawyers is especially gratifying.”

Brian Napper, Senior Managing Director and Leader of the Dispute Advisory Services practice at FTI Consulting, based in San Francisco, said, “Acknowledgement as a leading consulting firm in several categories, including litigation consulting, forensic accounting, global risk and investigations, business accounting and trial services, signifies the standards to which we hold our entire team. We continuously strive to provide deep value and excellence to all of our clients and are honored to be recognized with this prestigious award. Our clients' needs vary significantly and thus we are pleased that FTI Consulting's breadth of expertise in numerous services has been recognized.”

In addition to these awards from e-discovery practitioners, a number of legal and IT publications, including The National Law Journal and KMWorld, recently recognized FTI Consulting and its Ringtail software as leaders within e-discovery software and services. Most recently, FTI Technology was included in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of Gartner’s ‘Magic Quadrant for E-discovery Software’ report (Jie Zhang, Debra Logan, Garth Landers, June 19, 2014). A complimentary copy of the report is available at the FTI Technology site.

More than 3,800 readers from California participated in the 2014 survey, nearly half of whom are practicing attorneys, to vote for the best providers of services, products or education to U.S. law firms. For each category, the winners were ranked by pure popularity among peers – the choice with the most votes won.
