iControl ESI, a national provider of e-Discovery services, reported on September 8, 2011 it has acquired Silicon Valley-based Firefly Dataworks LLC, a leading provider of electronic discovery services to law firms and corporate legal departments throughout the region. The acquisition allows iControl ESI to further increase its visibility and expand its proprietary hosted review software, Recenseo to Firefly Datawork’s large customer base.
Firefly Dataworks President and Co-founder Christopher A. Lorenz has been named Vice-President, Sales. Mr. Lorenz will assume responsibility for leading iControl ESI’s national sales function, and increasing the company’s brand recognition and reputation as a first-rate, knowledge-driven service provider.
“This acquisition makes sense on several fronts,” said Michael J. Conner, President of iControl ESI. “First and foremost, we are acquiring a growing company with terrific customer-centered sales leadership. Secondly, we now have access to a larger customer base that has been looking for a superior review platform, and feel strongly that Recenseo will fill that need.”
