Company History

DTI was founded in 1998 in Chicago, IL, initially providing off-site copying and printing services to the local legal market. Using a sophisticated, efficient and professional model enabled delivery of high quality, timely, and cost-effective services. DTI replicated its successful paradigm, establishing operations in 12 additional markets by the end of 2002. This resulted in new recognition as a national service provider. 

Leveraging its knowledge of law firm operations and proven document management capabilities, DTI entered the on-site legal facilities management (FM) business in 1999.

In 2003, DTI expanded the scope of its offerings to include electronically stored information (ESI) services. The company’s Atlanta-based National Technology Center (“NTC East”) was opened in 2004 to provide a platform capable of supporting a wide range of ESI functions, including computer forensics, data acquisition, data extraction and conversion and web hosting.

Expansion into new markets continued and by 2007 DTI had established operations in most major legal markets in the U.S. Continued growth has been achieved both organically and by strategic acquisition, including that of e-discovery pioneer and industry leader Daticon EED in 2010.

In 2011, DTI further expanded the scope of its offerings to include Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) services – adding support for clients in areas such as word processing and proofreading, creative services, research, finance & accounting, contract management and managed document review. In support of these services, the company opened its first two KPO centers, located in Atlanta and Washington, DC.

2012 was another year of great change for DTI as it rebranded in order to accommodate services and offerings that go beyond “Documents and Technology,” plus the company acquired Texas-based Providus, a leading provider of legal staffing, recruiting, and document review services. In November 2012, DTI acquired Fios. Further solidifying its mission to remain as a Top Tier provider and thus capturing additional intellectual capital, technical expertise and extensive technology infrastructure.

In January 2014, DTI continued its growth trajectory with the acquisitions of Applied Discovery, one of the most established e-discovery brands in the market, Falcon Discovery, a provider of managed document review and discovery management services and Hudson Legal’s eDiscovery practice, one of the largest and longest serving providers of eDiscovery consulting and managed review. These acquisitions have furthered DTI’s depth of expertise with highly experienced project management and service professionals.

Throughout its history DTI has maintained a client-centric focus, and sustained growth allows the company to leverage a unique balance of a national footprint and economies of scale with local decision-making abilities and high quality service delivery.

DTI is recognized today as the largest privately held legal process outsourcing company in the U.S.
