NEW YORK, July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ DOAR, Inc., a global litigation strategy and expert consulting company, announces the acquisition of Expert Search Group, LLC, an expert witness referral company based in Pensacola, FL. Expert Search Group (“ESG”) will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of DOAR. Cynthia Scheltema, one of ESG’s founders, will continue to oversee ESG’s operations and will join DOAR as its Affiliate Manager, responsible for managing the company’s affiliation with industry and subject-matter experts who work in conjunction with DOAR’s litigation strategy consulting teams.
DOAR’s acquisition of ESG provides the company with a team of industry veterans who understand the value that expert witnesses bring to the litigation process and who know how to identify and qualify experts for various types of cases. ESG also gives DOAR an entrée into a much larger segment of the legal market by providing a lower-cost, flat fee service that is more suitable for smaller budget cases.
DOAR’s CEO, Paul Neale, states “The acquisition of ESG allows us to enter into a different segment of the litigation market and to provide a high quality solution at a lower cost for lawyers involved in litigation matters that do not have the budget or the need to retain a larger consulting firm like DOAR. Cynthia and her team are well-respected by both their clients and the experts they refer and I’m glad to have them join us.”
Cynthia Scheltema adds “I very much look forward to working with DOAR to expand its affiliate network and to continue ESG’s growth and success. DOAR is at the top of the pyramid of consulting and testifying experts and I am proud to be a part of the company.”
The acquisition closed on July 1, 2016 and no information regarding the terms of the deal is being disclosed. For more information, contact Paul Neale at (212) 235-2707 or inquire@DOAR.com.
