Merrill Corporation Unveils Merrill Legal Solutions

Press release from the issuing company

ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 31 -- In response to the changing needs of the legal marketplace, Merrill Corporation has formed Merrill Legal Solutions (MLS) to further strengthen its position as a global provider of technology-enabled business solutions to the world's largest law firms and corporate legal departments. As a single-source solution provider, MLS offers clients a cost-effective approach to procuring a comprehensive and integrated suite of on-site or on-demand products and services. Merrill created MLS by integrating its Document Management Services business unit with WordWave, Inc., a company it acquired in January 2006. MLS combines the technology-enabled litigation support capabilities of Document Management Services with WordWave's court reporting and trial services. "Our clients are looking to us to help them achieve efficiency and productivity for their litigation practice," stated Perry Solomon, President of Merrill Legal Solutions. "By converging litigation life-cycle support services with technology, we've created a one-stop shop that law firms can use from the time a complaint is received until the case is resolved." MLS strengthens Merrill's commitment to providing lawyers and law firms with innovative solutions for enhancing productivity and efficiency. The acquisition of WordWave and formation of MLS is part of Merrill's on-going expansion effort and overall diversification strategy. "With the creation of MLS, we've expanded our product line to encompass the litigation life cycle from complaint to resolution," said Al McNee, President of sales, Merrill Legal Solutions. "This is yet another example of Merrill's commitment to responding to the changing legal marketplace and meeting the needs of its clients." Building upon Merrill's existing offering, Merrill Legal Solutions now provides on-site/on-demand document management services, litigation technology services, court reporting services, on-site office services and adjacencies such as financial printing, document translations and engraving.
