I hate to say that it is not surprising that Merrill Corp. decided to sell their legal services group while the international customer base still held significant value. This lets Merrill drop a division that felt like it had lost momentum and market differentiation. As the eDiscovery service market evolves, traditional providers must either grow, innovate or die.  DTI has steadily acquired stalled regional providers for their clients and talent, but this is their largest acquisition to date. DTI moved early into outsourced discovery managed services and now I am watching to see if they can convert these acquired litigation customers into long term management subscriptions.
