M2 EQUITYBITES-July 12, 2016-Doar Acquires US Expert Witness Referral Company


12 July 2016 - US-based litigation strategy and expert consulting company Doar, Inc. has acquired US-based expert witness referral firm Expert Search Group, LLC, the company said.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Expert Search Group 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 entree 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.

The acquisition closed on July 1, 2016 and no information regarding the terms of the deal is being disclosed.

Doar provides consulting and testifying experts and litigation strategists in high-stakes, complex regulatory, civil and criminal legal disputes.

The company advises law firms, corporations and individuals involved in antitrust, employment, intellectual property, international, securities, and white collar criminal disputes around the world.

Doar tests and develops litigation strategies using research, visuals and technology, and provides industry and subject matter experts.

Expert Search Group, founded by an attorney and a veteran of the expert witness industry, conducts custom searches for experts in legal matters across the United States for a flat fee that provides a cost-effective way for lawyers to retain the most qualified expert.
