May 15, 2012 - PRLog -- ATLANTA – TrustPoint International (, a leading provider of collection, e-discovery, consulting, and managed review services, and Excelerate Discovery (, one of the fastest growing staffing and managed review solutions providers, today announced they will merge and operate under the Trustpoint International name.  The combined companies will consult and provide solutions for corporate legal departments and law firms through the entire litigation lifecycle, from legal hold notification through to final production, enabling clients of both companies to be more effective and efficient in the e-discovery process.  

“By bundling the numerous discovery services, TrustPoint can not only help achieve major cost savings, but also provide our clients with customized solutions tailored to their specific needs,” Mark Hawn, CEO of TrustPoint stated.  “We will provide our clients with one hand to shake throughout the entire e-discovery process. This complete technology and consulting support for all e-discovery tasks in the litigation lifecycle – managed by one organization – creates efficiencies in time and cost while mitigating risk.”

Christopher Jensen, Partner at Excelerate, added “TrustPoint’s approach is to provide clients with expert advice and feasible options at each decision point in the discovery process.  Combining the two companies’ highly qualified teams, best-of-breed technologies, and innovative processes makes sense, as it provides a single service provider to our clients, with integrated services across the entire EDRM [Electronic Discovery Reference Model] model, reducing time and saving money by simplifying transitions and hand-offs from the collections, processing, review and production phases of discovery.”

Having a true end-to-end option also provides clients with a variety of alternative pricing models that offer transparency, predictability, and certainty - most notably a subscription based model and a per document model.  By controlling the steps in the e-discovery process, TrustPoint is able to eliminate inefficiencies, thus reducing cost.  These savings are then passed on to the client.

TrustPoint’s capabilities extend beyond litigation e-discovery to investigations, regulatory issues, compliance, and related legal matters.  In addition, its’ Client Advisory Group, the specialized consulting arm comprised of experienced project managers and consultants throughout the country, consult on such areas as Litigation Hold, Identification and Preservation, Collection and Early Case Assessment, Processing, Hosting, Document Review, Technology Assisted Review, and Production.  

Excelerate Discovery was founded in 2009 by Mark Hawn and Christopher Jensen.  TrustPoint International was formed in 2010, under the leadership of Hawn, Rick Avers, and Todd Tabor.   The combined company’s Board of Managers will consist of Hawn, Jensen, Avers, Ed Caufield and Marc Zamsky.  TrustPoint has offices in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., and has Fortune 500 companies and Am Law 100 law firms as clients.

At this time all lines of communication including e-mail addresses and phone numbers will remain the same. If any changes occur at a later time, TrustPoint will be in contact with its clients about the new numbers and/or e-mail addresses. Rollout of the combined brand will take place over time; until then, clients will continue to see the Excelerate name and logo. Clients will still be able to go to both websites to find out about our offerings and services.
