Litigants across the country are a step closer to a one-stop shop for court-reporting needs as Veritext Legal Solutions, through its Canadian arm, VT Canada Litigation Solutions, Inc., expands into western Canada.
National scope for court reporting
Veritext, the largest court reporting firm in the world, chose Neesons as its first Canadian partner and has now added two more firms to its stable in this country — Edmonton-based A.C.E. Reporting and Royal Reporting, which has offices in Regina and Saskatoon, and a new office which recently opened Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The Veritext plan began as a foothold in Toronto with Neesons, its flagship office, and from there is building a truly national presence in Canada. These acquisitions bring the dream one step closer.
As lawyers litigate in many different Canadian geographies, being able to access consistent, quality service and technology, wherever they are in the country, will become an important part of their toolkit and brand.
In addition to its 70 bricks-and-mortar locations across the U.S., all equipped with state-of-the-art deposition suites, Veritext gained a reputation in the field for innovation since entering the litigation support industry in 1997.
“We’re excited to become a part of a well-respected court-reporting company that continually innovates to bring best practices to our industry,” says Lucille Derkach, Principal of Royal and A.C.E. Reporting.
“Having founded Royal in 1985, and having expanded our business through acquisitions over the years, it’s a dream come true to become part of an international brand,” she says.
A.C.E. Reporting was acquired by Royal Reporting in 2015, following its establishment 15 years earlier in Edmonton.
“It’s a great time to provide clients with a one-stop shop,” adds Chad Heibein, controller and principal of Royal.
“With the opening of our new office in Winnipeg, and now adding Toronto to our network, our clients will be able to travel to multiple locations in Canada and experience the same top quality and service they’ve come to expect.”
The new additions to the Veritext team provide the firm with unparalleled coverage in Canada. Existing clients stand to benefit from the company’s commitment to the latest technology.
Among these advances is an intuitive transcript portal user-friendly document-sharing platform including MyVeritext, VT Canada’s user-friendly client portal, which provides easy scheduling, seamless access to schedules, transcripts and exhibits, as well as the industry’s most robust search utility. Lawyers can also avail themselves of free seminars on the MyVeritext portal.
