Our Story

Ciaran and Christian met in 2000. While becoming fast friends, we realized we shared entrepreneurial ambitions. We decided to build a company together. Our goal was to create a business where our team, in years to come, would say “I was there when.” We’d both had periods in our careers where something special was happening – where the team was greater than the sum of the parts, where everyone was working like crazy, but no-one minded, because the mission was worth it, the culture was strong, and it was fun. We wanted to make that happen in our own company.

We came across the litigation support and eDiscovery industry in 2003. It was clear to us that eDiscovery would be huge pain point for corporations and law firms. We raised capital from a group of private investors and bought a business in December 2004 providing low tech litigation support services. In the 12 years since, we have built a thriving eDiscovery company thanks to a truly exceptional team. We have grown the business more than six-fold entirely from cash flow and organic growth. We believe that Discovia is a very special place. There is plenty more to do, and it has been a highly rewarding journey.
