Epiq Systems Expands eDiscovery Service Offerings and Opens New Offices in Hong Kong and Brussels

KANSAS CITY, Kan., March 30, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epiq Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:EPIQ), a leading provider of technology solutions for the legal profession, today reported that it has expanded its eDiscovery service offerings to include data collections, forensics and document review. Additionally, Epiq has opened new international eDiscovery offices in Hong Kong and Brussels. Epiq Systems' eDiscovery capabilities now represent a complete global end-to-end solution with a significant footprint in all major legal and financial centers to support large scale multinational cases.

The extension of service offerings to provide full lifecycle eDiscovery solutions further enhances Epiq's leadership position in the marketplace. These integrated services, delivered through our industry-leading DocuMatrix review platform, offer an optimized discovery process with significant bottom-line efficiencies for clients.

 -- Epiq's new Forensics Acquisition Services Team provides data
    preservation and collection services, with particular expertise
    in the requirements of foreign jurisdictions and in handling
    esoteric file systems and formats. In addition, the team provides
    early data assessment, data reduction, and sampling strategies to
    minimize unnecessary processing, and accelerate the
    identification of relevant information.

 -- Epiq Document Review Solutions, the company's new contract
    document review service, leverages its industry-leading
    DocuMatrix review platform to provide on-demand review of large
    data collections by qualified attorneys. Skilled at deploying
    DocuMatrix accelerators, specially trained attorneys working for
    Epiq can review data at several times the rate of a traditional
    linear review, dramatically reducing document review costs,
    typically the most expensive component of discovery.

Epiq Systems has also opened new eDiscovery offices to support clients more effectively in continental Europe and Asia.

 -- The new Brussels office adds client support for regulatory
    compliance engagements in the European Union.

 -- Epiq's Hong Kong office has a local datacenter and provides on
    the ground support across Asia.

Alongside Epiq's existing offices in New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, and London, these two new locations extend the company's reach in delivering worldwide eDiscovery client support.

Christopher E. Olofson, president and COO of Epiq Systems stated, "As a leading eDiscovery provider for top law firms and corporations, we continue to invest in our services and global presence to provide an optimized eDiscovery solution for clients.
