Veristar, a premier legal services delivery firm, today announced the acquisition of Planet Data, accelerating the firm’s offerings and solutions for corporate legal departments and law firms. Planet Data Solutions, Inc. will sell its assets to Veristar. Planet Data’s Exego® software division will operate under a separate Exego LLC.
“We are excited to be joining forces with the outstanding Planet Data team,” said Veristar company founder, CEO and president, Rick Avers. “Acquiring the deep bench of litigation support professionals at Planet Data greatly enhances our current capabilities and positions Veristar for continued growth.
