FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SHEPHERD DATA SERVICES® CONTINUES GROWTH AND EXPANDS OFFICE SPACE AND E-DISCOVERY SERVICES IN DOWNTOWN MINNEAPOLIS
Open house celebration included lawyers enjoying guest speaker Joshua Gilliland, Esq. of Bow Tie Law as well as facility tours, appetizers, and refreshments
Minneapolis, MN, April 22, 2013 - Shepherd Data Services (Shepherd), a Minneapolis-based leader in full-service litigation support, including e-discovery and review technology, announced that it has expanded its corporate office space to accommodate its rapid growth. The company, which provides services to top law firms in the Twin Cities, has increased capacity and security for processing as well as software training and CLE programs. Shepherd shared in its celebration of this accomplishment with clients and vendor partners last Wednesday. This included a CLE presentation by Joshua Gilliland, Esq., blogger for Bow Tie Law, with refreshments and appetizers afterward. The company is still located at 527 Marquette Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55402, but it now has the entire third floor and has expanded to the fourth floor as well. Shepherd is the anchor tenant of the Rand Tower.
Gilliland is an internationally known presenter on e-discovery. During his presentation, he intrigued the audience of lawyers, litigation support professionals, paralegals, and vendor partners with an hour-long presentation entitled “Litigation’s New Reality: What You Must Know NOW About e-Discovery.” The lively presentation provided a great deal of recent case law information and practical tips which attendees could take into action immediately.
Gilliland said, "Shepherd is the e-discovery service provider with the professional feel of a law firm. Their staff understands both the practice of law and leveraging electronic discovery technology to solve legal problems. They have built a truly impressive new office.”
Under the leadership of Christine Chalstrom, Shepherd has experienced consistent growth and successsince its inception in 2002. Even though the company moved into a larger space just six years ago, Chalstrom realized that to maintain top-notch client services and support, the company needed more space. This 100 percent woman-owned business has grown from a one-person operation to a full-service professional firm of legal, technology, IT, software, and project management experts. Shepherd continues to expand its portfolio of services. From its high-volume data processing to its cutting-edge portfolio of licensed legal software, Shepherd has become a leading litigation support company in the Twin Cities.
“I am truly humbled by the amount of clients and industry acquaintances that attended the presentation and our open house,” said Chalstrom. “We have gone through a lot of positive changes over the years, and to have the support of the local community is amazing. The team here at Shepherd is ready for the future, and we look forward to continuing to provide the BEST consultation and services around.”
