CHICAGO, Illinois – February 16, 2022 – Veralocity, a programmatic professional services company supporting corporate legal departments and law firms, announces its launch today. Veralocity delivers legal intelligence at the earliest juncture through purpose-built eDiscovery solutions proven to reduce risk and achieve measurable cost avoidance and spend reduction.

Derived from the roots vera, meaning “truth,” and velocity, meaning “speed,” Veralocity’s name is its mission: to bring speed to truth. Veralocity works as a flexible resource and an extension of client legal teams, leveraging the talent of its experienced consultants and trusted partners, including sister company Veristar. Together they deliver customized, holistic discovery services including forensic data collection, processing and hosting, managed review and a range of managed services. For its clients, Veralocity’s programmatic approach means rapid evidence acquisition and evaluation for increased speed to case strategy. It means better predictability of outcomes and mitigation of risk. And it means reduction of total project and portfolio spend.

“Legal teams are under constant pressure to find new ways of reducing both risk and total spend, and our purpose is to help them achieve those goals,” says Veralocity CEO Dan Panitz. “I am honored to be collaborating with our team’s industry experts to focus on solving the critical issues facing our clients today, delivering customized solutions that promote risk reduction to free cash flow, more efficiently focus resources, measurably avoid costs and effectively lower total project and portfolio spend.”
