PHOENIX, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 24, 2007 --Encore Legal Solutions, a leading national provider of electronic discovery solutions, today announced that it has agreed to serve as the lead sponsor of the Legal Transformation Study, a groundbreaking initiative to develop future scenarios for the global legal industry through 2020.

The Legal Transformation Study is being jointly produced and published by Decision Strategies International, Strategic Radar and Legal Research Center. The Study will include a detailed industry assessment to identify key global trends and uncertainties shaping the future of the legal industry, resulting in four distinct scenarios that the legal industry may face in the next decade. These scenarios will be used as a framework for challenging current service models within the industry, answering key strategic questions, and helping stakeholders, including corporate law departments, law firms and legal service suppliers, identify proactive strategies to ensure future success.

Encore has signed on to the project at the highest level of sponsorship, entitling the company to a role on the project steering committee and the opportunity to help design and shape the scope of the Study.

"There are a wide range of dynamic forces driving change in the delivery of legal services, including the continued proliferation of electronically stored information, and Encore is at the heart of these changes in our role as a strategic partner to law firms and corporate legal departments," said Greg Mazares, chief executive officer of Encore Legal Solutions. "We are pleased to invest in the future of our industry through the Legal Transformation Study and are privileged to play a significant role in this groundbreaking project by offering our industry knowledge and expertise to help frame the scope of the Study."

The Study has commenced and should be completed by the end of June 2007, with a final report scheduled for distribution in August 2007.
