U.S. Legal Support Inc., a leading provider of litigation support services in the United States, is pleased to announce its successful acquisition of Summit Court Reporting, an independent court reporting company based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that has been offering comprehensive services for nearly thirty years. This strategic acquisition aligns with U.S. Legal Support’s initiative to enhance court reporting coverage and capabilities in the north-eastern region of the country.
Summit Court Reporting, a certified woman-owned company, has been serving clients in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York with court reporting and videography services. In recent times, they have expanded their offerings to a limited extent nationally and internationally. By combining Summit’s expertise with U.S. Legal Support’s comprehensive ecosystem of litigation support services, this acquisition will enable the delivery of superior services to both existing and new clients. U.S. Legal Support offers an array of services, including court reporting, record retrieval, trial services, interpreting, translation, and transcription services.
Jimmie Bridwell, CEO of U.S. Legal Support, expressed his enthusiasm for the acquisition, highlighting the shared commitment of both organisations to exceptional client service. He warmly welcomed Summit Court Reporting, its clients, and its network of professional court reporters and videographers into the U.S. Legal Support family. Bridwell emphasised that this strategic acquisition reflects U.S. Legal Support’s dedication to supporting legal professionals nationwide and providing outstanding, accurate, and timely service.
Yvette Smith Samuel, President and Founder of Summit Court Reporting, expressed pride in joining forces with U.S. Legal Support. She emphasised that the partnership with U.S. Legal Support would allow clients to access industry-leading litigation support services under one umbrella. In addition to court reporting and videography, clients will now have access to professional legal interpreters, translation services, litigation consulting, and transcription services. Samuel assured clients and legal professionals in Philadelphia and surrounding areas that U.S. Legal Support and Summit Court Reporting share the same goal of providing excellent service and comprehensive coverage when and where it is needed.
Looking ahead, U.S. Legal Support plans to continue utilising acquisitions to unite nationwide litigation support resources with local expertise, aiming to deliver an exceptional customer experience. With offices already established in 2,700 cities across the country, U.S. Legal Support intends to expand its nationwide presence in key markets.
