In the News!
Well, the cats are all out of their proverbial bags and the news is traveling fast.
This past week, Reportex’s owner and now RVP, Canada West for Veritext (Canada), Christy Pratt, has been making the media circuit with our exciting news.
“We are committed to best-in-class service, and under the Veritext umbrella we will now be able to offer reporting, transcription and integrated virtual services not just in BC but also across Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario,” Pratt said in a statement provided by the company. “And our cross-border clients will now have access to the same leading-edge services throughout the United States.”
We could not be more excited to showcase our team and the excellent work that Reportex, All-Star, Island, and Kamloops have accomplished to this point. As we join forces with Ace, Amicus, Royal and Neesons, we look forward to developing a presence on the national stage.
With the teams and resources that are now available to us through this partnership, our focus on shaping the future of court reporting in Canada is becoming very real. To be able to lead the charge in this collaborative effort is both humbling and exhilarating!
As we move into this Canada-wide expansion, innovation in legal technology will remain at the forefront of our efforts. Next week, we will be launching a new client series, highlighting all of our e-Solutions and providing practical information about our services to enhance the new technologies (and support) available to all of our clients.
Christy is speaking today (Sept 17th) at the BC Paralegal’s Association (BCPA) Members’ Conference, The Essential Ingredient, about our most recent e-trial which was the first of its kind in British Columbia.
And keep your eye out for an article in Canadian Lawyer magazine that will be coming soon.
Court Reporting Company Veritext Acquires Canadian Company Reportex, Expanding Its North America Scope
The New Jersey-based court reporting company Veritext Legal Solutions, which already provides a variety of deposition and litigation support solutions, has acquired Canadian court reporting company Reportex and its family of brands in British Columbia.
As part of the acquisition, Veritext also acquired United Reporting in Vancouver and Kamloops Reporting Services in Kamloops. Both companies, along with All-Star in New Westminster and Island Reporting in Victoria (which Reportex recently acquired), will be integrated into Veritext as part of Reportex, making up the company’s British Columbia arm.
Veritext already owned Canadian reporting firms Neesons in Toronto; Royal Reporting in Winnipeg, Regina and Saskatoon; ACE Reporting in Edmonton; and Amicus Reporting Group in Calgary. This latest acquisition gives it coast-to-coast coverage within Canada.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Founded in 1983 and acquired by Christy Pratt in 2006, Reportex offers a range of court reporting, realtime reporting and virtual services.
Last year, it designed, implemented and facilitated the first fully electronic trial in Vancouver, a landmark First Nations rights case in which the trial spanned 200 days.
