The costs and risks associated with the massive proliferation of electronically stored information (ESI) have created significant challenges in the areas of e-discovery, document review, and information governance.

Encompass, a division of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP, was created to meet those challenges. Through a combination of legal judgment and advanced technology, we work closely with our clients to deliver scalable, defensible ESI solutions in a cost-sensitive manner.

Clients want to know what they can expect to pay for ESI services so they can budget accordingly. We enable sound budget management through predictable fee structures.

We have taken prominent roles in the ongoing evolution of ESI issues. Our Firm's lawyers are among the leaders of the American Bar Association, the Defense Research Institute, Lawyers for Civil Justice, and the International Association of Defense Counsel. We are also actively involved in thought leadership groups and associations such as the Sedona Conference, ARMA, and the E-Discovery Committee of the Center for Public Resources.


Encompass is not simply about delivering a set of tools. We are zealous advocates for our clients. We help you develop strategy and implement processes that are verifiable, defensible and repeatable to help improve litigation readiness. MORE


Encompass' commitment to promoting diversity includes proactive staffing practices and thoughtful selection of service providers. While continuing to select vendors on the basis of competitive technology, quality, responsiveness, delivery, and cost, it is our policy to provide minority-owned and women-owned businesses with an equal opportunity to be considered as suppliers for materials and services. MORE
