N.J.-based Everest Technologies, Philly-based Wolfinger Forensics announce merger

Florham Park-based Everest Technologies and Philadelphia-based Wolfinger Forensics LLC announced Wednesday that they have merged.

The pair also announced Brian T. Wolfinger has been named the new company’s chief technology officer. He assumed the role on Monday.

Wolfinger has extensive experience in digital forensics and joined the eDiscovery industry in 2005 when he founded LDiscovery, known now as KLDiscovery. He retired from LDiscovery after six months and founded Wolfinger Forensics.

“I’m looking forward to working with this incredible team and trying to expand on what they’ve done so far,” Wolfinger said. “It is a natural fit to add in digital forensics and collections with Everest’s other services, and their offerings compliment ours also. On top of that I get to work with people that I consider friends and have known for years. Everest is family-oriented company and I’m grateful to be the latest part of that, plus I’m proud to associate the brand we created at Wolfinger Forensics with these great people. I feel it is a perfect fit for both companies and all of our clients.”

“I’m really excited to have Brian join our team, and to merge our great company with his.” Tom Pellegrino, CEO of Everest Technologies, said. “I watched from a distance, and then from the inside, as he and his partners took LDiscovery from a four-person company to a global force in the industry. To have his years of experience working inside some of the largest cases in the country, and within one of the industry’s largest vendors, is a huge benefit to us and to our clients. He is a good friend, and I couldn’t be happier to be working with him again.”

Terms of the merger were not disclosed.
