Lexakos Acquires Information Technology Staffing Group to Complement Growing Legal Business Consulting Practice

Corporations Focused on Mitigating Information Management Risk Have Struggled to Harmonize the Legal, Compliance, IT and Operational Components of Effective Compliance; Lexakos Consulting Stabilizes These Cross-Functional Challenges Through Specialized Technology Staffing Solutions on a Temporary and Permanent Basis

NEW YORK, NY–(MARKET WIRE)–Dec 2, 2008 — Organizations seeking to reduce risk, contain costs and improve productivity received a boost today when legal business consulting firm Lexakos announced the acquisition of key assets from premier information technology staffing firm, The Wilson Group, and the launch of a new business unit called Lexakos Consulting and Staffing Services Group.”Organizations continue to be burdened with complex information management and global compliance issues, and need better strategies to protect critical assets, but resources for handling these specialized areas are hard to find. In acquiring The Wilson Group, we added a proprietary database with over 40,000 technologists and a recruiting team poised to address the pressing needs of our clients,” says Lexakos Founder, Rick Wolf. “We know how to identify individuals who understand how legal, compliance and IT interrelate, and stand ready to recruit professionals with these overlapping skill sets.”

“We have been seeing a sharp increase of demand for IT candidates who understand legal compliance. Our clients recognize the need for immediate solutions, but do not have the resources or expertise to address the problems they face,” says Jonathan Schwartz, President of The Wilson Group, who will be joining Lexakos as Executive Vice President, Operations. “There is a short supply of candidates qualified to lead corporations in this specialized area. We are excited to join Lexakos and leverage our proprietary candidate placement system to support our clients.”

As part of the deal, Brandt Josephson, a managing partner of The Wilson Group, will join Lexakos as Executive Vice President, Strategic Business Services. The firm will combine offices in New York City and New Jersey to maximize synergies.

Lexakos Consulting is a business advisory that specializes in records management policy deployment, compliance program management and business conflict resolution for corporations, law firms and other organizations.

The Wilson Group is a boutique firm specializing in providing information technology staffing solutions. Since 1991, our client list includes many Fortune 500 companies.
