Legal Staffing Inc. announced today it merged with Universal Court Reporting to form a new firm, Universal Legal, which will offer both legal staffing and court reporting services.
The new company is based in Fort Lauderdale FL, and it will provide attorneys, paralegals and legal assistants.
David Welch, president of Universal Legal, said combining the companies will allow clients to make one call instead of two or three. "It just made sense to put both companies under one roof," Welch said.
The company is also gearing up in the economic downturn to be ready when the economy improves. Welch said the company is adding recruiters as well as sales people and account executive for the court reporting side of the business. It expects to have 25 internal employees by the end of April. Right now, the firm has internal staff of 18 and 45 court reporters.
The merger took effect last week.
