Greensboro, N.C. (February. 25, 2020) – Technology Concepts & Design, Inc. (TCDI), a pioneer in legal technology, announced today their partnership with Trivest Partners, LP (“Trivest”). Trivest, a private investment firm that focuses on partnering with founder based businesses in the United States and Canada, has made a growth investment in TCDI.
For over 30 years, TCDI has been a pioneer in the legal technology market, specializing in large-scale litigation case management, eDiscovery, managed document review, computer forensics and cybersecurity. During this time, TCDI has developed long-lasting client relationships, which fuel their commitment to continue adapting their product and service solutions to meet the ever-evolving market changes.
