Advanced Depositions Welcomes HG Litigation Services

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 11, 2019 — Advanced Depositions is pleased to announce that HG Litigation Services, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, has joined the Advanced Depositions family of companies, creating a unique alliance of best-in-class court reporting and litigation support companies, with over 70 years of combined industry experience.

HG’s team and infrastructure will remain in place, continuing to provide its clients with the highest level of personalized service coupled with the best technologies. It will be “business as usual” at HG, with the added benefit of Advanced’s coast-to-coast infrastructure, resources, and experienced team.

“As I considered strategic options for HG, it was immediately clear that Advanced Depositions was the perfect fit for us. Advanced shares our driving passion for client service and for the industry, while the concept of personalized service seems to be disappearing at other larger agencies,” said Diana Osberg, founder and CEO of HG. “Combining HG’s longstanding experience in complex litigation with the strategic vision, experience, and resources of Advanced Depositions creates a highly unique value proposition for our clients.”

“HG and Advanced will combine to form a national leader in terms of service, technology, and quality,” said John Anderson, CEO of Advanced Depositions. “We are grateful for the opportunity to carry on the legacy of one of the most highly respected companies in our industry, and to continue to invest in HG’s team and reporters. Also, we’re very pleased to have Mark Bakewell, HG’s COO, bring his leadership and industry knowledge into his expanded role as COO of the combined company.”

“HG and our long-tenured staff and leadership will remain in place to continue providing our clients with the best-in-class experience we are known for creating. HG is such a strong company; combined with Advanced Depositions, the sky is the limit,” said Mark Bakewell, Chief Operating Officer.

Advanced Live features include:

Live Video and Audio Feeds:  Stream audio and video in real time; attendees can see and listen to what an interviewee is saying instantly.

Real-time Streaming Text:  As information is entered into the court reporter’s stenograph machine, that data is then formatted and displayed within the deposition room in real time.
