Deciding to exit a business you’ve spent many years building is a momentous, life-changing event.
Whether you’ve made up your mind or are simply beginning to consider the idea, U.S. Legal Support should be on your list of people to talk to.
Over the past several years, we’ve acquired and integrated dozens of companies. That kind of track record doesn’t happen by accident. We’re experts at working with owners who are considering an exit, and collaborating with them to craft and implement a plan that works for them. We built our company this way, and we place immense value on building genuine partnerships with the management of the firms we acquire.
Selling your company can seem like jumping off a cliff. We work hard to make it more like being assisted out of a boat onto a solid, well-made dock. First of all, U.S. Legal Support’s management team are litigation support professionals themselves. The people buying your business know exactly how it works from real-life experience – whether as a professional reporter and business owner, a record retrieval professional, or in another facet of litigation support. They understand what’s important, and what makes a litigation support business flourish. We want to learn what’s important to you. It’s the right thing to do and it’s good business.
We also bring all the resources, technology and firepower of a big company to your operations. That includes one of the industry’s largest sales teams, unrivaled technical and back-office expertise, and cutting-edge technology, including the security of HIPAA and SOC 2 Type II compliance.
Many owners struggle with the fact that as their business grows, they have less and less time to spend on what they really enjoy – client contact, hands-on reporting, and/or operations – and find themselves spending more and more time working on their business rather than in it. Becoming part of U.S. Legal Support can change all that. Joining our team can free up an owner’s time to do what they really want to do.
If you own a business and are thinking about retirement or an exit, we’d like to get to know you. You’ve spent a long time building your company. You’ve been through the sleepless nights, the ups and downs, and everything that goes with that. When you decide it’s time to enjoy the rewards your dedication and effort should bring, we’d like to help and see if there’s a way to ensure that you, your employees, and clients are taken care of. We’d like to help continue your legacy. If that’s of interest, please contact us – we’d be delighted to hear from you.
I was so excited and reinvigorated by the energy and potential that U.S. Legal Support brought to the table that I decided to join the U.S. Legal team as well
I was initially planning on completely retiring from the business once we sold our company, however, as we were going through the sale process I was so excited and reinvigorated by the energy and potential that U.S. Legal Support brought to the table that I decided to join the U.S. Legal team as well. Our CEO, Charles [Schugart], and COO, Pete [Giammanco], have stood by everything they said they were going to do and they really made the transition seamless. In my time since joining U.S. Legal Support, we have seen the business continue to grow. Read More

When I finally came to the realization that it was time to sell my business, I took a careful look at my options. U.S. Legal Support was hands down the right fit for me.
Honestly, I’m working harder now than I was when I owned my own firm, if you can believe that. The difference is that now, instead of wearing multiple hats as a small business owner, I get to do what I enjoy most – interact with my clients. Leveraging the resources that U.S. Legal Support has provided me, our book of business has multiplied exponentially. So despite the fact that the work is challenging, I’m more dedicated and I’m having fun. Read More

I never really considered selling my business to anyone else other than U.S. Legal Support
My father started our firm back in 1962, and while I took time to finally commit, I never really considered selling my business to anyone else other than U.S. Legal Support. I knew they were the right group to partner with from the start with their additional service lines and personalized attention to every client. Initially, my plan was to remain with U.S. Legal Support for twelve months or so to see the transition through and to make sure my clients, court reporters, and employees were positioned well. That was four plus years ago, and I still love what I’m doing now more than ever. Read More
