L.A. Foothold Part of Ambitious Coast-to-Coast Expansion

HOUSTON, February 21 – Datacert, Inc., the premier global provider of enterprise legal management solutions, announced today the opening of a new office in the Los Angeles area, which will serve the West Coast, where the company already has an established client base. Strong demand for Passport®, Datacert’s patent-pending technology platform, from the area’s high-tech companies drove Datacert to increase its presence in the region.

The office is staffed with seasoned legal technology experts targeted and recently acquired by Datacert specifically to focus on the region’s tech savvy customer base. These resources will support the company's existing West Coast client base and develop new opportunities.

"This is an investment in an area known for its innovation," said Bobby Jahanbani, director of North American sales, Datacert. "Planting roots here provides Datacert greater opportunities to introduce and implement cutting edge legal technology services to the world’s leading innovative companies."

This office marks an expansion of Datacert’s global footprint, now with 10 offices worldwide in Europe, Asia, and North America, including four in the U.S.

"As an innovative technology company ourselves, we recognize the value of being in the high-tech center of America to better serve this market," said Jim Tallman, president and CEO, Datacert. "We’ve assembled top talent and built a solid West Coast core team to underscore our commitment to this region."

Jahanbani will drive West Coast sales out of the new office where he, Rich Levy, vice president of new product development, and Shaheen Javadizadeh, vice president of strategic markets, will lead a staff of dedicated product management, sales, professional services, and engineering professionals.

The offices are located in the park-like setting of the Yahoo! Center at 2500 Broadway, Building F, Suite F-125, Santa Monica, CA 90404. The main number is 424-238-4434.

Yahoo! Center consists of six state-of-the-art low- and mid-rise office buildings spread out over 15 acres of lush landscaping. It is centrally located in the heart of the Media District, just north of the Santa Monica Freeway and a mile west of the San Diego Freeway. The million square feet of office space provides 24-hour security and houses such companies as Yahoo!, Apple, CBS Broadcasting, Advanstar, and Colony Capital.
