Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP Represents EVD, Inc. (dba Evolve Discovery) in its Sale to UBIC, Inc.

Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP (JMBM) is pleased to have represented its San Francisco-based client, EVD, Inc. (dba Evolve Discovery) in its sale to UBIC, Inc. (Nasdaq: UBIC).

JMBM partner L. Randolph (Randy) Harris led the deal team, which also included Matthew (Matt) Kenefick , all of whom are resident in the firm’s San Francisco office.

“Randy, Matt and JMBM exceeded my expectations in the most significant business event of my career. They were careful to provide virtually all the available options and implications of our requests and compromises. In a very stressful situation, they were a beacon of confidence,” said Andy Jimenez, CEO of EVD Inc. (dba Evolve Discovery, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UBIC. Inc.). “Most importantly, they vociferously fought for shareholder interests, and the interests of our employees. They are fair, wise, efficient and epitomize professionalism. Excellent advocacy, and within budget – I couldn’t have asked for anything else from JMBM.”

Other deals recently completed by the JMBM team include the sale of Right Away Redy Mix to U.S. Concrete Company, the sale of assets on behalf of Waterfront Container Leasing Co. Ltd., and for a European bank, the establishment of a line of credit facility and sale of assets at the end of the lease to the lessee.
