David Deppe draws on more than 20 years’ experience as a litigation services trailblazer to provide top-tier enterprise legal solutions for UnitedLex’s corporate clients and law firms.
After identifying legal services inefficiencies through his work at law firms, Dave founded his own legal discovery business well before eDiscovery existed. His business’s success continues to drive governmental agencies, top-50 national law firms, and Fortune 500 companies to seek his expert witness and 30(b)(6) testimony in civil litigation and matters involving federal agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, and Securities and Exchange Commission.
Dave has been with UnitedLex from its inception, joining shortly after selling his discovery services company to Mutual of Omaha. He built—from the ground up—UnitedLex’s Litigation & Regulatory Services and Compliance & Data Protection service lines and their associated technologies, infusing legal and regulatory requirements with practical solutions.
Having worked with the most influential law firms, corporate legal departments, and governmental agencies, Dave identifies, acquires, and nurtures the best talent for UnitedLex—establishing the company as the largest, organically grown legal services provider in the world. Today, he leads a global legal and cybersecurity workforce dedicated to providing best-in-class, client-driven enterprise legal services.
Ingram’s Magazine honored Dave in 2018 as one of the most powerful business leaders in Kansas City, and included him among its “40 Under Forty Class of 2015,” which recognizes leaders who demonstrate the highest levels of ethics and integrity, commitment to entrepreneurial thinking, and a clear record of business achievement.
Dave studied military science at the University of Nebraska, business at Nebraska Wesleyan University, and criminal justice administration at Bellevue University.
