EMSI Ceases Operations, Including Records Retrieval Services, Amidst COVID-19 Crisis

Today brings an unexpected turn of events in the Records Retrieval Services industry.  EMSI revealed its decision to shut down, leaving many in shock. The ongoing challenges and disruptions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic seem to be at the forefront of this major business decision.

“COVID-19 has disrupted families, communities and businesses in our country and around the world. EMSI has become a casualty of these unprecedented times, as the pandemic has severely depressed service volumes. As a result, all company operations ceased on Friday, July 3, 2020.”


EMSI, boasting a strong workforce of around 5,000 employees and reporting annual revenues surpassing $180 million (as indicated by a Dun & Bradstreet profile), was undeniably a key player in the industry. They served numerous Law Firms, Insurance Companies, and related stakeholders both in the Dallas Fort Worth area and nationally. Their abrupt closure will undeniably cause ripples in the retrieval procedures for countless Attorneys, Paralegals, Adjusters, Underwriters, and many more.

If your retrieval operations have been impacted by EMSI’s cessation, we extend an invitation to you.
