About Contoural

Contoural is the largest independent provider of strategic Information Governance consulting services, including Records and Information Management, Litigation Readiness and Control of Privacy and Sensitive Information. Contoural sells no products and serves as a trusted advisor for more than 30% of the Fortune 500, mid-sized organizations and public sector clients. Based in the heart of Silicon Valley in Los Altos, CA and with team members located all throughout the country, we provide a full suite of innovative and high-value consulting services to help our clients develop, launch and execute comprehensive Information Governance initiatives. As the largest independent provider in this space, we are growing. We have a seasoned, diverse consulting team with an average of more than 20 years of experience. We are passionate about our clients’ success.


Contoural does not sell any products, provide online or hardcopy document storage services, or provide “reactive,” lawsuit-specific eDiscovery services. Nor do we receive any referral fees on these types of products or services. When evaluating or developing an information governance strategy, our clients value the fact that we do not have a product agenda and we are not seeking to provide downstream eDiscovery services. They know they are getting truly independent advice, and work with us as trusted advisors. We are not an outsourcer, and our goal is to enable our clients to successfully manage information governance themselves after we leave.


Some clients only want help with some part of a specific project, and others want an entire end-to-end program. We are flexible, and can provide customized services to meet each client’s objectives. Furthermore, we can successfully build upon previous work completed at the client or leverage technology that is already in place.


We take a cross-functional approach in our engagements, incorporating a combination of legal, compliance, records management, information technology and change management principles and best practices. Equally important, we help our clients build a consensus across stakeholders from policy to execution.


Our team is composed of highly-experienced professionals, including attorneys, compliance officers, records managers, information technology professionals and change management experts and organizational development, with an average of fifteen years of experience in their specific field. Many of our consultants previously held positions at corporations and law firms, and include litigators, compliance officers and CIOs across many different industries. We typically approach an engagement with fewer, more experienced team members as this is a more efficient and cost-effective approach.


We have been successful in becoming the largest independent provider of information governance services, eclipsing older and more established providers. Our formula for success is simple: provide real value and do what it takes to make our clients successful. Making our current clients successful will lead us to new clients. This is a cornerstone of our corporate culture.


We are committed to creating and maintaining a work environment that values and fosters diversity, bringing in a variety of experiences and perspectives in our company. By recruiting, retaining and developing a diverse work force, we are able to meet the needs of our clients and to create opportunities for all of us.
