LECG Expects to Transition Certain European Practice Groups to FTI

DEVON, PA--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) - Professional services firm LECG Corporation (NASDAQ: XPRT) announced today that it expects to sell its European economics consulting, forensic accounting and tax practice groups to FTI Consulting, Inc.

With the advice of its restructuring advisors, LECG continues to negotiate the transition of all practice groups remaining after transactions disclosed in previous public communications. LECG will use the proceeds from all practice group transitions to repay the principal outstanding under its credit facility. The company will use the balance of any proceeds to make payments to other creditors. Contractually, if there is any remaining value available to equity holders, it would be first allocated to the company's outstanding preferred stock. The company believes that the transitions and these transactions will not result in any proceeds for the common shareholders.
