Disco announced this week plans to move its corporate headquarters to Austin from Houston.

The company, which makes software for the legal industry, cited Austin’s talent pool, the city’s top universities and the overall technology community as reasons to relocate. Its new headquarters are located at 3700 North Capital of Texas Highway.

Disco currently has more than 200 employees including 70 in Austin, according to a spokeswoman. The company plans to relocate 50 employees from Houston to Austin and plans to create up to 150 new jobs in Austin in the next two to three years, she said. The jobs will be in engineering, product management, services, sales, marketing, and finance.

“DISCO has been a part of the local Austin community since its founding, and we are excited to officially relocate our corporate headquarters to the Texas capital,” Kiwi Camara, DISCO founder and chief executive officer said in a news release. “There is no place like Austin in terms of the energy, culture, spirit of innovation and overall talent. Our enhanced Austin presence will invigorate our product development, commitment to service, and overall customer satisfaction.”

“The relocation of DISCO to Austin will help further accelerate the tremendous growth the company has demonstrated in the past five years,” Krishna Srinivasan, partner and co-founder of LiveOak Venture Partners and member of DISCO’s board of directors, said in a news release. “Not only is DISCO a game changer and leader in legal technology, but is it also a disruptor in the broader technology industry – its move to Austin will add local talent and energize the rapidly growing software ecosystem.”

Disco makes electronic discovery solutions for law firms, corporations, and government agencies.

In January, Disco announced it had received $20 million in Series B financing with Bessemer Venture Partners leading the round, with participation from LiveOak Venture Partners and The Stephens Group. To date, the company has raised $50 million.
