The move will create 20 jobs in the technology sector over the next three years.
The company says establishing a physical foothold in the European Union and employing local talent will see it "ideally positioned" to service and grow its portfolio of EMEA clients.
George Nedwick, George Jon’s CEO and founder, said: "The need for trained eDiscovery experts in international business is truly universal.
"As the industry continues to grow and evolve, so too will George Jon’s operational and client service capabilities.
"We are very excited to take this monumental step and establish a second home in Ireland, a nation that shares our passion for innovation and champions the enterprising spirit."
Tánaiste and Enterprise Minister Leo Varadkar said: "I am pleased that George Jon has chosen to establish its first overseas location in Dublin, with the creation of 20 jobs.
"We have a strong footprint of tech companies in Dublin and I am sure the city will act as an ideal base for the company to grow its client base across the EU."
And Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, added: "It is great news that George Jon is expanding operations through the establishment of their first international office in Dublin.
"This expansion will play an important role in the company’s global operations, and I wish George Jon every success and assure them of IDA Ireland’s continued support."
