Recommendation for agencies well versed in IA?

Hi there, 

I am looking for recommendations for medium - large agencies that are IA ninjas. Currently in infancy, I have been tasked to research some medium to large agencies who are known for their IA skills.

The ultimate goal is to put together a budget to create the following deliverables:

1.  a sitemap of the current site (which is an ecommerce/lead-gen site) that is about 15,000 pages

2, a new sitemap of the future of our site

3. Wireframes and annotations for templated content

Persuading the Product Team that there is too much copy on the site


If anyone out there can help me or has come across a similiar situation..

I need a persuasive argument to back up my claim that there is too much copy on each page of the website (member system) we are putting together. The copywriter is literally explaining all the things that can be done on each page, which, if the navigation and buttons are clear enough, should be self-explanatory! The PD team are treating each page like a brochure, when in fact there is some pretty complex functionality per screen.
