Extract from David Kinnear's "In the #Spotlight: David Barrett CEO of QDiscovery Speaks with High Performance Counsel"
Some subscribe to a “fake it ’til you make it” philosophy. David Barrett (Dave) isn’t one of them. It’s one of many reasons why I found our conversation at Legal Week so enjoyable – an intimate one-on-one chat with the CEO of QDiscovery who presents such a grounded view of both their past and their unmistakably exciting future.
As many of you will know by now, we get to sit down and chat with some of the best leadership in the modern legal industry so, it’s fair to say, we’ve seen a thing or two. We can smell authenticity a mile away – and we can smell fake a hundred miles away. Go figure. It’s not hard.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
Kevin Glass, CEO
As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
