How can eDiscovery be better?
This critical question has occupied the vast majority of the Baker Donelson eDiscovery Team’s time and attention for many years.
EDiscovery requires the careful coordination of the substantive law firm, the client’s Information Technology (IT) resources, and the necessary outside service providers that provide technology and staffing support. To make eDiscovery “better” requires the close coordination of these participants, much the same as a construction project requires careful planning and excellent execution.
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.
