Extract from Doug Austin's article "Just in Time for the Holidays! Norton Rose Fulbright’s 2019 Litigation Trends Survey: eDiscovery Trends"
Hard to believe it’s the fifteenth edition, but here it is: Norton Rose Fulbright’s 2019 Litigation Trends Annual Survey. We’ve covered it a few times over the years, but I don’t remember it ever being released this close to the holidays. Nonetheless, the survey, as always, had some interesting findings. Let’s take a look.
287 corporate counsel participated in the survey, all respondents were US-based or represent US-based organizations. The breakdown was as follows: General Counsel 39 percent, Head of Litigation 19 percent, Associate/Deputy/Assistant GC 27 percent, Other 16 percent.
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.
Andrew Bayer, CEDS
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.
