Extract from Clare Chalkley and Jeff Davis' article "Weighing Your E-Discovery Resource Options: Best-in-Breed or All-in-One?"
What is the best approach to resourcing a dispute or investigation which involves the collection, analysis, review and production of electronic data? Decisions about e-discovery resources can be as complex as the litigations themselves. For example, you may require the global reach of a larger “end-to-end” or “all-in-one” provider to collect data in multiple jurisdictions. Or there may be a population of audio files to be processed for analysis which requires “best-in-breed” specialist software. And perhaps neither of those providers may have the skills to handle varied requirements for document review projects.
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.
