While the COVID-19 pandemic may be causing some aspects of life to come to a standstill, the wheels of e-discovery continue to turn—albeit a little more slowly than they did before. To keep workflows running on schedule, e-discovery vendors may find themselves having to take a more hands-on approach in helping their homebound workers navigate an increasingly crowded information superhighway.
Wendy King, a senior managing director in the Discovery practice at FTI Consulting, referred to e-discovery professionals working remotely as “the last mile,” otherwise known as the final leg in the delivery of information. “We’re being mindful of the fact that things are going to take a little bit longer because of the fact that folks are going to have to work 100% remote now,” King said.
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.
