Extract from Casey Sullivan's article "How the Pandemic Is Impacting Litigation Demand"
This post contains highlights from a recent webinar Logikcull hosted with the Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists on the impacts of an economic recession on litigation demand and practice. Stay tuned for part two of the recap, in which we highlight advice and insights from our esteemed panelists, Bruce MacEwen, President of Adam Smith Esq., Eli Wald, Charles W. Delaney Jr. Professor of Law, University of Denver Sturm College of Law, and Robert Hilson, Vice President of Marketing at Logikcull.
We are in, as they say (over and over and over again), uncertain times. We are facing a health crisis on a scale that few people alive today have experienced before, and a resulting economic crisis whose initial impacts are closer to the Great Depression than the 2008 financial crisis or the Dot Com bust.
But what does that mean for the law and for litigation specifically?
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!

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.
