While we continue learning about various aspects of the virus and grappling with the resulting “new normal,” the e-discovery industry has an opportunity to strengthen its diversity and inclusion objectives and ensure they remain a strategic business priority.
Recent business disruptions underscore that law firms, legal departments and e-discovery service providers need top-performing talent in order to recover—and successfully move beyond—current circumstances into a future ripe with unimaginable possibilities.
