Full disclosure, I’m the president of ACEDS, and we are committed to providing information to the legal community that is helpful. So, when Exterro approached ACEDS a few months back and asked us to help produce their State of E-Discovery report, we happily agreed and promised to share the results as well.
E-Discovery Work Continues To Move In-House The report, which is derived from a variety of industry sources, tells the continuing story of e-discovery work moving in-house to corporate legal operations professionals. Fifty percent of legal departments now feature an on-site e-discovery team. Of those, 60% now have dedicated IT services, a five-times increase over the year prior.
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.
