Extract from Jennifer Bantelman's article "Navigating the Collections Conundrum"
Getting More Visibility into Collections Last time, I wrote about the right considerations when drafting or updating your standard litigation hold language and processes. Today I’m keeping along the same theme as we move to the next phase in your matters: Collection.
I don’t know about you, but for many legal professionals, collections have long been a very elusive black box of technology, specialists, and money. I think with the advent of new technologies and planning to go alongside them, we’re poised to usher in a really exciting time of more visibility, reduced cost, and just down right easier processes.
Preserve or Collect? First, I don’t think we can talk about collections without talking about preservations. We used to need to over-collect because frankly, in a lot of systems, collection was the only way to make sure the data didn’t get spoliated.
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!
