Managing Corporate eDiscovery During a Pandemic

Since March, most corporate counsel and discovery response teams have been working remotely. The global pandemic may have paused or slowed many civil courts, regulators and auditors, but not all.

The Big Four – Auditors or Consultants?

The New eDiscovery Journal Needs Your Perspective
