The article published in Bloomberg BNA: Digital Discovery & e-Evidence takes a look at the history and growth in sophistication of software platforms catering to the legal markets. The first challenge for these platforms was to accommodate large cases involving high volumes of electronically stored information (ESI), which left a vacuum of attention to the small to medium size firms with their bread and butter small cases. SaaS providers are now building solutions designed to address small cases but the simplicity in their approach still leaves these firms with less sophisticated solutions than required. The article explains how technology is addressing these issues, describes what to look for in an eDiscovery SaaS provider, and I give my prediction on what will happen over the next five years.
Rick started in the legal industry in 2002 working for a litigation support company where he began consulting with law firms on paper and electronic discovery. As eDiscovery began to grow, his path took him to deploying software in data processing and forensics. In 2006, he became a co-founder of Wave Software for high volume unstructured data culling for a more streamlined review. The company quickly grew in the emerging eDiscovery market and as a result, he co-founded The Masters Conference to bring thought leaders together for education on the evolving best legal practices. In 2012, he began working in the complex data/document review with iCONECT and began to consult with corporations, the federal government and law firms in complex review. Rick joined TCDI in 2014.
Rick has a Communications degree in Journalism from Liberty University.
