eDiscovery Trends: Announcing Second Annual LTNY Thought Leader Series!


In our efforts to continue to bring our readers perspectives from various thought leaders throughout the eDiscovery community, eDiscoveryDaily has published several thought leader interviews over the nearly 1 1/2 years since our inception.  Last year at LegalTech New York (LTNY), we were able to conduct interviews with several eDiscovery industry thought leaders and announced the schedule for those interviews after the show.  Click here to see the schedule for last year’s interviews with links to each interview we conducted.

It appears that the LTNY Thought Leader interviews have become a tradition, as we were able to conduct interviews again with several industry thought leaders!  We’re pleased to introduce the schedule for the series, which will begin next Wednesday, February 15.  Something to look forward to after Valentine’s Day!
