My Guest Post for Complete Legal: eDiscovery Best Practices

You might think that since I write a daily blog, I have no time to do any other writing on the side.  And, a lot of times, that’s true.  However, I wrote a guest blog post recently for our good friends and Kansas City partners at Complete Legal and so I’ve decided to point to that blog post for today to give our readers a chance to read that post.

The blog post is titled Leveraging Your Services Provider to Meet Today’s eDiscovery Challenges: eDiscovery Best Practices and it’s on Complete Legal’s site here.  We’ve been partners with Complete Legal for several years and have worked with co-founders Jeff Dreiling and Eric Kelting for several years before that.  In the post I noted that in this era of automation in eDiscovery, you might think that the need for eDiscovery services is dwindling, but nothing could be further from the truth – the need to partner with an experienced eDiscovery services provider to ensure a successful outcome to your case is more important than ever.

I covered several topics in the post, including some interesting statistics that illustrate that the demand for eDiscovery services is as strong as ever, why you need an eDiscovery provider, making sure you select a provider with the right experience, getting your eDiscovery “geek” involved early and often, working with your eDiscovery service provider as a partner (not as a vendor) and how familiarity breeds “content” – which is to say that developing a comfort level with the right vendor can be a beautiful partnership that lasts for years.  That’s something we can all appreciate!

Again, the post is here, so please check it out!  Consider it today’s post, just in a different place.  See what I did there?  Sneaky, huh?  :o)

So, what do you think?  How do you work with your eDiscovery services provider?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
