February 1, 2021– EAGAN, Minn. – The Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), the world’s leading organization specializing in e-discovery training and certification and part of The BARBRI Group, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Nuix, an innovative global software provider.

Nuix specializes in transforming massive amounts of data into actionable intelligence. With Nuix’s investigative analytics and intelligence software, customers can understand the context and connections across billions of items in the data, and find the truth it holds.

Nuix and ACEDS partnered over the last year to provide foundational e-discovery training to Nuix employees and clients globally as part of Nuix’s Data Discovery Master program. Nuix and ACEDS have now expanded the relationship to build on ACEDS’ breadth of resources, networking forums and events, a global chapter network, and a best practice-oriented worldwide community of legal and e-discovery professionals. Nuix will play an important role in the e-discovery community, contributing to ACEDS collective knowledge and expertise, offering educational presentations, and delivering world-class content to our members.

“Nuix Learning & Development desires to push the envelope with our training programs and constantly strives to offer a “gold standard” approach to e-discovery training,” said Nuix’s Head of Learning and Development Annie Oman. “Partnering with ACEDS has rocket-launched these efforts. Being able to pair their world-class eDiscovery Executive Certificate Program with our Nuix Data Discovery Master program gives our customers a powerful one-two punch for their career development and offers firms, corporates, and agencies the opportunity to recruit the best talent.”

“This is the natural next step in our successful partnership with Nuix,” said Maribel Rivera, Senior Director of Community Relations at ACEDS. “We are excited that, through our expanded partnership with Nuix, not only will the eDiscovery Executive Certificate program reach more organizations around the world and help them solve their e-discovery training challenges but Nuix will help to add to our expansive library of thought leadership and educational resources available to ACEDS members.” “Nuix and ACEDS have a shared passion for the success of e-discovery teams globally, so we are excited about the expansion of this partnership,” said JR Jenkins, Nuix Head of Marketing. “Given the challenges of the post-COVID virtual workforce, we believe that ACEDS training and certification programs, paired with Nuix e-discovery solutions, will better prepare e-discovery professionals to innovate and collaborate in this changed professional realm.”

ACEDS and Nuix celebrate the expansion of the partnership this week during Legalweek(year) with a social event on Tuesday, February 2, 2021. The social will include trivia and a mixology presentation by Johnny Goodtimes.
