April 14, 2020– EAGAN, Minn. – The Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), the world’s leading e-discovery training and certification professional association and part of The BARBRI Group, is pleased to announce that Everlaw, a cloud-native e-discovery solution that unlocks the collaborative power of teams, has renewed as an ACEDS Affiliate Partner.
As the digital universe expands rapidly, litigators and internal investigators are tasked with mining through mountains of data – the majority of which end up being irrelevant. Everlaw is a collaborative, cloud-based litigation platform that uses artificial intelligence to help legal teams uncover the needle-in-a-haystack pieces of information that can make or break a case.
Through this partnership, employees and partners of Everlaw can access ACEDS’ breadth of job tools and networking forums, a global chapter network and events, and a best-practice-oriented worldwide community of professionals. As an ACEDS Affiliate Partner, Everlaw plays an important role in the global ACEDS community, leveraging and contributing to the community’s collective knowledge and expertise, and the association’s education, marketing, training and professional development resources.
“When it comes to intuitive, highly functional cloud-based solutions in e-discovery, Everlaw entered the race fast and early and now they are a leader in the space. I’ve been both a customer and a fan for years,” said Mike Quartararo, CEDS, president, ACEDS and professional development. “ACEDS is thrilled to call Everlaw a partner and grateful to the entire Everlaw team for their contributions to the e-discovery community and our members specifically.”
“Ediscovery is a new imperative for legal teams today as they sift through troves of documents to build their cases,” said AJ Shankar, Everlaw’s CEO and co-founder. “Team collaboration is a key part of this process, and it’s equally important to collaborate with members of the industry. We’re thrilled to continue this partnership and remain a part of ACEDS’s community of ediscovery leaders and visionaries.”
