Extract from George Socha’s article “eDiscovery Leaders Live featuring Andrew Kent of 4Discovery”
Andrew Kent, the Chief Operating Officer at 4Discovery, joins George Socha, Senior Vice President of Brand Awareness at Reveal, for ACEDS #eDiscoveryLeadersLive.
With almost twenty years of experience in eDiscovery and litigation, Andrew serves as the Chief Operating Officer at 4Discovery, a nationally recognized digital forensics and expert testimony services provider headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee that has various service offices across America. Along with the 4Discovery team, Andrew is setting out on a CLE initiative in 2023, titled the 50+1 Roadshow. It’s their goal to provide content to participants from all 50 states plus the District. Andrew is also a board member of Ink Against Cancer, a grassroots organization that brings artists of all media forms together to provide relief for individuals and families experiencing cancer.
Andrew shared how he got into law, eDiscovery, and forensics. He then expanded on forensics: what it is, where it currently fits in the world of litigation, where it should fit, and what it takes to survive and thrive in forensics. Andrew talked, as well, about the importance of culture and three key components to it: engagement, empowerment, and empathy. From there, he discussed their current roadshow and philanthropic initiatives they support. Andrew closed his discussion with a return to forensics, talking about how to best find and use forensics experts.
