WASHINGTON – March 7, 2022 – HaystackID, a specialized eDiscovery services firm supporting law firms and corporate legal departments, announces the addition of Christopher Wall who joins the company as Special Counsel for Global Privacy & Forensics on the Client Services team. Wall, who will also serve as the company’s internal Data Protection Officer, most recently led cross-border cybersecurity, forensics, structured data, and traditional discovery investigations at Ernst & Young.
“Chris has demonstrated dedication to understanding client objectives, creating innovative solutions, and ultimately reducing client risk and legal spend,” said HaystackID President Andrea Wallack. “His expertise with data privacy and cross-border data transfer issues arising from litigation and investigations will be of significant value to our company and clients.”
HaystackID CEO Hal Brooks adds, “With more than two decades of experience, Chris will be an excellent resource for our clients as they navigate the complex landscape of data breach discovery and response.”
After starting his legal career as an attorney in the antitrust practices at Skadden and McDermott, Wall spent more than a decade at Kroll in its Legal Technologies Division and at Navigant Consulting in its Litigation Technology practice. With over 20 years of experience consulting, advising, and educating clients at all levels on internal and regulatory investigations and legal and reputational risk mitigation, Wall will help HaystackID clients navigate the cross-border privacy and data protection landscape and advise them on technical privacy and data protection issues associated with cyber investigations, data analytics, and discovery.
“Having spent the majority of my career helping in-house and outside counsel to navigate the ever-evolving legal technology space, including efficient practices surrounding cross-border discovery and data protection, I am thrilled to continue this work at HaystackID,” said Wall.
As I said, the full press release is available via the link above. Given the increased need for data privacy and cyber protection, the announcement of HaystackID expanding Its cross-border privacy and cyber breach team with the addition of a key industry veteran makes sense!
