The Train is Leaving

The Train is Leaving the Station!: eDiscovery Best Practices

In my latest guest post for Avansic, I talk about how the train is leaving the station in terms of change in eDiscovery. Better make sure you’re on it!

As I discuss in the post (The Train is Leaving the Station! Are You on It?, available here), today’s challenges are forcing change for legal professionals, and those who don’t respond may feel like they failed to get on the train that is leaving the station.

The last time we were forced into significant change in how we do things was when the pandemic hit. We were all forced into remote work and using web conferencing apps like Zoom to continue to meet with colleagues and clients. While some of us were already using these apps, many professionals weren’t using them before the pandemic. To paraphrase William Shakespeare, change was “thrust upon us,” and (one notable “cat lawyer” aside) we learned to adjust to it.


Well, as Yogi Berra would say, we’re experiencing “déjà vu all over again” with regard to forced change. It may be more subtle this time, but we’re seeing external forces that are requiring legal professionals to change.

So, what are those external forces? What types of firms aren’t embracing technology? And how easy is it to do so? I discuss all of that in the blog post here. It’s just one more click – even to a post I wrote! 😉
