Hiring Top Talent in eDiscovery – Three Things to Look For

Published Tue, December 06, 2016 by Joanna Harrison

Let’s be honest, someone with a degree in ediscovery on their resume would be more intriguing prospective addition to your team than someone with a technology or law degree. “Why,” you ask?
