eDiscovery news on the newswire: Michael Quartararo launches eDPM Advisory Services
eDPM Advisory Services announces the launch of a modern consulting and management company dedicated to meeting emerging legal technology and support services needs in law firms, corporate legal departments and service provider organizations. eDPM Advisory provides expert professional services and guidance, project management and process improvement services and training and technology assessments centered around e-discovery, project management and legal technology solutions.
eDPM Advisory comes at a pivotal time in the industry as educational and training needs are overwhelming. Market compression and the desire for increased efficiency are driving buying decisions. Law firms, corporations and service providers need consistent processes to manage the scope, cost and risk of e-discovery projects and the implementation of project management protocols and advanced technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence.
“While traveling the U.S. promoting my book Project Management in Electronic Discovery, I learned that many law firms and corporate legal departments have a desire to improve their e-discovery and project management processes. I saw the need, and eDPM Advisory Services, long a dream of mine, is now a reality. I look forward to serving the legal community,” says Mike Quartararo, founder and managing director of eDPM Advisory Services.
Quartararo continues, “Any organization doing business in our global, information-driven economy has the obligation of strategically planning for – and executing on – sound, defensible processes with contemporary legal project management principles. The commitment and promise of eDPM Advisory Services are to help organizations implement appropriate cost and risk controls, as well as time-tested processes and tools to manage e-discovery and information governance.”
eDPM Advisory Services will leverage its strategic partnerships, relationships and affiliations with the most well-known software and service providers in the industry for clients.
The primary focus of the firm will be:
• Project-based or case-related advisory services
• Department or enterprise wide project management and process improvement services
• Training in and assessment for project management maturity and evaluation and implementation of technology tools and resources
