Matthew Davis has long been that rare thing, a litigation support lawyer in a law firm. Hogan Lovells has had the benefit of his expertise in this area for many years, but now he has moved out of private practice and to become Senior Director eDiscovery provider Consilio.
In this interview, Matthew Davis talks about the reasons why he was ready to make the change. Consilio has its own software solution, Global RPM, which is undergoing major changes aimed at easing the whole eDisclosure / eDiscovery process, not least in its interface with the lawyers at the review stage.
Consilio is not just a software provider, however. It has a strong consulting function in the UK, the US, mainland Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, and it is this which attracted Matthew Davis.
Matthew Davis goes on to draw attention to the opportunities within the eDiscovery industry for lawyers, and he encourages them to think beyond practice as a litigation lawyer. EDiscovery is a major component of all disputes, and companies like Consilio get involved in cases which are both complex and interesting. Matt is a good advocate for making the transfer from one side of the eDiscovery fence to the other.
