I recently published an interview with Mary Mack and Kaylee Walstad, the new owners of EDRM (the Electronic Discovery Reference Model). They had taken over EDRM only days before, and it was clear that they had plans to make EDRM a significant force in eDiscovery.
This week EDRM announced the formation of its 2020 global advisory council, chaired by Robert Keeling, partner at Sidley Austin. EDRM founders George Socha and Tom Gelbmann have roles as founder advisers. David Greetham of Ricoh USA is executive advisor and Craig Ball will serve as general counsel.
The list of members of the advisory council shows that EDRM is reaching widely and deeply into the eDiscovery world for collaboration and support (I should add diffidently that my name isn’t there because I was slow to reply to and accept EDRM’s kind invitation – a complete list will be published shortly).
I agree with Craig Ball, who said “I look forward to seeing the EDRM reclaim its place as the most well-informed, trusted source for practical guidance in the field of electronic evidence.”
I too look forward to being involved in this initiative.
