The main eDiscovery event during my absence was the merger between HaystackID and NightOwl Global to produce what they not unreasonably describe as “a comprehensive and complete set of data and legal discovery services for legal departments and law firms across the globe”.
I have done several interviews with people from NightOwl Global over the years, uncovering in the process a depth of knowledge which has made for informative interviews – my ambition in doing these interviews is not simply to promote the interviewees and their companies, but to add something to lawyers’ understanding of the processes undertaken for them by eDiscovery companies like NightOwl Global. NightOwl’s people do their explanations very well.
This may seem an incidental point but I have also come across some really agreeable people. This matters when you do an interview – the result is always better if you actually like the person being interviewed.
There is a press release here which needs no gloss from me. I wish every success to the merged businesses.
