Key Quotes by Lauren Roso

• “There is a lot of diversity in terms of how law firms are changing. There are some that are ready to move forward… while others just need to get to a number… but they are going to find that things are changing as well.”

• “Where the discovery legal department might have been a little bit separate, now we are seeing potentially working with other departments or bleeding into information governance – since of all the information in one way or another is connected for the corporation, to take away those barriers.”

• ‘[We are seeing] more ownership of the data from the corporate side…, the importance of privacy is making a shift to making more persons interested in their data.”

• “You have to really show they can trust you by giving guidance…by finding solutions but also putting up the right parameters, saying “no we can’t do this and here’s why”.
