PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - December 06, 2016) - Zapproved Inc., a pioneer in developing cloud-based software for corporate legal departments, today announced that it has launched the "I Solve E-Discovery" (#ISolveEdiscovery) movement to galvanize the community of in-house experts who are solving the complicated challenges of e-discovery.
"Corporate e-discovery is going through a transformation as leading companies are taking more and more responsibility rather than outsourcing these critical tasks," commented Brad Harris, VP of Product Strategy, Zapproved. "The 'I Solve E-Discovery' movement is a way for the corporate e-discovery community to join together to share ideas and find inspiration from peers across the country from Fortune 100s to organizations of any size that are advancing the practice of corporate e-discovery."
To get involved, e-discovery professionals can visit the #ISolveEdiscovery website to engage, learn and share their expertise with the community. For example, they can read the manifesto, take #ISolveEdiscovery challenges to earn rewards, and spark excitement for others to join the movement.
E-discovery professionals can also nominate a peer for consideration by December 23, 2016, for recognition at the Corporate E-Discovery Hero Awards Celebration presented by Zapproved, preceding Legaltech New York. Nominees should be an e-discovery expert or in-house legal professional who has demonstrated excellence in:
