Press Releases

Are you aware that 53 million Americans—that’s 34 percent of the U.S. workforce—are working on contract? Electronic discovery is not immune from this trend. In fact, e-discovery is aggressively moving toward an increased adoption of contract staffing augmentation around the globe.

As a 2016 and 2017 National Sponsor of WiE, we at TRU want you to be aware of the top trends in e-discovery and cybersecurity. The shift to contract staffing for e-discovery project managers, analysts, forensic examiners and more has impacted the market dynamically over the last several years. TRU’s founder and CEO, Jared Coseglia, has written a three-part series published in Legaltech News that is the blueprint for why, when and how the Contract Staffing Revolution can and will have an effect on your company and career. All articles are available for public consumption below.

    TRU Tips

    The U.S.’s state-by-state privacy regulation approach is creating jobs—and inefficiency.

    TOP 3 Unforeseen Effects Of Increased State (Rather Than Federal) Privacy Regulation On The Privacy Job Market
    • Outside counsel will hyperextend their Data Privacy practice hiring to service the needs of corporations who cannot or do not want to keep up with privacy regulations in-house.
    • Contract staffing for privacy lawyers will balloon until federal legislation levels the playing field.
    • If and when Federal legislation does pass, the need for privacy pros may decrease due to the growing inflation of demand corporations face to stay compliant in all fifty states as well as abroad.

    TRU Tips

    Contract opportunities will surge in November and December as FTEs take vacation or maternity/paternity and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) comes into effect!

    TOP 3 Busiest Times for Contract Opportunities
    • Landmark legislation: When big law (CCPA, GDPR, FRCP) comes closer to taking effect, companies bolster their teams with contractors to prepare and catch up.
    • Leave: Whether it’s extended vacation or celebrating the birth of a new family member, when full time employees take time off, hiring managers augment with temporary resources.
    • Large Projects: When big cases demand bigger and potentially more sophisticated teams, contractors become the solution to fill the talent gaps.
