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.
