“As legal teams are increasingly challenged to get control of data in our evolving digital world, Nextpoint continues to evolve our products and services to respond to modern ediscovery burdens, from how to handle growing data volumes, to new forms of electronic information, to addressing evolving data privacy regulatory demands. Our new partnership with EDRM gives us the exciting opportunity to connect with legal technology professionals interested in staying up to date on the latest ediscovery solutions, using our foundation of software, services and educational resources.”
