E-Discovery Consulting Jobs: As an Electronic Discovery Consultant, you can gain a wider exposure to various working environments, case matters, technology tools and situational nuances otherwise beyond your e-discovery career reach in a typical vendor or law firm environment where the required duties and responsibilities are typically more predictable and compartmentalized. With a career as an e-discovery consultant, usually you will be utilized in the capacity of augmenting the company's or firm's existing staff, working alongside their IT department, and appointed counsel.
While there, you will be perceived as the subject matter expert by both the client and the courts. E-discovery consulting job opportunities are available through Electronic Discovery consulting companies, accounting firms, outsourcing providers, and staffing agencies, such as LTS. With the right influence, you can find independent consulting work on your own, although the predictability and regularity of work tends to be unstable, and future work is never guaranteed.
If you are not interested in pursuing a management career path, have climbed the ladder as high as you feasibly can with your current employer, or are simply looking for a new challenge in a different environment, Electronic Discovery Consulting can be an exciting new career path and offer valuable learning experiences.
