WASHINGTON – June 30, 2022 – Chambers USA has recognized HaystackID, a specialized eDiscovery services firm supporting law firms and corporate legal departments, and two of its team members for their eDiscovery litigation expertise in its 2022 Chambers Litigation Support Guide.
Chambers notes, “They really help their clients to think about cyber as a program and build a program that is put in place to mitigate risk and help manage incidents when they come.” Chosen as one of only 19 U.S. eDiscovery litigation support providers recognized and ranked in the guide, the company received a Band 3 rating.
Chambers USA also recognized Vice President and General Counsel Ashish Prasad (Band 2) and Vice President of Forensics and Consulting Warren Kruse (Band 3) as top eDiscovery litigation support experts. Prasad and Kruse are two of only 12 U.S. professionals ranked in the guide as leading eDiscovery practitioners.
“Our firm is honored to be recognized by Chambers USA as a premier litigation support provider for the fourth consecutive year,” HaystackID CEO Hal Brooks said. “We also congratulate Ashish and Warren on this well-deserved recognition, which is a testament to their deep knowledge of the nuances of eDiscovery and their commitment to excellence in client service.”
Prasad said, “I am thrilled to have again received this coveted recognition from Chambers USA as a leading eDiscovery litigation support lawyer.” Prasad has been Chambers ranked for his expertise for the past five years. According to Chambers, a source stated, “Clients value him because he has that deep perspective of not only what tech can do, but as an attorney, what the lawyers need to resolve their problems. He brings that mixture of perspectives.”
“I am appreciative of this recognition and of the continued support from clients, partners and peers,” said Kruse, who has also been ranked by Chambers for five years. A source told Chambers, “If I call Warren, I know he is going to lead me in the right direction from a technical and investigatory perspective.”
Kruse added, “We look forward to continued company success as we broaden our cyber and legal discovery offerings.”
