EDRM Announces New Global Advisory Council Leaders 2023 

MINNEAPOLIS, May 5, 2023 – Setting the global standards for e-discovery, the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) is pleased to announce additions to its 2023 Global Advisory Council. Robert Keeling, partner at Sidley Austin LLP, chairs the council.

Privacy and security enabled eDiscovery technology and services will play a central role in organizations as they incorporate AI into their every product and process. Robust e-discovery technology, supported by expertise and services, helps organizations respond to litigation, compliance regulatory and investigation demands. In a new era of remote work at scale, organizations need to securely manage information, protect confidential and privileged access and collaborate effectively to be efficient and productive and adhere to the increasing complex demands of security, compliance and data privacy frameworks.

EDRM serves as the exemplar for eDiscovery best practices. As such, I am honored to become a member of the Advisory Council and will do my part to contribute to the global industry’s continued growth and standards of excellence.

Greg Mazares, executive chairman, ModeOne

With these additions, the EDRM Advisory Council consists of an incredibly diverse range of thought leaders in e-discovery.”

Please join us in welcoming the wise contributions of our new Advisory Council members:  Greg Mazares, executive chairman, ModeOne and Sadie Khodorkovsky, global head of legal discovery at JPMorgan Chase & Co.
