September 12, 2017 – Hire Counsel, a company of HCMC Legal, Inc., is pleased to partner with ACEDS (Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists), to offer our E-Discovery professionals a unique opportunity for further development and education.

Hire Counsel is a national leader in legal staffing and E-Discovery services since 1987. ACEDS is a member organization devoted to the professional interests of the global e-discovery community and offers related certification, conferences, training, events, news, and guidance.

The course is geared toward legal professionals who are interested in pursuing a full-time career in E-Discovery, preparing for the Certified E-Discovery Specialists (CEDS) exam, and earning relevant CLE credits (available in specific states). Hire Counsel’s offering is available to their qualified E-Discovery team members without an upfront cost.

“As experts in leveraging exceptional E-Discovery technology and top legal talent to deliver consistent, accurate, defensible results, we believe this new initiative will create mutual value,” said Joan Davison, CEO of HCMC. “We are committed to the success of our professionals and are strong advocates of continuing education, which we believe will lead to better job opportunities. By honing their skills, our professionals will have the edge in the E-Discovery job market. By partnering with a leading organization like ACEDS, we are confident our professionals will remain at the forefront of today’s best e-Discovery technology and strategies.”
