"She is a true specialist in her field and one of our industry’s foremost experts in e-discovery, antitrust and regulatory investigations. Under immense pressure last year, Kathryn played an integral role in launching our segment’s Virtual Managed Review solution to enable continuity and peace of mind for our clients when their workforces became remote due to the pandemic. She embodies the ideals of excellence in innovation, so this award is well deserved."

Over the course of two decades, Ms. McCarthy has managed e-discovery responses for over 50 second requests.

"To me, this award represents a win for my entire team and a recognition of their commitment to excellence in collaboration, innovation and our practice overall," Ms. McCarthy said. "In male-dominated industries, women’s achievements often go underrecognized, so I’m grateful to see a spotlight shone on all of the innovative and inspiring women who are changing the dynamic in consulting and technology. Thank you to Consulting magazine for this honor and for lifting up women in our field."
