Craig Earnshaw on the Changes in E-discovery Over His Long Career

Craig Earnshaw has been working in FTI Consulting’s Technology segment for 10 years and had already spent ten years in the then-nascent e-discovery and Computer Forensics world before that. In this interview he talks about the changes which he has seen over that time, identifying three main changes. One is what he calls the "frequency of requirement" – the increasing need to look at data on a computer system for any disputes/investigations exercise. Second, he points to a rise in the number of lawyers who understand and practice in areas which require a knowledge of e-discovery practice. Third, Craig points to the range and diversity of companies delivering software and services to corporations and law firms.
