COVID-19 related layoffs have started trickling into the e-discovery industry. Last Friday, Austin Inno reported that DISCO had made cutbacks to its workforce. A DISCO spokesperson confirmed to Legaltech News that downsizing had occurred, but did not specify the number of layoffs made.
“Due to the coronavirus and the economic uncertainty facing the nation and the world, DISCO felt it was important to make difficult decisions and implement changes up front to proactively address and reduce potential risk,” the spokesperson told LTN. “The decision to reduce our workforce was made solely to offset a potential downturn in business due to the coronavirus crisis. We remain confident in our business strategy and our plans for ongoing product and service innovation, customer acquisition and long-term growth. Business will continue as usual, and customers will see no disruption to service due to internal changes.”
