E-discovery may have just exited a particularly tumultuous year, but the industry has wasted little time turning the page to 2021. On Wednesday, the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) hosted a virtual panel titled “Preparing for the Corporate eDiscovery Realities of 2021,” where the guests examined both how their work had been changed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges that lay ahead.

For instance, one of the more challenging aspects of 2020 is that e-discovery professionals, attorneys and most of the working public at large were forced to conduct business from home. While videoconferencing tech may have plugged some of the resulting communications gaps, handling the massive volumes of data that often accompanies e-discovery work on the limited bandwidth of a home Wi-Fi network can be problematic.
