April 18, 2022 – Minneapolis, MN – Setting the global standards for e-discovery, the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) is pleased to announce Cobra Legal Solutions, a leading legal operations outsourcing provider (LOOP), has joined EDRM as a Guardian Plus Trusted Partner.
eDiscovery technology and services will play a central role in organizations as they strive to rebound from the current global crisis as more cohesive, more stable and more productive entities. Robust e-discovery technology, supported by expertise and services, helps organizations respond to litigation, compliance and investigation demands.
