The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) has once again appointed Crystal O’Donnell, the firm’s Founder and CEO, to its Global Advisory Council.


The EDRM empowers global leaders of eDiscovery and creates practical global resources to improve eDiscovery, privacy, security, and information governance.


Since 2005, EDRM has delivered leadership, standards, tools, guides, and test data-sets to strengthen best practices throughout the world.  It has an international presence in 113 countries, spanning 6 continents, and provides an innovative support infrastructure for individuals, law firms, corporations, and government organizations seeking to improve the practice and provision of data and legal discovery.


The non-governing EDRM global advisory council is composed of contributors, lawyers, judges, in-house counsel, and other legal professionals to help guide the organization’s ongoing projects and planning.


First appointed to the Council in 2021, Crystal is one of only four Canadians invited to serve on the 2021-2022 Global Advisory Council.  A full list of the Council can be found in the EDRM press release.
