Huron Legal has been on a serious recruiting drive in the US, adding a number of heavyweight players to its teams advising lawyers on information governance and eDiscovery.
As I was walking round the exhibitor floor at LegalTech, I was pleased to bump into Ronke Ekwensi on the Huron booth. I knew Ronke when she was VP of eDiscovery and Records and Information Management at Pfizer, when I did a couple of panels with her. On one occasion, a US judge was taken ill just before the performance of one of my short eDiscovery plays and I needed a substitute in a hurry. You don’t choose just anyone to fill the place of a Federal judge; I thrust the script into Ronke’s hands and asked her if she would take on the role – which she did, with appropriate gravitas.
Bob Rowe, Executive Vice President of Huron Legal, said:
As the regulatory environment continues to become more complex, flawless information management is essential for law departments and law firms to effectively manage compliance and risk mitigation issues. Ronke’s background in information governance and e-discovery will greatly benefit our clients in selecting the most efficient ways to manage, store, produce and leverage information while reducing costs and mitigating risk.
This is a great appointment for Huron Legal and an exciting place for Ronke Ekwensi to be as Huron builds up its strong new team.
There is a press release about this appointment here.
