Chambers and Partners, the internationally renowned legal rankings firm, has given Driven, Inc. top billing in its annual rankings for eDiscovery (litigation support) firms in the U.S. Widely recognized as the “legal industry’s most prestigious rankings,” Chambers placed Driven in “Band Three”.
“We are very pleased to see Chambers continues to recognize the value that Driven offers clients,” explained Ozzy Jiménez, who serves as CEO for Driven. “Driven has worked hard to develop a reliable and trusted brand that lawyers and companies can rely on for their eDiscovery and information governance needs.”
Chambers, which released its 2020 rankings last week, moved Driven into “Band 3” from “Band 4,” where Chambers had placed Driven in 2019. Driven was the only ranked eDiscovery provider from 2019 that Chambers rated higher in its 2020 rankings. Chambers rated 19 companies in total in its 2020 litigation support rankings for eDiscovery firms.
“Driven’s movement in the Chambers eDiscovery rankings is a significant development,” according to Wynter Grant, Driven’s Chief Revenue Officer. “While we have always maintained that Driven provides best in the industry service for our clients, it is gratifying to see a reputable rankings company like Chambers recognize this as well.”
In addition to ranking individual eDiscovery firms, Chambers also rated lawyers and other “notable practitioners” working at those firms. Among only nine ranked practitioners, Chambers placed two Driven consultants, Tara Emory and Philip Favro in “Band 2” of its three-tier system of rankings. Driven was the only provider with two “notable practitioners” in the nine ranked individuals, which reflects Driven’s elite consultancy.
“I was delighted to learn that Chambers had placed two of our consultants into its ‘notable practitioner’ rankings,” observed Jiménez. “Of course, Driven feels that its entire consulting group should be included in the eDiscovery rankings.” In addition to Emory and Favro, Driven’s consulting team also includes nationally-recognized practitioners Eric Mandel and Jonathan Swerdloff.
Emory, who leads Driven’s consulting practice group, had a similar view. “Driven’s consultants are a well-rounded group with nearly eight decades of practical and practice expertise across the spectrum of litigation and electronic discovery.” Like Driven itself, Emory was the only ranked practitioner from 2019 that Chambers rated higher in its 2020 rankings.
