Venio Systems to Introduce New Team Member and VenioOne Innovations During Legalweek New York

Charles Lavallée, an 18-year eDiscovery veteran, joins Venio Systems as Vice President of Business Development

Venio Systems, a worldwide leader in unified eDiscovery and litigation support software, is excited to introduce a new team member, Charles Lavallée. The 18-year eDiscovery technology veteran joined the company’s growing team as Vice President of Business Development. His responsibilities include helping organizations evaluate their solutions, workflows, and processes and partnering with them to leverage Venio’s unified platform for better decision making, greater efficiency, and cost savings.

Lavallée has worked with law firms, corporations, consultancies, legal service providers, and government agencies around the world. He will work closely with the Venio Development, Marketing and Sales teams to provide clients and partners a more agile and adaptable solution for today’s discovery and global business needs.

Before joining Venio Systems, Lavallée worked with other notable and emerging discovery technology companies. From startups to Fortune 500 companies, he has always evangelized better technology and processes for his clients. A true international man, he has spent significant time throughout his career introducing new ediscovery technologies to the UK, EU and Canada as well as the Asia Pacific region.

“We are excited to have Charles join the leadership team. Over the last year, we have launched many new features and enhancements, driving up demand for our solutions. By adding his experience and his natural ability to assess what customers need, he helps position us very effectively moving forward.” Chris Jurkiewicz, Co-Founder, EVP Client Services.

Charles, along with Chris Jurkiewicz, presented at the Technology in Practice 2017 Conference held November 8 – 10, 2017 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto, Canada. The presentation discussed how electronic discovery in the cloud has redefined the legal industry, as well as the vast benefits of using a cloud platform such as VenioOne OnDemand.

“The value of technology can only really be measured by the challenges it solves. Venio is more than a powerful processing solution, it is also a powerful review platform too. Meeting after meeting, I’m hearing that there has been a huge gap in discovery capabilities created over the past 7 years. Venio addresses that gap and is solving a number of other discovery challenges too,” noted Lavallée. “Having more agile and adaptable control of your own data and eDiscovery workflow is critical for any law firm or corporation these days. Plus Venio powers new levels of services and capabilities to our partners.”

Industry Veteran Matthew Nelson to Guide Growth of Consulting Services

 

Charlotte, NC – January 26, 2018 – DiscoverReady®, a leading information intelligence solution provider specializing in legal, compliance and governance, announced today the appointment of Matthew D. Nelson to lead the company’s growing consulting organization. In the newly created role, Nelson will focus on expanding the company’s information governance service offerings and serve as AGC of Privacy & Security.

Nelson is a nationally known attorney, legal technology expert and author with 20 years of experience, and a co-founding member of the Association of Corporate Counsel Information Governance Committee. Nelson’s career has focused on helping enterprises develop best practices for managing risk resulting from the explosive growth and mismanagement of electronic information. Most recently Nelson served as law and technology attorney in Symantec’s Corporate Strategy group, where he monitored and interpreted privacy and data security policy developments important to global business strategy, and served as the company information governance champion. Nelson previously served as senior electronic discovery attorney at Clearwell, a software startup company that significantly influenced modern eDiscovery best practices, culminating in a merger with Symantec.  He started his legal technology career serving in various business and strategy roles with Summation, Marsh & McLennan (Kroll Ontrack), and EMC2, after practicing in complex litigation with Bay Area firm Ropers, Majeski, Kohn & Bentley.

“In this era of big data, organizations increasingly need a coordinated approach to address many critical legal and compliance requirements – managing information risks while optimizing information value,” said James Schellhase, CEO at DiscoverReady. “Matt’s superior legal, technical and practical experience, along with his passion for client service will be a great asset to DiscoverReady as we focus on meeting that growing demand and helping our clients proactively embrace information governance.”

“It’s an exciting time to join this dynamic organization,” said Nelson. “The DiscoverReady team has deep experience helping some of the world’s best-known corporations and law firms identify and remediate short and long-term risk and cost across several information governance disciplines including e-discovery, privacy, security and records management, to name a few. The success of DiscoverReady is the result of hiring great employees who possess the business, technology and consulting acumen to help customers address the many legal compliance challenges resulting from explosive data growth and mismanagement.  I look forward to helping DiscoverReady build upon its market-leading reputation for exceptional, high-quality delivery so we can continue to help our customers address existing challenges like e-discovery, new challenges like GDPR compliance, and to break down Information Governance from an almost overwhelming concept into discrete, actionable solutions for specific challenges pertinent for each customer.”

Nelson is a member of the California and Idaho State Bars, and he holds the International Association of Privacy Professionals CIPP/US certification. He earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho College of Law and a Bachelor of Science, Political Science, from the University of Idaho.
