Hudson Legal, a division of staffing firm Hudson Highland Group that sells document review and legal staffing services, is expanding into legal technology consulting. The revised group will be treated as its own business unit, says Mark Yacano, executive vice president and global e-discovery team leader. “They will do traditional project management [and] they will also begin to be more consultative in nature,” he adds.
Hudson Legal recently hired Leah Guggenheimer as senior vice president of e-discovery services. Guggenheimer’s position has been open for the past year, says Yacano. “We’ve made the strategic decision that project management is sort of the lynchpin to our forward strategy. … We’ve been taking our time looking.”
