NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the latest indicator of disruption in the legal technology industry, ALM's Law Technology News reports today that a number of influential electronic data discovery industry veterans made significant career moves to new positions over the past 18 months.

In its December 2013 issue cover story, "Watch List," LTN Editor-in-Chief Monica Bay documents recent significant career moves by 12 leaders and explores a possible common theme behind these recent changes.

"We found that some of these moves were normal career upgrades, but in many cases the underlying motivation was to expand their horizons," said Bay. "The emergence of predictive analytics is not just changing e-discovery protocols and expectations, but is shaping major change in information management and governance. How these sophisticated tools will affect legal, corporate and government organizations presents challenges in everything from compliance to risk management, and presents both challenges and opportunities to those who will lead."

The December 2013 issue of LTN is available online now at www.lawtechnologynews.com.
