Accomplished global eDiscovery leader and strategist returns to expand market presence

Michael Conner

There is so much opportunity to help clients accomplish their eDiscovery goals—whether it’s managed review services, collections around the globe or assisting clients with the new dimensions that social media and cloud applications add to the process.

Advanced Discovery, a leading provider of eDiscovery services and software for law firms and corporations worldwide, today announced Michael Conner has joined the company as the managing director. Working out of the San Francisco office, Conner brings over 20 years’ experience in delivering strategic advice and services to global clients challenged with managing massive volumes of electronically stored information (ESI) during discovery.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Mike back to our executive team,” said David Vandygriff, CEO of Advanced Discovery. “His leadership in forging trusted advisor relationships with clients around the world strengthens our commitment to strategically engage with clients to solve their most complex, global eDiscovery challenges.”

Effective immediately, Conner will lead key Advanced Discovery customer-facing organizations, including business development, marketing and solutions and services.

Prior to joining Advanced Discovery, Conner led complex litigation and regulatory client engagements across the globe as a managing director at Alvarez & Marsal. He also previously served as a managing director at UnitedLex, where legal clients sought his strategic guidance on eDiscovery and innovative operational solutions. Over his career—including tenures at Deloitte Financial Advisory Services and the law firm of Davis Polk & Wardell—Conner provided law firm and corporate clients with technical eDiscovery services spanning expert testimony, computer forensics, collections and information governance advice.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled about joining the Advanced Discovery team,” said Conner. “It’s an exciting time to rejoin a company I helped found 13 years ago. There is so much opportunity to help clients accomplish their eDiscovery goals—whether it’s managed review services stateside, collections around the globe or assisting clients with the new dimensions that social media and cloud applications add to the discovery process.”
