Former John Deere Senior Counsel and Head of Global Evidence to Join HaystackID Team of Industry Experts in Delivery of Enterprise Managed Solutions
Building on a year of major growth, enterprise eDiscovery solutions provider HaystackID announced that Jennifer Hamilton has joined as deputy general counsel for global discovery and privacy. Hamilton comes from John Deere, where she spent 14 years leading the development of the company’s eDiscovery operations and was senior counsel and head of the Global Evidence Team.
Hamilton’s addition comes on the heels of HaystackID’s recent merger with NightOwl Global, a worldwide leader in the delivery of corporate law department enterprise data services. The merger, funded by Quad-C Management, Inc., is HaystackID’s fourth major investment since April 2018. It combines two high-performing and complementary companies, creating a complete suite of legal discovery services for corporate legal departments and law firms. The merger strengthens the firm’s expertise in cybersecurity, compliance, corporate discovery management and secure remote review, and significantly expands its Global Client Advisory. Hamilton will work closely with Andrea Wallack, president of HaystackID, to continue to grow the Enterprise Managed Solutions Group, the company’s specialized offerings for corporations and law firms wishing to transform their business of law practices.
“I have known Jenny for many years and her knowledge of and passion for HaystackID underscores our commitment to invest in the very best talent in the industry,” said Wallack. “Her expertise will be key as we continue to expand the suite of services available to our clients through the Global Advisory Group.”
Hamilton has extensive experience in data privacy, electronic records management, investigations and litigation. She is a widely respected innovator in the industry for her disciplined approach at building compliance and discovery programs and cross-border data transfer protocols. An industry thought leader, she serves as co-chair of the Corporate Counsel Committee for The Sedona Conference Working Group 6 on Data Protection & eDiscovery, and serves as faculty for the Federal Judicial Conference, training 60 federal judges on digital discovery issues.
“I am excited to be a part of the continued growth at HaystackID,” said Hamilton. “Our core clients are large organizations with complex discovery management needs, and I’m looking forward to working closely with Andrea and other members of the team to meet those demands in the most cost-effective and efficient way.”
