TRU Tips

Sales staffing in ESI is all about timing—not the client’s timing, but the candidate’s timing. Smart ESI companies are always looking for sales talent and ready to move on that talent when and if they become available.

Top 3 Observations On Legalweek Advertising
  • DISCO, a growing cloud hosted review platform software provider, has purchased almost all of the Hilton lobby advertising real estate with large and clever posters at every entrance and on every structural column at Legalweek.
  • Epiq/DTI (now notably Epiq Global), the most powerful and dominant player in the ESI industry, was not a core sponsor this year and had minimal advertising throughout the show. The change in ad space visibility seems indicative of changes in Legalweek's power over buyers as a venue for making new deals happen.
  • ACEDS has a strong presence this year, including a circulating vendor bingo card that promotes their brand as well as their strategic partners, which include Compliance DS, Relativity, Cloud9, TRU, and others.

TRU Tips

About 50% of roles filled by TRU in June 2020 were jobs that had been active prior to COVID.

TOP 3 Job Market Takeaways From Q2 2020
  • For most alternative legal service providers, the bottom was felt in April and May with all-time lows in net new hires.
  • The privacy job market is coming back strong, but corporations are rethinking and retooling their leadership roles/responsibilities rather than hiring/scaling their middle management staff.
  • ESI companies and law firms are running lean on talent despite rising billables. ESI mid-market staffing remains flat (on hold mostly) for project managers and analysts.
