Hudson Legal’s Mark Yacano Joins OLP C-Level Advisory Group

LOS ANGELES, September 23, 2010 –

The Organization of Legal Professionals, an industry group that includes some of the most respected eDiscovery thought leaders in the field, announced today that Mark Yacano, Executive Vice President of Hudson Legal, a leading document review and project management services firm, has joined the organization’s C-Level Advisory Group. This group includes document management and litigation support executives who provide input and feedback to the OLP’s Board of Governors, Advisory Council and membership about growing trends and continuing needs as seen by legal service providers. 

“We are honored to serve the OLP in an advisory capacity as a participating member of their C-Level Team,” said Yacano.  “I believe sharing our experiences and expertise in the field of e-discovery will be invaluable as the organization shapes its thinking about new standards and certification for this rapidly-evolving industry.”

Other members of the C-Level group include Ron Friedmann, Vice President, Integreon; Nigel Murrary, CEO, Trilantic; Chris Olsson, CEO, Cricket Technologies; Eddie Sheehy, CEO, Nuix; Vicki Hill, CEO, Norcross Group; Nick Hariton, Managing Director, IPP-LLC; Warwick Sharpe, Vice President, Equivio; Bill Gallivan, GGO, LLC; and David S. Cochran, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Planet Data Solutions, Inc.

Yacano is responsible for the strategic direction and profitable growth of Hudson’s industry-leading legal staffing and discovery solutions business in

North America .  A member of the Virginia State Bar, Yacano founded the Discovery Solutions practice at Wright, Robinson, Osthimer and Tatum, one of the first law firms in the U.S. to develop a specialized document review and discovery practice. Under his leadership, that business grew steadily year-over-year.  He joined Hudson Legal this April.

“I welcome Mark to our C-Level Advisory Group and anticipate the many ways the OLP can utilize his expertise,” said Chere Estrin, who chairs the OLP Board of Directors. “Mark’s credentials are among the best in the business, and his background as a practicing lawyer with vast eDiscovery knowledge will enhance our ability to educate eDiscovery professionals.”
