AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/austin?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#austinlt;/agt;–Legal software-as-a-service leader DISCO
today announced Catherine “Cat” A. Casey, an established thought leader
in ediscovery and data analytics, joined the company as its first Chief
Innovation Officer.

In this newly created role, Casey will lead industry conversations
around how legal professionals can embrace technology to deliver better
legal outcomes, while serving as a key evangelist for DISCO as the
company continues its aggressive product and services innovation and
international growth. She brings more than a decade of experience

AmLaw 200 firm’s global ediscovery and practice technology team. She
specialized in ediscovery, data analytics, cyber security and
information governance.

“The legal technology industry is at a major inflection point, where
innovative organizations leveraging machine learning and AI to reduce
time to insight are changing the practice of law. DISCO stands head and
shoulders above the competition,” said Casey. “DISCO has a vision that
expands beyond ediscovery, to fundamentally change how legal
practitioners utilize technology across all aspects of law,
supercharging human decision making. I am beyond excited to align myself
with the clear leader in advanced cloud-based discovery and to work with
the innovative technical experts that drive this industry-leading
organization.”

“Cat embodies the inventor’s spirit that is core to DISCO’s culture. Her
unique combination of technical and legal expertise will allow DISCO to
further challenge the status quo while bringing transformative new
legaltech solutions to the market,” said Neil Etheridge, DISCO chief
marketing officer.

Prior to joining Gibson Dunn, Casey helped run the computer forensics
and ediscovery practice at PwC. She also built out the antitrust
forensic technology practice and served as the national subject matter
expert on ediscovery for KPMG. A graduate of Harvard University, Casey
also attended Pepperdine School of Law.

Casey will be based out of DISCO’s Austin headquarters.
