Noted attorney, eDiscovery expert Chris Schultz joins Level 2 Legal Solutions
DALLAS, Texas — Chris Schultz has become Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Level 2 Legal Solutions, a leading eDiscovery and legal solutions outsourcing firm. Schultz comes to Level 2 from the AmLaw 50 firm Perkins Coie, where he was the founder and co-chair of their eDiscovery practice.
“I have partnered with Level 2 on the most complex and sensitive of cases over the years and have watched them position themselves right where I want to be — at the intersection of technology and unparalleled personal attention to clients’ needs,” said Mr. Schultz. “There is a new value model quickly emerging in the legal world, and the opportunities are tremendous for Level 2.”
Mr. Schultz joins Level 2 after more than 16 years with Perkins Coie. He formed and co-chaired the eDiscovery Services & Strategies legal practice at the firm in 2007 and quickly established himself as one of the first experts in the new world of eDiscovery law. A faculty member for The Sedona Conference, the legal sector’s premier forum dedicated to the advancement of eDiscovery law and policy, Schultz graduated summa cum laude from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law where he was an editor of the Arizona Law Review.
Mr. Schultz’s extensive relationships range from Fortune 50 corporations to technology startups, having provided advice and expertise on the legal and technical issues surrounding data retention, corporate compliance, document production, and the full scope of eDiscovery in litigation and investigations. He has also served as a key discovery expert in a number of high-profile intellectual property and employment class-action matters.
“Chris has been at the center of the shift in legal services over the last decade and I have seen first-hand his tremendous knowledge, insight, and results,” says Level 2 Legal CEO Joey Seeber. “He’s one of the best in the field and the perfect fit as we further expand our services.”
“I have worked with many eDiscovery providers over the years, and my experience has been that Level 2 is in a class of its own,” says Mr. Schultz. “This is a natural next step for me and for Level 2. We are perfectly positioned and are confident our clients and counsel with whom we work will find value in the expanded services we will offer.”
