“Working with ACEDS to certify our permanent project managers allows us to feel certain that we have hired the highest quality individuals that not only have knowledge of the law but also the workflow and processes that surround the review,” said Christopher Gallagher, Senior Vice President of Special Counsel. “Project management is a well-established process in many other disciplines and we are excited to work with ACEDS to bring that same structure to the legal field.”
“Special Counsel is taking a crucial step to reduce the time, cost and risk of the assignments its project managers undertake,” said Lanny Morris, ACEDS Executive Director. “Requiring the CEDS credential will foster confidence within the organization and with the clients it services.”
All Special Counsel temporary project managers will be required to undergo CEDS exam training and be eligible to earn the full CEDS certification after one year of continued employment through Special Counsel.
