Jeffrey Salling, Esq., is the Global Director of eDiscovery at Novartis. After starting the rest of world efforts in Basel, Switzerland, Mr. Salling moved to New Jersey to run the global practice. Mr. Salling previously held high-ranking positions at Complete Discovery Source (CDS) and Deloitte Consulting in Chicago. Mr. Salling is an expert on the topic of eDiscovery whose hands-on experience managing large-scale, challenging matters (including antitrust, intellectual property, and commercial litigation) gives him a unique perspective on technology and best practices in handling electronically stored information (ESI). As a former document review contractor, Jeffrey has worked at every level along the eDiscovery spectrum. His early experiences have allowed him to fully maximize 'the big picture' perspective to ensure that early decisions always take into account the end-goals. While at Deloitte, Mr. Salling absorbed as much technology-assisted review (TAR) knowledge as possible and brought that innovation to Novartis. Currently, he focuses on the cross-border discovery, disclosure, and data privacy (GDPR/Swiss Privacy), but often advises and collaborates with Compliance, Records Management, and Operations. Mr. Salling is also an Adjunct Professor of eDiscovery at the University of Illinois at Chicago, John Marshall Law School, an institution that specializes in providing students with "practice-ready" knowledge and skills. He developed his own curriculum with the intention of giving future professionals a broad look at the world of eDiscovery and non-traditional practicing of law.
