Disco Layoff

From ArtificialLawyer: Disco, the fast-growing US legal tech company with a focus on eDiscovery, has laid off dozens of staff due to ‘the coronavirus and economic uncertainty’, making it the first business in the sector to publicly acknowledge crisis-driven job cuts. A local news site in Austin, Texas, where Disco is based, said that local sources reckoned the number of job losses were around 75 people at present. The company has seen rapid growth since 2012 and has over 400 people listed on LinkedIn as staff members.

The company would not say what departments the job losses had been across, but given that the legal tech company also offers resource-heavy, project-based services related to eDiscovery, such as custom coding and language review, it may well have been in such areas.
