Bennett Borden

Chief Data Scientist & Chair, Information Governance and eDiscovery Group

Bennett is a globally recognized authority on the legal, technological and policy implications of information. Bennett has focused his career on helping clients use the power of information governance to drive strategic outcomes, reduce e-discovery costs, and improve business operations.

Beginning with his work in the intelligence community, and continuing to his current positions as Chief Data Scientist and Chair of Information Governance at Drinker Biddle & Reath, LLP, Founder & Chair of the Information Governance Initiative, and Executive Managing Director of Tritura IG LLC, Bennett understands that electronic information is a reflection of human thought, choice and conduct. Properly leveraged and protected, information can be a powerful force in achieving business, governmental and societal objectives. Harnessing this force and harvesting the benefits of its application is what drives Bennett's work.

As Chief Data Scientist at DBR, Bennett is responsible for the firm’s data analytics strategy. Harnessing the power of data is essential for DBR’s clients for both driving value in their business operations and to tell their side of the story in litigation. Bennett advises DBR and its clients on the development and use of analytics models that enable insight, data storytelling, and economic value generation. Bennett’s ground-breaking research into the use of machine-based learning and unstructured data for organizational insight is now being put to work in data-driven early warning systems for detecting and preventing corporate fraud and other misconduct at DBR clients. As one of the world’s first lawyer/data scientists, Bennett also builds machine-based learning models to transform and improve legal outcomes in key corporate events including mergers and acquisitions, information governance program development and enforcement, litigation and investigations, and business intelligence.
