She has held senior roles within a Big Four consulting firm, as well as Vice President, Assistant General Counsel positions at Bear Stearns, where she worked as a review manager, and JPMorgan Chase, where she developed and led the review management group and oversaw the review for numerous litigation and regulatory matters during the fallout of the 2008 financial crisis.
Ms. Mackay has more than a decade of experience in e-discovery with a deep commitment to developing custom workflows to assist clients in navigating complex data sets.
