Who’s Who Legal explored eDiscovery practitioners and identified 64 individuals across North America. Grossman was named as one of five leading individuals in Canada, noting that she “is well known as a ‘highly competent adviser’ who ‘defined the terms for the field of technology-assisted review.’” The entry continues that “clients praise her ‘amazing ability to instantly digest our needs.’”
Grossman, along with her colleague Professor Gordon Cormack, have been hailed as trailblazers in the eDiscovery field, demonstrating that technology-assisted review of legal documents can yield results superior to exhaustive manual review by lawyers.
“It’s wonderful to see Maura’s pioneering contributions to eDiscovery recognized time and again by her legal peers, legal organizations, and their publications,” said Dan Brown, Director of the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science.
“Her technology-assisted review work has been essential in several recent high-stakes legal cases,” Brown said.

In addition to being a research professor in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, Grossman is principal of Maura Grossman Law, an eDiscovery law and consulting firm based in Buffalo, New York. Before joining the University of Waterloo, she was of counsel at the prominent Manhattan law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.
