HBR Consulting released results of its Law Firm e-Discovery Strategy Survey which identifies trends in law department electronic discovery (e-discovery) operations and 2015 planning around staffing, technology, revenue, and strategy.
“Rapidly identifying relevant documents, and ultimately finding the key documents, are vital to developing an effective case strategy and providing timely and accurate counsel to clients.”
Key findings reveal that law firms are:
- Offering the full lifecycle of e-discovery services via in-house operations.
- Investing in technology assisted review (TAR) capabilities, with 78% of firms indicating that they have implemented the technology and the remaining firms adding it this year.
- Providing perceived higher value advisory services, assisting clients with Information Governance challenges, advising in the defensible use of TAR, and managing the preservation/legal hold process.
