Fortune 1000 Counsel Reveal Emerging E-discovery Playbook
Fifth Annual Advice from Counsel Study Highlights Leading Corporate Methodologies on Resourcing, Technology and Processes
"Over the past five years, Advice from Counsel has grown into a community of leading e-discovery practitioners sharing best practices across a range of topics such as adoption of predictive coding and reuse of attorney work product on similar matters," said
Among this year's Advice from Counsel study findings:
- Ninety percent of the participating organizations have dedicated internal resources for handling routine preservation through collection. Third parties are used to handle situations involving international data privacy laws, collection from mobile devices or social media data, and certain sensitive cases where it's beneficial to have a third party collect the materials.
- Eighty-three percent of the participating organizations outsource review and production with 60 percent of all organizations outsourcing directly to a service provider, and 23 percent relying on their law firm to handle the decision.
- While more than 85 percent of organizations plan to use analytics and predictive coding technology, only 17 percent recommended that companies bring predictive coding in-house.
"The annual Advice from Counsel study has become a valuable tool for corporate legal teams to share perspectives on e-discovery best practices," said
