Even though in-house legal teams have typically outsourced many e-discovery activities to law firms and service providers, a new wave of cost conscious law departments have recently started insourcing the e-discovery process. Case in point — according to the 2015 Law Firms in Transition Report by Altman Weil, 67% of law firms say they are currently losing business to corporate law departments that are in-sourcing legal work.
In this webcast, learn from experienced in-house e-discovery professionals on how to successfully adopt e-discovery technology in-house for decreased legal spend and increased legal team productivity.
