Extract from Rhys Dipshan's article "E-Discovery Vendors' Advantage: Firms Are Still Struggling to Compete on Pricing"

According to 6th annual “E-Discovery Unfiltered: A Survey of Current Trends and Candid Perspectives” report by Ari Kaplan Advisors, price is still a determinative factor in whom legal clients select for their e-discovery needs.
