Extract from Casey Sullivan's article "Six Ways to Take Control of Your eDiscovery Process and Realize Instant ROI"
The future of eDiscovery is increasingly DIY. Without control over discovery, data collection, and review, litigation teams spend more time managing overhead and less time focused on the specifics of each case. Not only does this pile on stress—and cost—it puts them at a disadvantage in many situations. But times are changing and, thanks to a rapid evolution in discovery technology and business models, more and more legal professionals have been empowered to take control of their discovery process. To do it themselves.
As a result, law firms like Baker Donelson are reimagining their eDiscovery process to empower their trial teams. Without additional timekeepers and overhead, these attorneys can quickly and easily access their discovery data and begin review. It’s as easy as dragging and dropping files. Attorneys are empowered and client value is quickly maximized.
