The eDiscovery Advisory team provides an innovative approach to managing predictable eDiscovery costs without a heavy investment in people and technology. Law firms and corporations that deal with large volumes of cases and data struggle with the standard “a la carte” pricing per gig and per hour for project management. Internal teams are contracting as the volume and complexity of matters grow so let the eDiscovery Advisory team be an extension of your in-house team.
The eDiscovery Advisory managed services program uses metrics to deliver a consistent and cost-effective solution customized to your organization’s specific needs. Our solutions are designed to support multi-jurisdictional privacy challenges around the globe. We begin by assessing the scope of the managed service solution through the lens of people, process and technology in partnership with your team. The technology and deployment (on-prem; cloud, hybrid) selection is completely agnostic. Our experts have evaluated 100+ eDiscovery providers and technology services in the past 3 years and are able to recommend the best solution to your particular needs. The eDiscovery Advisory team has managed dozens of RFI and RFP procurement processes for in-house and outside counsel so our team can quickly determine the best solution and negotiate the best price. We can also run proof of concepts (PoC) to validate the technology within your infrastructure.
Automation and reporting is built into every layer of the workflow. Many of our eDiscovery Advisory clients have successfully developed the ability to re-apply decisions (privileged, non-privileged, responsive, etc.) around matters in a secure manner.
Our experts work with you to build the budget and business case to present to the stakeholders. The pricing models vary from solution to solution, but we have successfully implemented alternative fee arrangements, volume based, and storage based models. Our goal is to provide you with the best approach to track and manage your eDiscovery spend.
The eDiscovery Managed Service program is standardized, repeatable and defensible through documented workflows in an eDiscovery Playbook and standard operating procedures (e.g. processing specs, standardized coding sheets, etc.) which the entire team will be trained on for consistent operational efficiencies. The plan provides regularly scheduled communication and reporting to hold the program accountable to the stakeholders.
