Law firms are investing in eDiscovery, but to what end?

Earlier this year, HBR Consulting released the findings of its survey of law firm e-discovery trends. The survey, which probed the ability and appetite to bring e-discovery in-house, found that, on the whole, firms not only viewed investing in e-discovery as a high priority, but essential to sustaining and growing their practices.

“A law firm’s capability to provide e-discovery services has gone from a novelty to a business necessity,” the survey report concluded.

In this edition of the Logikcull Cullcast, Bobbi Basile, HBR’s managing director and author of the report, discusses how and why firms are investing in e-discovery, the challenges they face measuring ROI, and the role of vendors as business partners.
