Firms are struggling with a legacy practice of writing off litigation support/e-discovery and related costs but have been challenged to identify and implement recovery models or managed services models that are both acceptable to the firm and to their clients. On top of all of this, many firms simply fail to dispose of the data at the matter closing and costs continue to accumulate year over year. Mattern has launched the first ever e-Discovery and Litigation Support Cost Recovery Survey to gather that needed data to help drive firms’ better business decisions.
Discoverable data volumes have grown exponentially and continue to do so at break-neck speed — industry forecasts predict electronically stored information (ESI) will see a five-fold growth in the short amount of time between now and 2020 alone. This is, of course, the driving factor as to why enterprises across verticals are spending more on e-discovery: an aggregated view of publicly available data projects values the industry currently at $10.1 billion and tracks the trend to nearly double in the next three years to each almost $19 billion.
