As we say goodbye, and in some cases good riddance, to 2017, it’s time to leave behind archaic, slow, and expensive eDiscovery practices as well.
For decades now, eDiscovery has been a burden on legal professionals and on the legal system as a whole. Attorneys spend hours, days, weeks slogging through massive document dumps in order to find useful evidence. Clients complain about excessive collection and the astonishing, unpredictable costs of third-party vendors. Judges lament that growing discovery costs risk keeping litigants out of court altogether.
