Out of Cold Storage and Onto Your Screen: Why In-House E-Discovery Review is Taking Hold

Bringing e-discovery review in-house is becoming more common by the week. The days of sending legal assistants and paralegals away to “storage camp” are becoming history not just because of the reality that the overwhelming amount of our business information is stored electronically. It’s because bringing review in house makes sense in terms of early case assessment as well as costs and time.

A few developments in the legal industry are fueling this trend, too. Inside counsel are becoming both savvier about technology and more impatient with the inability to gain oversight on the process when review is always and only outsourced. When counsel asks, “How far along are we in the review process?” and receives an answer like, “Um, it’s hard to quantify exactly,” it’s time to get a different system in place.
