The instant survey says....:
"The most common law firm preference for managing client e-discovery data is through a combination of in-house software and outsourced processing services, according to an instant survey of law firm attorneys, litigation support specialists and e-discovery specialists conducted yesterday by LexisNexis® Discovery Services during the opening sessions of LegalTech New York 2007, the largest legal technology event of the year.
"Forty eight percent of the survey participants reported their firms prefer the combined approach. The second most popular choice, expressed by 28 percent of those surveyed, was to manage e-discovery data with in-house software. Fourteen percent of the respondents said that they preferred outsourcing e-discovery data management to a vendor and 10 percent said they did not know."
