Our practice covers eDiscovery and GRC (Governance, Records Management, and Compliance). We analyze technology and trends in these active and growing categories, and communicate their impact on the enterprise and its outside law firms.
Corporations are actively looking for technology to help them meet GRC and eDiscovery demands while controlling costs, and will demand that their outside law firms do the same. By forming interdisciplinary teams at the corporate level to research related solutions, the enterprise will help to drive technology development past specific litigation concerns. Litigation will remain the most significant pain point, but GRC benefits directly from eDiscovery-driven development and is not far behind. As analysts, we influence Legal and IT decision-makers in the enterprise as they look to eDiscovery technology tools.
