Based on a compilation of research from five leading analyst firms in the electronic discovery arena, the following “Top 50” list provides a short listing of fifty electronic discovery providers.
This listing is taken directly from eDiscovery provider mentions in selected key formal industry reports published between August 2011 and December 2012. Where appropriate, the list has been adjusted for industry mergers and acquisitions, with the primary company listed as the recognized eDiscovery provider.
