A short percentage-based assessment of the qualitative benefit of the description and request for participation in the Summer 2022 eDiscovery Pricing Survey from ComplexDiscovery.
Editor’s Note: This is not a perfect survey. Nor is it an all-inclusive survey. However, it does attempt to characterize baseline pricing expectations for twelve specific eDiscovery-centric offerings from the perspective of cybersecurity, information governance, and legal discovery professionals operating in the eDiscovery ecosystem. The survey was developed through the aggregation and distillation of a combination of research, reports, and discussions with industry professionals ranging from private equity investors and service providers to legal technology analysts and consumers. While there are many pricing approaches for the offerings within the survey, approaches that span the spectrum from volume, hour, and license models to alternative pricing models including flat fee, managed service, and subscription approaches, the survey seeks to provide insight into the basic building blocks that are comprehended in many of these pricing methods for the purpose of understanding and comparing pricing against pricing and pricing against value.
The eDiscovery Pricing Survey (Summer 2022)
Initiated in the winter of 2019 and conducted seven times during the last three years with 581 individual responses, the semi-annual eDiscovery Pricing Survey provides a mechanism for cyber, data, and legal discovery specialists to share and consider current pricing for selected eDiscovery-centric collection, processing, and review tasks. Today ComplexDiscovery would kindly ask you to share your observations and opinions on eDiscovery pricing by participating in the Summer 2022 eDiscovery Pricing Survey.

*For the purpose of this ongoing industry survey, price and cost are used interchangeably and represent the amount a customer is willing to pay for the service. However, from a financial and accounting perspective, pricing is the amount a customer is willing to pay and the cost is typically the expense incurred for creating and delivering the service.
