2019 eDiscovery Billing and Cost Recovery Survey
An Industry Report from Logikcull
Too often, eDiscovery can be risky, tedious, and expensive. Defined by black-box technologies, exorbitant per-GB hosting costs, and opaque processes, it’s no wonder that clients push back against eDiscovery costs—leading to discovery cost write-offs and reduced revenue. For the many firms that struggle in this area, confusion over how to address discovery costs in a client-friendly, firm-friendly manner, combined with limited visibility into best practices, has contributed to loss of business and strained client relationships.
Logikcull’s survey of more than 100 law firms from across the Logikcull customer base and the profession at large highlights these challenges in stark black and white. From cost recovery models, to pricing challenges, to the reasons behind write-offs, this report intends to shine light on an area that is chronically under-examined, yet increasingly consequential.
