A short percentage-based assessment of the qualitative benefit of the recently published and updated 2022 eDisclosure Systems Buyers Guide authored by Andrew Haslam.
ComplexDiscovery Note: Authored by litigation support and eDisclosure expert Andrew Haslam, the eDisclosure Systems Buyers Guide – 2022 Edition provides an overview of key technology considerations, industry approaches, and vendor capabilities regarding the discipline of eDisclosure (eDiscovery). Covering topics from the EDRM Model to vendor service and software analysis, the guide provides a complete and credible resource for legal and IT professionals seeking to understand and apply eDisclosure (eDiscovery) concepts, processes, techniques, and tools. It is quite simply the best buyers guide available.
The eDisclosure Systems – Buyers Guide – 2022 Edition
Andrew Haslam and Complex Discovery today publish the 2022 edition of the “industry bible”, now in its tenth year. In this latest edition, there have been 62 modifications to the entries, with the guide now showing 92 suppliers and 54 products, reflecting the loss of 12 entries, an additional 16 companies, and two name changes since the last edition.
Welcome to the tenth edition of the Buyer’s Guide to eDisclosure Systems. This will be the last version of the Guide in its current form. After a decade of using my spare time in the first half of the year to pull together this document, I’m moving away from the keyboard to spend more time with my wife and Grandchildren. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Guide over the years, it has been (mainly) fun.
When I first started drafting this I was going to reflect upon a world emerging from a global pandemic, events in Ukraine have overshadowed that perspective. The world is changing in a way not seen for decades, all we can do is try to look after those things that are within our control. If your area of focus is eDisclosure then it is hoped this Guide will prove useful.
Welcome to Andrew Haslam buyer’s guide to litigation support (or eDisclosure/ Discovery) systems. As with previous editions, this version has been released in Spring to ensure that the latest information from the LegalTech exhibition in New York has been incorporated.
The target audience for the Guide are those individuals who understand they have a requirement, but do not know how to proceed with the next steps. It is assumed that people within organisations that have a litigation support function, will turn to them in the first instance for advice, but might use this document as a primer on what is available.
Possible readers of the Guide are end users of these systems, be they lawyers, barristers, in-house counsel, or IT departments. The Guide does not purport to identify the “best” software or supplier in the marketplace, but instead aims to supply information to allow users to arrive a shortlist of potential vendors, with a procurement exercise being the next logical step.
The Guide is based on Andrew Haslam’s general experience in the marketplace, also drawing from a number of vendor procurement exercises. The information on firms and software tools has been provided by the organisations themselves, albeit moderated by the author.
The remainder of the Guide contains a background to the marketplace, looking in more detail at the scope of the document and potential users, and an overview of the EDRM model. A Chapter on the technology areas provides a more detailed examination of the processes that underpin the EDRM schematic, followed by an in-depth survey of the marketplace, the vendors, current issues and potential problems.
A procurement Chapter provides the “meat” of the document with example requirements for scanning, coding, data collection and litigation support services. There is a reference Chapter for additional links to other useful sites and then the specific details of suppliers and software.
Andrew is currently employed as the UK eDisclosure Project Manager for Squire Patton Boggs (UK) LLP, all opinion within the Guide is Andrew’s personal viewpoint and does not represent any views, opinions or strategies of Squire Patton Boggs.
