    Extract from ALM “Best Of” Surveys

    The “Best Of” reader ranking surveys were developed by ALM, an information and intelligence company, to help lawyers to identify the finest legal products and service providers and to showcase the top selections in an annual edition of one of fourteen surveys. Each survey has multiple categories of products and services presented for consideration, with a subset of categories (survey questions) from each survey that directly or indirectly pertain to the eDiscovery ecosystem.

    Provided below is an aggregation of results from these reader ranking surveys as highlighted in leading ALM magazines ranging from Corporate Counsel to Texas Lawyer administered to online audiences and published as special supplements between September 2017 and today.

    The purpose of the aggregation is to highlight leading providers in the realm of eDiscovery as determined by online voting in these ALM “Best Of” Surveys.
