Guidance Software releases the results of its 2015 Annual eDiscovery Survey

Guidance SoftwareIn advance of CEIC in Las Vegas, Guidance Software has released the results of its 2015 Second Annual eDiscovery Survey.

As before, questions were put to in-house legal departments and eDiscovery service providers, nearly 100 of whom replied.

The main conclusions from the survey are consistent with the trends identified last year – in-house legal departments are facing more eDiscovery work and are taking more control of it themselves, increasingly by acquiring their own software tools.

The key findings include the following:

  • 53.5 percent indicated that caseloads are growing
  • 55 percent of those surveyed review more than 50 percent of their cases internally
  • 72 percent have an e-discovery software solution, with 46.7 percent having more than one
  • 50 percent reported having a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program in place with an average of 50 percent participation by employees
  • 44.4 percent want the ability to collect ESI from the cloud in a defensible manner

I have written a short paper in conjunction with Guidance Software which looks at some of the more important results. You can find more information and a link to the paper here.
