Editor’s Note: First administered in December of 2018 and conducted four times during the last two years with 334 individual responses, the semi-annual eDiscovery Pricing Survey seeks to provide a mechanism for legal, business, and information technology professionals in the eDiscovery ecosystem to share and understand current pricing trends on selected collection, processing, and review tasks. As your opinion is important in helping form a picture of industry-standard pricing on these selected eDiscovery tasks, please do take the few minutes necessary to contribute your expert opinion and observations to this year’s winter pricing survey.
