In the first article in this series, we looked at the cost of individual e-discovery projects as they are outsourced. We explored the fact that hours spent on review consume at least 70 percent of a discovery budget and that use of advanced analytics provided a return on investment by saving on review. In the second article, we looked at costs for bringing e-discovery in house. We demonstrated that with staffing, software, training and infrastructure, in-house processing, review and production might cost about $1 million for a modest-sized capability.
