In last month’s column, I considered how cost and efficiency considerations have prompted many companies to bring in-house some of the collection and review functions traditionally performed by e-discovery vendors. I also described three scenarios in which a litigant should consider retaining an outside e-discovery consultant, no matter how sophisticated the company’s in-house resources. In this month’s column, I will discuss the second step in retaining an e-discovery consultant- now that you have decided your litigation requires an e-discovery consultant, how do you find the right one? To answer this question, we return to the three scenarios we considered in the previous column because finding the right consultant means finding the person or team with the skills and resources that match your needs for the case.
