Managed services around litigation support (and more specifically e-discovery) has garnered enormous buzz in the industry in the past couple of years. From national to regional providers, law firms are increasingly presented with options to offload all (or components) of their internal litigation support offering including infrastructure, software, and people when paired with a guaranteed time and revenue commitment (going beyond the traditional transactional models).

In a 2015, managed e-discovery and litigation support survey (reported on by LTN here), 28 percent of respondents indicated that their firm had entered into some form of managed services arrangement concerning their litigation support offering. In addition, 46 percent of respondents indicated that their firm is considering the use of Managed Services for litigation support moving forward. There are a number of factors driving firms to consider such an arrangement:

  • Risk mitigation;
  • Security;
  • Disaster recovery;
  • Flexibility;
  • Technology obsolescence;
  • Staffing expertise;
  • Cost; and
  • Pricing model.
