The ever changing and increasingly complex nature of e-discovery – punctuated by a turbulent 2016 which included Brexit, the Panama Papers scandal, and an unpredictable US presidential election cycle – continues to make it difficult for companies to navigate this aspect of the legal landscape.

As we head into the New Year, here are five trends that should be on your radar for e-discovery in 2017:

1. E-discovery is going mainstream: Given their size and expense, e-discovery issues have almost always been top of mind for parties involved in litigation. The rise of big data means the e-discovery issues professionals have dealt with for years, such as of cost, security and transparency, are now increasingly newsworthy. The importance of sifting through data to find relevance is now a challenge that governments and businesses must deal with constantly. Thus, expect e-discovery-related issues to continue making front page headlines in 2017.
