Companies often struggle with e-discovery challenges whether it is outsourced from an external service provider or done in-house. The biggest challenge companies face while outsourcing e- discovery is the high costs of using outside counsel and vendors. This is why more and more companies are now trying to bring e-discovery in-house. But bringing e-discovery in-house has its own challenges. Can companies overcome some of these challenges by prepping themselves with efficient information and records management systems, dedicated discovery response teams, and investing in smarter tools and technology? I conclude with a list of challenges and a set of recommendations and best practices to effectively and predictably bring e-discovery in-house.
