Canon Discovery Services Whitepaper Spotlights Solutions that can Help Legal Professionals Reduce eDiscovery Costs

New York, N.Y., (January 29, 2018)—Canon Discovery Services, a division of Canon Business Process Services, Inc. (Canon), has issued a whitepaper highlighting solutions that can help legal professionals meet the challenge of reducing eDiscovery costs.

Although it has produced a sea change in the practice of litigation, eDiscovery has also contributed to rising costs due to the massive amount of data that people and organizations generate every day. Hiring document review attorneys to pore over thousands of emails or comb through huge quantities of electronically-stored-information is often cost-prohibitive, even for large firms and corporations. Electronic discovery is one of the most costly aspects of litigation, with a typical medium-sized lawsuit costing parties between $2.5 million and $3.5 million.1

Canon’s whitepaper, “Reducing eDiscovery Costs: Two Solutions that Can Help Meet the Challenge,” examines some of the factors driving these high costs and two solutions that can help meet the challenge. One strategy involves transforming records management programs into an information management framework that streamlines business operations and better protects customers and stakeholders. The other approach includes leveraging systems such as technology assisted review (TAR) to make the eDiscovery process quicker and more cost-effective.

Canon Business Process Services provides outsourced document management and electronic discovery services to 29 of the Am Law 100 firms.
