In our EDD Supplier Landscape report we projected a long-term trend influencing the locus of procurement for e-discovery services -- decision-making is moving away from law firms in favor of the corporate counsel's office. What better way to follow-up than to speak directly with the corporate counsels?
In this analysis we present the results of interviews with the offices of the general counsel in 269 global 1000 companies -- the objective is to put metrics around the attitudes and behaviors that define corporate litigation readiness.
The research findings clearly illuminate issues and variables which impact corporate litigation readiness ... but, of course, we didn't stop there.
We pick up the story of the changing dynamic between corporate litigants and their outside counsels by describing a nascent trend -- convergence of EDD and compliance systems and processes. In EDD Supplier Landscape, we told you "what" ... this research project helps to explain "why." For good measure, we even through in our best thinking on "how" and "when."
