    Climbing a Horizontal Plane: E-Discovery’s Future in the Corporate Legal Department

    In their efforts of greater organizational alignment, process efficiency and the desire to curb spending, general counsels are increasingly dedicating more of their budgets towards investments in technological tools.  Yet the explosive growth of e-discovery, a now staple solution for most corporate legal departments, is said to be leveling off.  What will this mean for general counsels who have centered the culture of efficiency in their departments around technology? How will this affect those whom corporate legal departments hire for their work?  Should general counsels consider shifting their focus and budgets in a different direction? Are providers developing new solutions or ways to retool e-discovery to be more or do more? What is e-discovery’s next big move and how can a corporate legal department best be prepared for it?
