Correy Stephenson writes about a persona in the e-discovery landscape called the “special master.”
The e-discovery special master has evolved as a role in the courts that can be assigned special tasks in a court case â€“ whether advising on technology-related issues or overseeing all discovery.
As anyone who attended LegalTech earlier this month will know, countless vendors are claiming to provide e-discovery solutions these days. Customers are still spending much money on e-discovery requests, which represents opportunity.
The e-discovery market is still young. We expect solution evolution and vendor consolidation to continue over the next three to five years.
