Size Doesn't Matter?

ServingJust as we have seen the migration of attorneys from big law firms to smaller ones during the recent recession; regional e-discovery service providers appear to be experiencing a similar trend. Just look at current e-discovery job postings, and you will see they are all coming from regional providers.

There are several reasons for this shift: smaller vendors often provide more personalized and specialized services; they are usually more flexible in terms of rates and technology used; size doesn't matter because technology has essentially leveled the playing field; and corporations seem to be shying away from using a single vendor and prefer a small stable of vendors instead.

To be sure, large vendors are not going away, we are just seeing companies using more regional vendors that can provide them services on their terms.
