Electronically stored information will grow dramatically in the next year, according to Cowen. In response law firms will be turning to managed services -- outsourcing ESI services to the vendors.

This means job opportunities, with movement from legal shops to once stigmatized vendors -- with salaries topping out at $275,000 a year, plus bonuses. "Managed services is going to drive into the industry like a bulldozer," said Cowen.
