LEDES Adds Activity, Expense to E-Discovery Billing Codes

Ledes_logo400The Legal Electronic Data Exchange Standards organization is following up last year's work on e-discovery billing codes with codes for e-discovery activity and expense, reports Evan Koblentz.

The codes are intended to provide greater insight into the e-discovery billing process by providing a uniform standard for law firms, corporate legal departments, vendors, and clients to itemize and evaluate e-discovery work. They align with the Electronic Discovery Reference Model and the EDRM Metrics Cube, the organization's model to represent how metrics codes fit into the e-discovery process. The new codes include the A100 series for activities and X300 for expenses; last year's billing codes are known as the L600 series.
