Useful E-Discovery Cost Estimator

Orange Legal, which offers a hosted e-discovery service, has recently come up with a useful tool that helps you estimate the cost of e-discovery.

With the Predictive Pricing Estimator, you go online and plug in the volume of electronic information to be considered, in gigabytes. You also indicate the number of people who may be reviewing the material. The total cost of e-discovery is then estimated, using common industry estimates for such elements as:

  • Cost of document processing
  • Time taken to review each document
  • The cost of a reviewer's time
  • Computer service or software charges

Many industry references are provided, justifying these estimates. The back-of-the-envelope calculation proceeds along EDRM lines, and considers the costs of analytics, processing, and review. In many cases, the underlying assumptions can be questioned for a given case environment. Nevertheless, this is a helpful and valuable tool.

For more details, see here. A spreadsheet version is also available from Orange Legal. If you want to use the predictor, we recommend you get this--it will let you customize the underlying assumptions to your own environment. ... David Ferris
