Portland, Oregon, Oct. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exterro® Inc., the preferred provider of software specifically designed for in-house legal, privacy and IT teams at Global 2000 and AmLaw 200 organizations, along with the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) and In The House today announced the release of the 2019 In-House Legal Benchmarking Report based on a recent survey of attorneys, legal directors, general counsel, and paralegals.
Key findings of the 2019 In-House Legal Benchmarking Report include:
“This year’s in-house legal benchmarking report is full of both good and bad news. It’s good to see that in-house legal teams are becoming more mature in their management of e-discovery processes, but it is alarming to see how unprepared so many legal teams are for the CCPA and other looming privacy regulations. Legal teams must take notice of how these regulations will impact their companies and business processes,” said Bill Piwonka, CMO at Exterro.
“ACEDS is proud to continue to support the 4th Annual In-House Benchmarking Report with Exterro and In the House. Less than 20% of respondents describe their e-discovery maturity as “ad hoc” even with the increasing numbers of smaller teams. With high levels of satisfaction for both in house teams and outsourced services, law firms and service providers will need to differentiate to dislodge incumbents,” said Mary Mack, Executive Director at ACEDS.
“The results of this year’s in-house legal benchmarking report illustrate the increased empowerment of in-house counsel over prior years, yet it also reveals that much work remains to be done, said Chris Colvin, Founder & CEO at In The House.
The 2019 In-House Legal Benchmarking Report is based on a survey of 180 respondents of in-house legal professionals conducted in the summer of 2019. The full report can be downloaded here.
