In my article “Term Mutations: ECA and EDA Get Murky” published at LawTechnologyNews.com, I advocated for reclaiming the definition of early case assessment (ECA) as a process for developing an overall litigation strategy. ECA best understood incorporates early data assessment (EDA), but is not synonymous with it. Space considerations ruled out a detailed primer on ECA and EDA in the article. This post will cover the how-to of early data assessment and a future post will look at early case assessment.

"The convergence of four established trends is good news for managed review services companies that offer pre-production review of large volumes of ESI at a low cost. Years of lean legal department budgets have created a new breed of price-sensitive corporate counsel who closely scrutinize outside counsel’s bills—and their bids for new cases. Law firms forced to compete on the basis of cost and value are starting to overcome their reluctance to outsource document review."
