Huron Consulting Group Receives Top Marks in 2008 Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery Survey
“We are honored to be recognized for so many facets of our discovery consulting services by this important, independent survey,” said Shahzad Bashir, vice president, Huron Consulting Group’s Legal Consulting practice. “E-discovery is a significant and growing component of the legal sector, and we are proud to act as a trusted business service provider to our clients offering them high quality and cost effective consulting services that run the entire discovery gamut.”
Huron has long been a leader in the e-discovery marketplace adding value to clients by reducing costs, time and risks. Earlier this year, Huron launched V3locity™, a fixed price per reviewed page e-discovery service, which can result in a 60 percent reduction in costs to clients compared to industry standard pricing. V3locity combines cost savings, high speed, new technology and experts in Review Centers across the country to deliver a total litigation support solution for law firms, corporate legal departments, and government agencies.
Electronic document discovery has become one of the single largest components of litigation, complex investigations and second request reviews, with the review portion accounting for up to 80 percent of the $3 billion a year e-discovery marketplace. Huron’s V3locity model distinguishes itself from others with a combined services approach at significantly reduced costs and turnaround time delivering measurable results for clients.
