Document Review Calculator
How much does an eDiscovery document review cost? What does managed review cost per document? How many documents can an attorney review in an hour? In a day?
Electronic discovery costs and document review speed turns on several variables:
- The review type (is it a first pass review for relevance, or are documents coded for legal issues)?
- Is redaction needed? (Does the ESI (electronically stored information) contain personally identifiable information or sensitive information that needs to be kept confidential?)
- Is it a linear attorney review with eyes on every document, or a technology assisted review (TAR --the use of eDiscovery analytics, artificial intelligence or machine learning)?
- What eDiscovery document review software is being used and is there a monthly cost per gb (gigabyte) for data hosting?
