Our eDiscovery Industry Benchmarks provide a custom view into Advanced Discovery’s anonymized, multi-year database of thousands of matters, in a wide-range of industry verticals.

Few eDiscovery providers have the scale, scope – and expertise – to create more normalized benchmarking information than Advanced Discovery. Our benchmarks are at the aggregate level, adhering to industry confidentiality and privacy requirements – while providing critical comparisons for your decision making.


eDiscovery Industry Benchmarks are relevant for both corporations and law firms trying to better manage costs and improve efficiencies in their eDiscovery workflow.

Our statistically significant national and peer group benchmarks let you compare your performance against those key factors that have the most influence on downstream eDiscovery project costs and timelines:

  • Processing Expansion Factors: Expected number of files and data volumes post-ingestion, processing and extraction of full native files.
  • ECA & Analytics Reduction Percentages: Expected reduction of non-relevant data via techniques including near duplicate detection, email threading, custodian identification – and other analytic tools.
  • Document Review Percentages: Expected population of documents to be reviewed by legal resources; primary factor in eDiscovery timeline and cost.

We are the first to bring this level of transparency to the eDiscovery community because it’s the right thing to do for our clients and the broader risk management market.

“Data-driven insight to drive quality outcomes, better manage costs and improve workflow efficiencies are no longer an option for eDiscovery; they're a requirement.”

Jim Burke, CEO, Advanced Discovery
