Extract from Zach Warren’s article “Legal Tech’s Predictions for 2019 in E-Discovery”
Many now consider e-discovery to be a mature market, but that doesn’t mean the pace of innovation is necessarily slowing down. On the contrary, 2018 saw the adoption of new technologies like beginning-of-EDRM analytics at a wider scale, a focus on expanding e-discovery technology into adjacent spaces like information governance, and the acceptance of e-discovery lexicon into the wider legal community.
Looking ahead to 2019, Legaltech News asked a number of e-discovery attorneys and experts what they see as coming next.

Below is their full thoughts, organized by last names in alphabetical order.
