Law firm leaders know e-Discovery and litigation support costs have spiraled out of control because of the exponential increase in data volumes—what they don’t know is the optimum way to deliver these services to their clients and how to shift from a legacy model of absorbing hosting, e-Discovery and litigation support costs to a recovery model that their attorneys will bill and clients will pay.

This lack of clarity as to how to move forward with recoveries for this growing service area means some firms recover double what other firms do.

Mattern provides the industry’s only unbiased approach to your firm’s e-Discovery and litigation support charge-back models, powered by the industry’s only benchmarking of this service area. The first step in optimizing your e-Discovery and Litigation Support recovery model is to know how you compare—and to know how in-house services compare to the crowded market of providers.

With Mattern on your side, firm recoveries increase on average by 35%.

Whether performed in-house, or with a third-party provider, Mattern provides a blueprint for implementing a competitive solution with leading technology, methodologies for reducing costs, and the opportunity to maximize recoverable expenses.

“Mattern did an excellent job of collecting the information they needed. The committee signed off during the meeting on the charge back model we recommended. We are very pleased with the outcome.”

Duane Lites, Director of Litigation Support at Jackson Walker LLP

What do we Deliver to you?

Mattern assists firms with transforming litigation support departments from cost centers to revenue-generating centers by conducting a full assessment of current workflows, benchmarking chargeback rates and models against industry peers, while helping firms determine whether in house, outsourced, or hybrid e-Discovery and litigation support solutions will deliver the most value.

  • A current-state assessment including how well your litigation support (e-Discovery) costs and contractual terms and conditions are performing relative to your peers and the industry
  • If it’s determined that outsourcing these services will yield the best solution, Mattern manages the Request for Proposal process and negotiates terms and conditions that bring the most cost-effective labor and technology solution
  • Alternative pricing models for improved recovery of costs, e.g. unit, hourly, flat fee
  • Focus group outcomes conducted with billing attorneys to review various pricing models for feedback/viability
