Here are the Results of the Inaugural Best of Corporate Counsel Survey: eDiscovery Trends

Hard to believe that this is their inaugural survey of the top providers to the in-house corporate legal marketplace, but Corporate Counsel just released its first Best of Corporate Counsel results and those results include rankings in a few eDiscovery categories.

As they note in their introductory letter, Best of Corporate Counsel highlights the businesses and individuals who garnered the most votes from members of the in-house legal community from law-firm performance, data management, legal research to technology, finance, outsource services and more.  The Corporate Counsel community was notified of the ballot through direct emails, print advertising, social media updates and online advertisements across American Lawyer Media (ALM)’s network of websites.  The ballot consisted of 55 categories and over 1,500 votes were cast in this initial survey.

The survey results start here and span eight pages with advertisements interspersed throughout (winners like to gloat, after all).  Here are the results of some of the notable eDiscovery categories:
