The Cowen Group Announces Results from Ninth Annual eDiscovery & Litigation Support Salary Survey
December 18, 2014
New York City, New York
The Cowen Group is pleased to announce the results from our Ninth Annual eDiscovery & Litigation Support Salary Survey. This year we received 287 results by requesting information directly from professionals at all levels of employment, including technologists, project managers, managers, directors and attorneys. We supplemented our online questionnaire by conducting first person research and integrating data from candidate interviews and placements at the nation’s top law firms, corporations and vendors.
We received responses from over half of the AmLaw 200, and for the first time we expanded our survey to include data and analysis from corporations, vendors, and mid-size law firms. We received 90 responses from corporate participants.
This increased corporate participation reflects a trend we have been predicting for two years that is finally coming to fruition – increasing ownership of discovery function in corporate law departments. While the demand for eDiscovery talent is predicted to remain the same for most organizations in 2015, on average, 30% of firms, vendors and corporations intend to grow their practice groups. As a whole, corporations are predicting the biggest increased demand for analysts, paralegals, eDiscovery attorneys, and consultants.
