Canon, Oasis Forge eDiscovery Partnership

By Paula Bernier

Canon Discovery Services and Oasis Data Solutions have forged a partnership through which the former company will offer the latter organization’s eDiscovery solutions. As a result, Canon clients will be able to choose between Canon’s proprietary CaseData platform and KCura’s Relativity platform.

A vendor of vendors, Oasis offers eDiscovery services to litigation support vendors and eDiscovery consultants. Canon provides outsourced document management and eDiscovery services.

“Oasis is excited to partner with Canon Discovery Services,” says Andy Kennedy, Executive Vice President of Oasis.  “Canon's list of services, global footprint, and world-class service organization is a perfect complement to our eDiscovery technology platform.”

Canon’s services in this vein include analysis, culling, discovery consulting and project management, electronically stored information processing, forensics and data collection, and paper-based discovery services. Its customers include 32 of the 2016 Am Law 1000 firms.

According to a 2015 logikull article, discovery accounts for between 20 and 50 percent of litigation expenses in civil cases that go to discovery. About 60 percent of federal civil cases involve discovery. Approximately 60 percent of state civil cases require discovery. Discovery is part of something like 60 percent of federal criminal cases. And about 10 percent of state criminal cases involve significant discovery.

Logikull reports that discovery costs for criminal proceedings are about a tenth of those in civil cases. And discovery for state cases is half the cost of discovery in federal cases, no matter what kind of a case is involved.

The piece went on to say that “some estimates peg preservation costs alone for large companies to be upward of $2 million per year.” And it noted that Eli Lilly’s general counsel recently spent about $40 million just for email archiving for preservation purposes.

Meanwhile, a February 2016 article on the LexisNexis Business of Law Blog says that most Fortune 1000 companies spend between $5 million and $10 million each year on eDiscovery, and several companies spent as much as $30 million on this ticket item in 2014.
