Millnet has more than 15 years of experience working on international ediscovery matters. Through adopting a consultative approach we identify the best mix of technology and in-house expertise to deliver the optimal solution to our clients’ needs. The ever-present downward pressure on costs and timescales means that we offer solutions that are proportionate, justifiable and affordable. Clients are able to draw upon our considerable resources from initial consultation, assessment of requirements and selection of appropriate technologies, through to provision of technology, expertise and training.
It is a common misconception that ediscovery costs can be unmanageable. We work with our clients to ensure that our pricing structure is transparent and agreed upfront for every stage of the case. We are unique in terms of offering clients a flexible pricing structure and providing capped pricing as required, especially when dealing with BIG data.
We understand the difficulties that lawyers face to get upfront costs approved for ediscovery, therefore at Millnet we can assist by removing this barrier to entry to any client on any case of any size by offering the initial scoping of all the ediscovery elements of your case free of charge as well as providing advice on the defensibility of your ediscovery workflow. We are also available to provide support and consultancy throughout every stage of the process.
Millnet Approach to Cost Estimation and New Engagements
Agreeing on specifications, timescales and costs for ediscovery matters is often an iterative process. Our objective is to be as flexible and transparent as possible. Engagement documentation will typically include a confidentiality agreement, an estimate/proposal attaching Millnet’s terms and conditions and ultimately an engagement letter which references these other documents and provides positive confirmation that Millnet has been instructed to provide the agreed services.
We structure our ediscovery matters by reference to the industry standard Electronic Discovery Reference Model ‘EDRM’. We use the EDRM as a framework within which to structure our understanding of your requirements, our approach, costs and timescales. If required, we can provide a comprehensive list of Millnet’s services categorised by the EDRM stages which may be helpful in the event the scope of the requirements shifts materially from the understanding at the time of preparing this estimate.
We provide leading expertise and technology at a competitive price without compromising on quality of service. We use market leading proven technology platforms including Nuix, Relativity, Encase and Index Engines underpinned by robust and secure infrastructure and processes. The real ‘value add’ however is in the project management and consultancy services Millnet provide to ensure matters run smoothly and our clients mitigate risks and gain tactical advantage on ediscovery matters.
