In terms of e-discovery, the electronic exchange of documents between parties during litigation, an organized database makes all the difference. But no two companies' database needs are alike. Needs can differ based on industry, company size, case flow and more. Without an organized and flexible database, companies are at risk of missing out on cost and time savings, or worse, sharing privileged documents with the opposition.

The biggest mistake companies and law firms make is diving into the database without building and implementing a process.
