Seize the Opportunity to Build a Thriving eDiscovery Business

The value of the global eDiscovery market is projected to reach $18+ billion by 2030.

eDiscovery continues to grow exponentially with no indications of slowing down.

The eDiscovery industry remains highly fragmented with tremendous investment opportunities for serial entrepreneurs, eDiscovery business development professionals and adjacent businesses. The challenge is how these entrepreneurs and businesses address significant expenses on software licenses, IT security and business and operational expertise required to create a successful eDiscovery business. KLD’s Franchise Program solves this dilemma by serving as the ideal incubator for both seasoned business owners and the next generation of legal technology entrepreneurs who are ready to invest in themselves. With its full technology stack including the Nebula Ecosystem, Client Portal, ReadySuite, and a full range of other solutions along the EDRM, KLDiscovery franchisees have a unique opportunity to seize a larger portion of the significant US eDiscovery marketplace.


eDiscovery Market Growth Drivers

icon Data Volume & Format Proliferation
Technology innovation has resulted in growing volumes of data, different types of file formats for eDiscovery, as well as expansion in device types and storage media.
icon Globalisation & Cross-border Matters
Ongoing globalisation has increased business operations and legal complexity, creating country-specific regulations that customers must comply with, thus driving matter volume and complexity.
icon Regulatory Changes
Evolving regulations, particularly around data privacy, are expected to make legal and compliance requirements more onerous, with higher potential downside for non-compliance.
