    Very interesting! I started working as an independent consultant 3 years ago. I started consulting based on client need. For the reasons discussed, many firms can‘t afford a solid e-Discovery professional or they have 1 person on staff but that person needs assistance during peak times. Relativity One may change the vendor market a little, I in no way think it will completely vanish. There are still steep ownership costs for Relativity One and many factors will impact the market. I like the trend and I like where it is going and mostly I LOVE working for myself. I don‘t intend to ever work for a law firm, vendor or corporation on a permanent basis unless I am forced to. The other aspect is that the client market has been demanding vendor changes for years and vendors have refused. This leaves solutions like Relativity One and Independent Consults to help solve the problems that law firms and vendors have when working together. It‘s never gone it just changes. People move from one place to the other and back again. Love the series. Interested in the next 2 parts!

    Fantastic insight. While the article depicts the trend in the US market, UK, the Middle East and AU still have strong demands for permanent ediscovery staff, both from operational and business development standpoint.
