Article: How Multi-Matter Repositories Can Cut Corporate Legal Costs

For corporations that want to rein in litigation costs, multi-matter repositories make a lot of sense — especially for corporations that have large quantities of electronically stored information and multiple legal matters.

And when a new case comes along, you get a running start out of the gate.
