How to create a corporate e-discovery readiness program (Part 1)

Providing context for and highlighting the core components of an e-discovery roadmap

E-discovery landscapes vary widely between industries, within industries among competitors and even within corporate families. Unfortunately, expectations of defensibility, operational efficiency and best practices in e-discovery are not bound by corporate charters. Increasingly, expectations of operational maturity and e-discovery readiness are not limited by jurisdiction or venue. The growing expertise of the bench and bar now makes it imperative that corporate counsel manage an e-discovery readiness program that strategically leverages current best practices, innovative processes and new technologies against the corporate content-discovery life cycle.

In this first of six articles on corporate e-discovery readiness, we will provide context for and highlight the core components of an e-discovery roadmap.
