Sometimes proportionality is forgotten in the rush of ediscovery deadlines. But counsel need to make educated decisions—not only about everything that can go wrong, but about the cost of avoiding every conceivable risk. Every case presents a different profile of risk and potential cost; the right approach is both proportional to the stakes in litigation and consistent with the client’s broader objectives.
Lighthouse’s legal and technology experts bring years of practical experience to consult with our clients. We encourage a realistic approach to discovery—not one based on risk avoidance alone. We are keenly aware of the need to mitigate cost as well as risk and we apply our expertise to help our clients prioritize objectives and find solutions that are both cost-effective and legally defensible. Services include:
- eDiscovery Program Assessment and Playbook – Lighthouse developed the eDiscovery Program Assessment to measure the condition of your ediscovery program and provide high-level recommendations to bring your processes into compliance with best practices. With an eDiscovery Playbook our experts dive deeper into documenting the ediscovery lifecycle through a comprehensive, pragmatic, and actionable plan that is specifically tailored to the current state of your program and the needs of your business.
- Social Media & BYOD Policies – Lighthouse can assist your organization in preventing common pitfalls of social media misuse.
