Lighthouse Introduces Proactive Litigation Preparedness Planning with eDiscovery Playbook


January 29, 2013

New service enables clients to enhance the overall quality of their conduct leading up to and throughout litigation, improve data access, and avoid delayed productions and other sanctionable behaviors.

NEW YORK, NY (January 29, 2013)- Lighthouse, a leader in technology-enabled eDiscovery services, today announced the launch of eDiscovery Playbook, a consulting service that transforms eDiscovery into a pragmatic, repeatable business process that reduces risk and minimizes business interruptions for clients.

Lighthouse Playbook is designed to help corporations with growing litigation portfolios develop an all-inclusive eDiscovery management strategy that is tailored to their business. By instituting a litigation readiness plan, clients improve their overall pre-litigation conduct, gain greater control over their data and avoid delayed productions and associated sanctions.

"Lighthouse reviewed our internal eDiscovery procedures, identified our collections pain points and helped us implement an eDiscovery Playbook," said Jeff Christianson, executive vice president and general counsel, F5 Networks. "We are now developing more efficient processes where roles will be more clearly defined so that we can confidently execute on a repeatable e Discovery process in future litigation."

Organizations failed to produce required information in more than 30 percent of ESI requests in 2012, according to Symantec's 2012 Information Retention and eDiscovery Survey. Those surveyed indicated these failures resulted in the inability to make timely decisions, damaged reputations, compromised legal positions, fines, court sanctions, and raised profiles as litigation targets.

"With electronic data growing exponentially and scrutiny of eDiscovery conduct on the rise, effective, proactive litigation preparation and execution is more important than ever," said Debora Motyka Jones, director of product strategy, Lighthouse. "Our litigation readiness plan combines comprehensive, interdisciplinary focus with proven eDiscovery models and best practices gleaned from our work on more than 5,000 matters with Fortune 100 and Am Law 100 clients. The result is a pragmatic, repeatable eDiscovery plan that is customized to each client's specific needs and capabilities."

Lighthouse Playbook is available immediately at a starting price of $7,500. Please contact for more information.
