e-Discovery Best Practices is an authoritative, insider's perspective on best practices for effective e-discovery. Featuring partners and chairs from some of the nation's leading law firms, these experts guide the reader in evaluating existing policies, understanding current trends, and managing electronic data. From creating a document retention plan to prioritizing a successful defense, these leaders offer strategies for developing policies and instituting training on technologies integral for effective e-discovery. Additionally, these top lawyers give tips for executing litigation, identifying enforcement issues and costs, and avoiding common mistakes. Finally, these experts discuss working with key players, conducting self-tests and audits, and adhering to legal standards. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great legal minds of today, as these experienced lawyers offer up their thoughts around the keys to navigating an increasingly-enforced and rapidly-changing area of law.
Inside the Minds provides readers with proven business intelligence from C-Level executives (Chairman, CEO, CFO, CMO, Partner) from the world's most respected companies nationwide, rather than third-party accounts from unknown authors and analysts. Each chapter is comparable to an essay/thought leadership piece and is a future-oriented look at where an industry, profession or topic is headed and the most important issues for the future. Through an exhaustive selection process, each author was hand-picked by the Inside the Minds editorial board to author a chapter for this book.
