"This book couldn't be better timed. eDiscovery has been subjected to much frenzy resulting in large and often haphazard corporate expenditure. Prashant Dubey and Sam Panarella are experienced practitioners who rightly stress that a successful eDiscovery program is as much about human dynamics and change management as it is about navigating the intersection of technology, law, and business. Litigation Readiness is a must-read for any practitioner in the eDiscovery trenches as well as any executive charged with leading a corporate eDiscovery program."
--Ronke Ekwensi, Vice President eDiscovery, Pfizer Inc.
"This is an extremely useful guide for in-house counsel who want to proactively address the considerable challenges and risks associated with responding to eDiscovery requests in an age where effective information management is increasingly difficult and complex. The authors' approach to the topic is both interesting and informative, and their extensive experience in helping businesses develop effective processes to manage these risks is clearly apparent. Much of their guidance is also germane to addressing other legal and compliance risks faced by businesses."
--Eva Kripalani, Legal and Business Consulting Services, Former Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Knowledge Learning Corporation
"In-house law departments have long understood the need to make eDiscovery less expensive, more efficient, and more compliant. The efforts, led largely by lawyers and IT specialists, have been monumental and costly, but the results have been mediocre at best. Bringing their years of experience to bear, Prashant Dubey and Sam Panarella recognize eDiscovery for what it really is -- a BUSINESS issue, not a legal or IT one. They approach it by applying proven business methods, and innovative, practical solutions. Litigation Readiness is a fabulous tool and a must-read for anyone trying to tackle the monster called eDISCOVERY."
--Thomas Sabatino, Former Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Schering-Plough Corporation
"The book is an excellent resource and should be added to most legal information collections, particularly those in private law practices. It is a must-have for libraries in firms with corporate clients or for any library supporting corporate counsel, and it is a valuable resource for academic law libraries as well, particularly given the increased emphasis on practice-oriented classes in the law school curriculum."
--Christine I. Hepler, Law Library Journal
