Dykema Launches Discovery Readiness Assessment Program (DRAP)

February 23, 2012

BLOOMFIELD HILLS—Dykema Gossett PLLC, a leading national law firm, today announced the launch of the new Discovery Readiness Assessment Program (DRAP) designed to control discovery costs before a summons, subpoena or investigation strikes. By carefully assessing the generation, life cycle management, storage and location of data, a DRAP facilitates quick and effective production of paper and electronic documents.

A DRAP helps companies minimize the risk of incurring devastating and costly sanctions for failure to preserve data promptly and properly. Additionally, with DRAP, companies will reduce the cost of carrying and maintaining unnecessary data as well as minimizing future discovery costs. A DRAP also provides a rapid deployment plan that allows legal and IT department personnel to promptly execute a litigation hold that identifies and freezes potentially responsive data.

There is no time better than the present to control future discovery costs. In today’s lean environment, enterprises have far less flexibility to control costs and risks once an investigation or litigation hits; and the accompanying strain on internal resources and legal preservation obligations makes implementation of a day-to-day data management program nearly impossible.

Dykema is partnering with Lumen Legal in launching the DRAP. Lumen Legal is an innovative direct hire, contract staffing and document review company with offices in 12 major metropolitan areas across the United States. For more information on Lumen Legal, please visit:
