"We are thrilled to be working with Yerra Solutions. The expertise of Rajitha and her team and their understanding of the European market, is absolutely unmatched. The improvements made to our legal operations based on their work and recommendations have already contributed significantly to the achievement of our goals to better manage risk while being more efficient. Rajitha's philosophy that a one-size-fits-all approach does not work for complex organisations like ours is obvious in the relationship we have built with Yerra Solutions. They truly take the time to understand our business and craft solutions tailored to our needs, and I expect this partnership to continue to grow and thrive over the long term."
Karin Brühlmann, Head of Controlling, IT & Services Group Patents at F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG
"I have worked with Rajitha and her team on both strategic development and tactical plan implementation on a wide range of law department technologies. The depth and breadth of her knowledge of the subject matter is very impressive and is matched only by the organised and energetic approach she uses to help law departments use technology to add value. Especially impressive is her creativity and energy - she just won't quit on a tough question until she has the right answer for the client. Finally, she has superb people and communication skills which enable her to work very effectively with a wide range of people from an IT specialist to the General Counsel.

FindLaw from Thomson Reuters
FindLaw, a Thomson Reuters business, is the pioneer and leader in online legal information and services for lawyers, businesses, and individuals. FindLaw's roots go back to 1995, when two attorneys compiled a list of Internet resources for a group of law librarians in northern California. The response to the material was so positive they decided to post the information on the Internet.

LegalIT Insider
Since its launch in 1995, Legal IT Insider has become the leading media, information and communications channel in legal technology. They cover and interpret legal IT news from UK & EMEA, the US and APAC regions in a FREE monthly digital newsletter – Legal IT Insider – and also here on the website.

All Things Digital
AllThingsD.com is a Web site devoted to news, analysis and opinion on technology, the Internet and media. But it is different from other sites in this space. It is a fusion of different media styles, different topics, different formats and different sources.

Intellectual Asset Management (IAM)
Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) magazine was launched in July 2003 to address the need for organisations to maximise the value of their IP and other intangibles, and to examine the strategies they can put in place to do this. IAM is unique because it treats IP as a business asset and tool rather than simply as a legal right. With this unequalled appeal to the boardroom, IAM has quickly established itself as the only IP publication that many senior corporate executives read regularly.

Association of Corporate Counsel Europe (ACCE)
ACC Europe serves in-house attorneys in Europe through networking, knowledge sharing, continuing legal education and advocacy on behalf of the in-house profession. ACC Europe is a chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel, the premier association for in-house counsel.
