Improve your legal hold process and reduce risk
The judicial system is firmly rooted in the belief that parties to litigation should share documents and other information prior to trial. Each party has a duty to identify, locate and preserve information and other evidence that is relevant to that specific litigation to avoid the intentional or inadvertent destruction (spoliation) of relevant evidence that might be used at trial.
Yet, many legal and IT professionals still rely on spreadsheets, emails and other manual processes to issue and manage holds, a risky and highly inefficient process. One simple mistake, such as neglecting to contact a key custodian or failing to get an acknowledgment, could lead to lost evidence and sanctions for spoliation.
