Please join D4 on October 28, 2009 at 12:00 pm Pacific Time and 3:00 PM Eastern Time for the webinar “Out of the Holding Pattern.” To register, please click here.
Recent case law has highlighted the importance of proper implementation of litigation holds. During the summer of 2009, there were many cases that highlighted attorneys and litigants failing in their duty to preserve electronically stored information (ESI). These failures included not enacting litigation holds when required to do so, clients not following preservation obligations, and parties simply ignoring the duty to preserve.
Join John Jablonski, co-author of 7 Steps for Legal Holds of ESI and Other Documents (ARMA 2009), and Joshua Gilliland, D4’s Professional Development Manager and author of the Bow Tie Law Blog, for a discussion of recent case law and best practices for enacting litigation holds. Learn about the trends from the newest cases on the pitfalls in preserving ESI and strategies for success. Webinar attendees will learn the seven steps for an effective litigation hold. This information is pivotal for attorneys, paralegals and corporate records managers in meeting their obligation to preserve ESI.
