The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is the world's largest organization serving the professional and business interests of attorneys who practice in the legal departments of corporations, associations, nonprofits and other private-sector organizations around the globe.
This program will keep you from being court sanctioned. It will discuss how and when to implement legal holds, what to include in a legal hold to prevent court sanctions, how to make responding to legal hold requests more efficient, and when to hand the ball off to outside counsel. Ever wonder about the structure of a legal hold (what to include, what to leave out), how to initially respond to a legal hold request from an external party in order to retain the ability to negotiate scope and costs in the future, or how to seamlessly hand the claim off to outside litigation counsel? You will find out all of this and also receive examples of good and bad legal holds.
This article shows how you, as a member of the in-house legal department, can determine and implement the best records/information retention and litigation hold policy for your company, so that it can efficiently and properly respond to any inevitable e-discovery request?
