Legal Holds Revisited

Most companies now have adopted some form of “best practices” to properly handle legal holds. Have you refreshed your legal hold policies and practices to account for the changing legal hold environment brought about by COVID, the increase in remote work, and increased use of collaborative technology? Those issues are addressed in our article on “Traditional Legal Hold Post-COVID:  A Discussion on Best Practices,” published by The Legal Intelligencer. Suggestions include ensuring that hold notices encompass information in new collaboration platforms, identifying remote equipment that may now qualify as unique information sources or repositories, and effectively tracking departing employees who may be hold custodians to ensure that their data continues to be preserved. If you have not recently updated YOUR hold policy and practices it is a good time to consider doing so!
