As we all know, corporate law departments have a duty to preserve evidence when they are notified the company is being sued or when there is a reasonable chance the company is going to be sued. What follows is the important and detailed process of issuing a litigation or legal hold.
This week, during our latest martindale.com Connected event, we will be discussing and examining the legal hold process. The event will feature exclusive white papers, blogs, webinar recordings, and a martindale.com Connected Lawcast, our ongoing podcast series.
You can be part of all the event happenings by joining the Corporate Lawyer Network Group today. We’ve already uploaded some of the event’s exclusive content into the group’s file library. Some articles and white papers waiting for you include:
- Leveraging Technology To More Effectively Manage And Track Litigation Holds by Edward “Ted” Best, Esq., director of product management for LexisNexis CounselLink
- Nowhere to Hide: Courts Place Responsibility for Managing Legal Holds on Shoulders of Corporate Executives by Joshua P. Rosenberg, Esq., senior director of strategy and operations at LexisNexis
- Litigation Hold Memorandum by Marla Bergman, Christopher O’Neil; Editor: Carole Basri
White papers and articles are great, of course, but we’ve also turned to multimedia to examine the legal hold process a bit deeper. First, I recently conducted a martindale.com Connected Lawcast interview with Mr. Rosenberg and Michael R. Arkfeld, Esq., speaker, author and consultant. The lawcast will be available in the Corporate Lawyer Network Group later this week.
In the meantime, you can catch Mr. Rosenberg and Mr. Arkfeld discuss the legal hold process by watching the recording of a recent LexisNexis webinar, which covers, among other things:
- The new regulatory requirements for legal holds and recent watershed cases that reveal a discernable pattern placing the responsibility to manage legal holds squarely with corporate executives.
- The impact of the current regulatory climate and the potential consequences—including jail time—for failure to comply, and how to avoid the common pitfalls.
- Best practices for compliance, including how to use technology to help your law department get, and stay, in compliance with the current regulatory demands.
The webinar recording now is available inside the Corporate Lawyer Network Group.
