A Warm Fire, a Hot Drink and a New Legal Hold Guide

Snow flakes, steaming drinks and friendly gatherings are some of the best parts of December – and no classic winter gathering is complete without a roaring fire. But practitioners know not all fires bring great memories: legal hold wildfires and resulting sanctions can dampen winter joy. Fortunately, Kroll Ontrack has just released a newly updated guide, Preventing a Legal Hold Wildfire, so that nothing ruins your winter delights.

The Sanctions Outside are Frightful

The December 1, 2015 FRCP amendments and this year’s court decisions, such as GN Netcom v. Plantronics, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 93299 (D. Del. July 12, 2016), reiterate the importance of the duty to preserve electronically stored information (ESI). Recognizing your company’s or client’s duty to preserve, when it begins, what it entails and when it ends are key strategies that can save your organization time, money and stress.

But Proper Preservation is so Delightful

The newly updated guide from Kroll Ontrack, Preventing a Legal Hold Wildfire, has tips and tricks so that you do not get caught in the flames. This compact guide features 2016 case law and gives practitioners the starting points that they need to make their own strategies for navigating legal holds.
