Advised Fortune 200 Client on Email Preservation Strategies

  • When a Fortune 200 client needed help assessing its legal hold practices, it turned to our firm. Our client's objective was to develop automated processes for segregating email subject to legal hold and for enforcing its retention policy for email not subject to legal hold. Our approach included providing guidance on enforcing the retention policy, assessing legal holds inventory, developing search terms, conducting sampling, and performing due diligence and on the process for segregating email subject to legal holds. Through these efforts, our client was able to develop a framework to implement reasonable and defensible preservation practices as part of its enterprise information governance and litigation readiness strategies.

Crafted and Refined Defensible Information Disposal Processes for Fortune 100 Client

  • As part of our client's enterprise records management program, the client asked for advice on how to manage a significant amount of backup tape data. Working collaboratively with the client's legal, IT, and records management professionals, we developed a systematic approach to assess whether the tapes may be eligible for disposition. Our approach included identifying the team, assessing internal policies and practices, implementing project management practices to map workflow and assess information, and providing guidance and legal analysis on retention and disposal. Through these efforts, our client was able to reduce risks associated with maintaining information that is no longer needed for business or legal purposes, and to significantly reduce its records storage costs.
