Litigation Support: Document Forensics and Legal Holds

One of our authors touches on the collaborative process that is undertaken by her firm's records, litigation support and IT departments in managing legal holds and subpoenas directed to the firm. Not surprisingly, this white paper reflects the combined efforts of ILTA's Litigation Support, Records Management and Law Department Peer Groups.

The complexities of pending litigation can't be confined to one department in the firm or law department; processes, systems and well-trained people will contribute to the effective management of time and resources and the ultimate outcome.

Mary Pat Poteet of DLA Piper LLP is ILTA's Vice President for the Litigation Support Peer Group. She provided direction for the development of content in this publication, the focus of which is twofold: forensics and legal holds.  Sally Letteri of United States Steel Corporation, Vice President for ILTA's Law Department Peer Group, reached out to her constituency, and the great contributions from our corporate law departments are reflected in the bylines you'll find. And Charlene Wacenske of Morrison & Foerster LLP, our Peer Group Vice President in the Records arena, provided her own expertise for managing legal holds. Read and enjoy.
