    Corporate data volumes are growing at an alarming rate, leaving in-house legal departments scrambling to manage a never-ending list of growing e-discovery demands. Without a well-thought-out, defined process, these teams face a virtually impossible, dual-prong mission of managing corporate risk and controlling legal spend. In this webcast, members of Viacom's in-house e-discovery team will discuss how they constructed defensible and effective e-discovery processes. They will share insights on adding internal efficiencies and ensuring overall defensibility.

  • Legal Hold 2.0 for Defensible E-Discovery, May 15, 2013 - 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT
    Even with a basic legal hold tool in place, maintaining a defensible e-discovery process can be a difficult task, particularly for highly litigious organizations. Time and time again, those who think they are prepared are regularly sanctioned by the courts for not being able to demonstrate the necessary steps were taken when issuing, monitoring, tracking and documenting legal holds. Featuring e-discovery experts from Allergan and Shook Hardy & Bacon, this webcast will explore the steps Allergan has taken to create a defensible legal hold process and provide insights into how to implement best practices beyond the basics.

  • Mandatory Requirements for Legal Hold Software, June 3, 2013 - 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT
    According to a recent eDJ Group survey, "almost a third (of respondents) track the (legal hold) process via spreadsheets, while another third don't track the process at all." As a result, many organizations leave themselves exposed to inefficiency, increased internal costs and judicial sanctions. In conjunction with the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA), experts from Vestas-American Wind Technology, United Technologies Corporation and Exterro who will discuss mandatory requirements for creating, managing and maintaining a defensible legal hold process.
