Crowne Plaza Downtown -- Houston, Texas

TOPIC: Implementing Effective Data Retention and Litigation Holds to Reduce Risk in the Energy Sector


Energy and utilities companies face a variety of legal challenges, from environmental lawsuits to evolving government regulations. Investigation and litigation creates eDiscovery requests that can impact the entire organization, and involve hundreds of custodians and data sources across multiple locations. IQPC's Conference on eDiscovery for Oil and Gas, focuses on eDiscovery and retention specifically for the highly regulated and litigious energy sector.

Within the eDiscovery process, legal hold is one of the most misunderstood practices. As part of a panel, StoredIQ's Vice President of Business Development, will discuss risk reduction through effective data retention and litigation hold practices. Panelists include Russell Miller, Senior Counsel for Anadarko Petroleum Company and John Ben Blackburn, Assistant General Counsel with Martin Midstream Partners, L.P. In this session, attendees will learn:

--  How to properly and effectively implement a litigation hold
--  The best practices for document collection
--  The biggest risk to organizations in failing to meet the legal hold
--  How a failure to preserve data through methods other than sending a
    hold notice has been held to be gross negligence
--  How the courts have repeatedly sanctioned companies which fail to
    comply with the preservation obligation because of ineffective processes
--  What energy corporations need to do to establish successful processes
--  Properly notifying third parties of their duty to retain documents
--  Why legal hold notices are not enough
--  The risks of custodian self-collection
