If you’re wondering whether you should issue a litigation hold, the answer is most likely yes. Contact us today to review your options. The consequences for failing to issue a litigation hold can be severe.
The issuance of a litigation hold is not an easy process, and those going through the process must take their responsibilities seriously. Whitehouse & Cooper’s attorneys can work with you to identify key individuals who might hold information related to the litigation. We will ask a series of questions about how your business operates and the technology you utilize. Do your employees use smart phones or perform company business on home computers? When did you last reuse backup media or when do you plan to do so? Let’s discuss these items in detail and identify other areas your company may need to address in its litigation hold.
Once you have issued a litigation hold, Whitehouse & Cooper can help you maintain your obligations while it is in effect. If your employees are busy earning money for the company, a simple reminder email many months after issuing a litigation hold might not be enough. We can help you find a way to continue utilizing your technology without the unnecessary risk of accidentally changing or deleting data.
The firm can also discuss with you how to determine when your litigation hold is complete and what to do once it is. Don’t forget that unrelated litigation occurring after the issuance of a hold might require the preservation of currently held information.
