CounselLink® Legal Hold
In an environment of increasingly stringent regulatory demands, corporate legal departments are faced with the monumental task of preserving actual and potential evidence—or risking sanctions, evidentiary exclusions, adverse inferences by a jury, unfavorable judgments, or even jail time. Identifying and notifying custodians about this duty to preserve requires careful management and tracking.
The legal hold notification process is complex and labor intensive, but it’s easily managed when you use CounselLink® Legal Hold. As part of the CounselLink solution, this component is designed to help legal departments like yours streamline and manage legal holds. The software automates the legal hold notification process from start to finish.
CounselLink Legal Hold helps you:
- Improve accuracy, speed, and efficiency in creating and issuing written holds to all involved parties in anticipation of pending litigation.
- Ensure that you preserve information stored on all organization-owned equipment, even equipment used by former employees through integration with your HR system. This helps track custodians joining or leaving the organization so you can notify IT departments proactively and preserve information as appropriate.
- Increase efficiency and accuracy by automatically issuing and tracking reminder notices to custodians that they still have a duty to preserve.
- Verify more easily that proper hold notice processes are followed—All legal hold information is available for audit reports, statistics, and tracking of trends.
