Brett Burney, Burney Consultants, and Marta Farensbach, Sherpa Software, describe how small and medium size companies can effectively manage their electronic data so they are better prepared for litigation. This white paper will detail some best practices in handling e-Discovery inquiries and how to work with IT professionals and outside legal counsel.
Litigation is inevitable in today's business climate, regardless of the size of your company. It is also expensive, primarily due to the massive amount of electronic information (e.g. email, documents, etc.) that must be collected and reviewed in e-Discovery litigation. Larger companies that have had to endure multiple lawsuits have developed policies and procedures to keep the litigation costs under control. But small and mid-sized businesses find it difficult to justify the time and cost required to plan for litigation.
The ultimate goal of any company should be to reliably manage electronic data and have a litigation preparedness plan in place to keep costs low and reduce unwanted exposure and risk to the business. View this white paper to learn how to accomplish these goals.
