An Integrated Framework to Implement a Repeatable and Defensible Legal Hold Process
Orlando, FL - ( Marketwire - August 20, 2007) - At the ILTA Conference, Exterro, a leading provider of advanced discovery management technology, announced the expansion of its Exterro Legal Hold Management module. The module is designed to arm corporations and law firms with a framework to implement a repeatable and defensible legal hold process. It seamlessly integrates with HR & LDAP systems and other custodial systems, and enables the automation, management and tracking of the legal hold. Additionally, it enables custodian and data source mapping and the management of multiple holds across matters. During the ILTA Conference (Aug. 20-23, 2007), Exterro is demonstrating the Legal Hold Module at Booth #613. Private demonstrations are also available by calling David Haines, EVP Strategy @ (415) 630-0016 or Peter Renault, Director of Business Development @ (503) 597-7080.
"Large corporate clients, particularly in highly regulated industries such as Financial Services, Insurance, Pharmaceutical, Healthcare and Energy find today's legal hold solutions fraught with inherent limitations, capturing only the hold and collection process in the best scenarios, and not cost effective," said David Haines, EVP of Strategy & Development at Exterro. "Corporations have been forced to create home-grown solutions that don't scale and often times don't meet their needs."
"The discovery phase in any particular case may unfold over many months or even years. As such, it is essential to have a process that is both structured, to capture and preserve documents, and flexible enough to assist corporate counsel in fulfilling their obligations in a legal hold scenario or actual production," according to Robert Carey, Esq., Chair of the Labor & Employment Group, Tonkon Torp LLP. "Exterro has created a secure and cost-effective web-based platform that automates the discovery management process."
Avoiding today's legal hold pitfalls:
- Organizations are required to preserve evidence when litigation or investigations are anticipated and need to be better prepared. The need to update legal hold procedures and processes has never been more important, starting with document retention policies, data-source mapping, and cataloging where potentially responsive information resides.
- Exterro Legal Hold module eliminates human error, generates faster response time for litigation requests, and decreases risk and exposure to sanctions. A complete feature list can be found at: https://www.exterro.com/solutions/legalHold.exterro
