The key to decreasing discovery and review costs is to defensibly delete data that is no longer required for legal or business purposes - Rebecca Perry, Director of Professional Services at Jordan Lawrence.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
Today, Jordan Lawrence, an Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Alliance Partner, along with law firm Kean Miller LLP announced they will sponsor a January 23rd ACC CLE luncheon on a proactive approach to information management. The presentation will feature Rebecca Perry, Director of Professional Services at Jordan Lawrence, a leading provider of records management and information governance solutions and Trey McCowan, Partner at Kean Miller LLP. This session will discuss how in-house counsel can lead an initiative that reduces the amount of data their companies have by as much as 70%.
Companies who are frequently engaged in eDiscovery exercises, investigations or audits have begun to understand that the ultimate answer to decreasing costs and risks while meeting regulatory and legal obligations is to take a more proactive approach to information management. An approach that does not include expansion of information storage but instead relies on defensibly deleting data that is no longer required for legal or business purposes.
When companies “clean-house” and proactively and defensibly eliminate obsolete records and information prior to litigation, the results are dramatically lower discovery and review costs. Even companies that have infrequent litigation can reduce costs substantially for storage and be better prepared should they find themselves in litigation or an investigation.
