St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
As the corporate legal function continues to evolve, the general counsel and other legal professionals recognize the need to institute best practice standards commonly found in other business functions. Jordan Lawrence, an Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Alliance partner, recently announced the first of its kind, industry-specific standards for records retention with the release of Safe Standards for Retention℠. This innovative, one-of-a-kind solution allows a company’s legal department to mitigate significant risks and reduce costs by establishing document retention rules using industry best practices.
“Government inquiries, eDiscovery and compliance obligations – the top issues that keep general counsel up at night – begin and end with records, yet establishing sound rules for record retention is frequently a struggle for in-house counsel,” said James A. Merklinger, Vice President and General Counsel for the Association of Corporate Counsel. "Our members welcome an efficient and affordable solution, like Jordan Lawrence's new Safe Standards for Retention, to this universal challenge."
Safe Standards for Retention℠ provides industry specific standards for record type names, descriptions and retention periods along with a comprehensive scheduling logic, regulating authorities and business considerations built on 25 years of real-life experience and it is affordable for a company of any size.
“No matter the size of a company, the general counsel, compliance officers and corporate secretaries can use this product to meet legal requirements,” said Jordan Lawrence Executive Vice President Marty Provin. “Setting policy for records retention is the first step in addressing eDiscovery costs and a host of information governance challenges.”
Safe Standards for Retention is provided through a license and comes with full support of Jordan Lawrence’s knowledgeable support team.
