The expert panel will include Mark Sableman, Partner at Thompson Coburn LLP, to address the legal considerations and Rebecca Perry, Director of Professional Services of Jordan Lawrence, to explain how to develop defensible rules. The event, hosted by Thompson Coburn, is scheduled for April 17, 2014 at the Sheraton Clayton Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, MO. Registration begins at 3:30pm, and the program will be followed by a reception with food and drink from 5-6:30pm.
In the age of eDiscovery, record retention is extremely important from a legal standpoint, and from a business standpoint. Businesses find themselves trying to walk the fine line between what is enough to protect themselves legally, and what is too much from a business cost perspective. How does a business find the safe – and cost-effective – middle ground?
To meet legal obligations, all companies must have a retention schedule that provides the time periods and related procedures for routine disposal of obsolete records that have met regulatory obligations and valid business requirements. A company’s retention schedule ensures that email and other records are kept as long as legally and operationally required and that obsolete records are disposed of in a systematic and controlled manner.
“By putting rules and processes in place, companies can find the middle ground on protecting themselves legally without the added costs and risks of retaining too much information,” Rebecca Perry, Director of Professional Services at Jordan Lawrence.
