Legal Hold, sometimes called Litigation Hold, describes a series of processes put in place to preserve information that may be relevant to an active or anticipated claim. Specifically, Legal Hold is about protecting Electronically Stored Information (ESI) as potential evidence.
Corporate teams that deal with any type of litigation are obligated by the FRCP to preserve evidence. This preservation duty begins when litigation can be reasonably anticipated. The process associated with Legal Hold is fraught with potential errors at every step of the way. As legal teams strive to improve their Legal Hold process, their main focus should be on minimizing the margins for error associated with it.
The duty to preserve is central to the eDiscovery process. The potential consequences of evidence spoliation can be enormous, from fines to de-fault judgements. In this whitepaper, we formulate three distinct maturity stages through which the Legal Hold process is steadily improved.
