Time: 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EST

CLE credit is available in multiple states. Please see below for full details.

Companies that do not take reasonable steps to preserve relevant information risk sanctions. Companies must swiftly and clearly communicate legal holds to employees that have relevant information so that the employees can take appropriate action to identify, collect, and properly preserve the information, intact and without alteration.

Join Practical Law for a free 75-minute webinar in which Jeffrey Nass, Senior Counsel for eDiscovery with Boehringer Ingelheim, discusses how to effectively train employees on how to collect, preserve, and protect relevant information in their possession, from soup to nuts.

Attendees will learn:

  • Best practices for drafting and communicating a legal hold notice within and outside the US.

  • Effective techniques for training company management and employees on how to identify relevant information.

  • Appropriate methods for document collection to preserve metadata and track the chain of custody.

  • The roles of corporate counsel and outside counsel in the legal hold process.

A brief Q&A session will follow. Reserve your spot today!
