Legal Hold Program Development

Can you respond quickly and accurately to information subpoenas and discovery requests?

Managing exceptions to information life cycle rules in record retention schedules is key to assuring responsive information is preserved when dealing with discovery response in case of claims, litigation, audits, or investigations. Chanico will create the policies, tools, and strategies that allow your organization to respond quickly and accurately to information subpoenas and discovery requests without bringing the management of non-affected information to a halt and creating additional risk.

Approach

In setting up a process to deal with legal holds, Chanico considers your litigation profile as well as your current policies, strategies, and approaches to dealing with information requests. We build on what we learn about your organization to draft and deliver a policy about the your company’s stance and individual responsibilities for identifying, managing and responding to discovery requests. Then we build controls and populate the profiles that define the existing legal holds while creating a new model for future legal holds. Finally, we design and deliver an oversight mechanism for managing all aspects of legal holds from recognition and initiation of action management while the issue is active through to removing the holds and releasing information back to routine records life cycle management processing.

Result

We will deliver a legal hold protocol that will allow you to respond quickly and accurately to information subpoenas and discovery requests.  The program we design does all of this without bringing the management of non-affected information management to a stop.
