Customers Cite E-Discovery Best Practices

Byte and Switch, February 27, 2008

Time and time again we’ve seen articles that discuss the vast number of companies that are not familiarizing themselves with e-discovery, whether it’s because they don’t understand the concept or because they find it too difficult to get their heads’ around. However this time we’re highlighting a piece that focuses on the opposite: companies that have in fact implemented e-discovery practices within their own environments. After all, it has been more than one year since the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure have been updated, and business leaders have a lot to say about what works and what doesn’t. Here are some of their words of advice:

  • 1. Make email archiving a priority: Don’t wait until it’s too late to have a system in place.
  • 2. Don’t assume your e-discovery needs are static: Your level of litigation readiness won’t be sufficient forever.
  • 3. Explore storage options: Don’t just stick to what you’re always done.
  • 4. Be vertically aware: Understand the trends and requirements of your industry.

For details on what companies have learned first-hand about the ups and downs of e-discovery procedures, check this article out. There might be some situations you can relate to, and who knows maybe you’ll learn something new too.
