Seminar Description

Managers have long known that litigation is an unwelcome intrusion on the lives and productivity of employees and managers.  But get ready for the next wave: Discovery of electronic evidence is raising the interference to a whole new  level.  Companies now have to be ready to preserve and produce emails, documents, voicemails and all other forms of data that might be relevant.  The preservation of this evidence might have to start long before litigation is filed, even before the company retains counsel to advise on a potential dispute.  That means managers need to be alert to litigation risks and prepared to preserve potentially relevant evidence.
