Good-faith, reasonable, and proportional document preservation should be top of mind for any entity trying to satisfy its discovery obligations and mitigate the risks associated with failing to preserve potentially relevant, discoverable electronically stored information. Given the increasing volume and variety of ESI, determining what to preserve—and when to do so—is vital. This panel discussion, featuring four experienced litigators and e-discovery professionals from Pepper Hamilton, will use the recently announced Sedona Conference Commentary on Legal Holds, Second Edition as a starting point for a discussion of recent case law and best practices for determining when a legal hold should be imposed, the types of data to be preserved and what steps should be taken to create an effective and defensible preservation program. As they will emphasize, distributing the legal hold is typically only the first step in the process—oversight and periodic refinement are key to its effectiveness.
