Join us for a special Legaltech New York preview of the new Catalyst Legal Hold platform. 

It’s been almost 15 years since Judge Shira Scheindlin announced in Zubulake v. UBS Warburg that whenever an organization reasonably anticipates litigation, it has a duty to undertake reasonable and good faith actions to preserve potentially discoverable information. Since then, courts across the United States have affirmed the broad scope of this duty and cautioned that reasonable anticipation can occur long before suit is filed or a subpoena is served.

As a result, a new industry evolved to go beyond managing legal holds themselves to providing a platform for investigations, collection, processing, search, culling and preservation.

Today, smart legal professionals are adopting automated legal hold to manage their cases, communicate with custodians and cut e-discovery bills through an integrated collection and processing platform. In addition, your counterparts are slashing legal spend while reducing the risks of sanctions for spoliation in the bargain.

Our speakers will show you the Catalyst platform and cover:

  • A primer on legal hold law
  • Using Catalyst Legal Hold for initial notifications, surveys and investigations
  • How to track notices and compliance across the globe without leaving your desk
  • Automated collection tools to profile and secure data for processing and secure archives
  • Ways to search preservation archives to reduce the volumes of data promoted to discovery review

All those registered will receive a link to the recording and slides, and the Catalyst’s new Legal Hold Handbook for Smart People.
