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.

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
