May MALSP Meeting - Retention, Collection, and the Risks in Modern eDiscovery
Law Firms and Corporate legal departments are dealing with a myriad of data sources more than ever before. Legacy systems that are being sunset but continue to be maintained for regulatory or litigation purposes to new collaboration platforms that blur the edge of work and social communication. We hope to explore how companies and firms are handling this technology and operational transition as COVID policies become permanent.
