Each year our staff tries to find a relevant and meaningful article about topics posted on this website. E-discovery is certainly a topic of major concern for companies to consider today, and , more importantly, to include in that company’s business continuity planning process driven by a business impact analysis of this cybersecurity based potential threat.
Given the increase of activity and violation of e-discovery requirements and findings of financial penalties by the appropriate regulatory bodies, many companies should now make a stronger effort to understand and set the level(s) of risk they are willing to take regarding their preparation or lack thereof in either organizing their records and documents to mitigate this risk or not.
With this point in mind, our staff believes it has found such a posting and would like to point our readers to a recent article posted by Wendy Akbar on the Quarles & Brady website. The title of the original article is “Bill Hamilton’s Seven Deadly Sins of the Rule 26(f) “Meet and Confer” Conference”. **
