Legal Hold & Litigation Readiness
End-to-End Data Management from Information Governance to Litigation
The legal hold process is not limited to holding the critical documents related to lawsuit. It also requires management of the material involved to make the process work efficiently. Hence, it is important to have the right software to manage legal holds.
eZManage, Knovos’ comprehensive case and project management solution includes an intuitive Legal Hold module which enables Legal and Compliance departments to easily create, send, and track Legal Holds notifications in a standardized, defensible process. Coupled with integrated case and project management capabilities, eZManage provides a single, centralized solution for managing a case from the issuance of a Legal Hold to the completion of a matter. It provides a holistic repository for tracking case related details from start to finish.
With eZManage, Legal and Compliance departments can build and reuse custom templates for Legal Holds that are specific to an anticipated or ongoing matter, strengthening consistency and saving time. The standardization allows Legal and Compliance departments to defensibly prepare for any litigation, while the flexibility allows them to easily modify templates to capture uniquely matter specific information.
Adding to the efficiencies gained by using a template based notification system, Legal and Compliance departments are also afforded complete transparency in tracking custodian responses to each Legal Hold Notification. Once the Legal Hold notification is sent, eZManage captures all activity relating to the notification, including when the notification was first issued, custodian acknowledgement of the requirements, automated reminders for acknowledgement and/or escalation options as needed. The communication activity audit ensures Legal and Compliance departments have a record of adherence, preventing negligent treatment of evidence, and increasing compliance. Additional eZManage Legal Hold features allow Legal and Compliance departments to easily reissue legal hold notifications on a regular schedule, increasing defensibility.
Now, managing the legal hold details is not enough. In the modern enterprise structure, where overwhelming amount of diverse data exists, the execution of legal hold can be a complex procedure and hence it should be automated.
