This CLE program is tailored for in-house attorneys and their colleagues in IT, Risk, Compliance, and related business units that may be involved in litigation. Our program will discuss strategies, checklists, tools, and best practices for forensically preserving and collecting data from platforms such as Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube. Our panel of experts includes an in-house professional, a forensic expert, and a practicing litigator. Our panelists will provide practical pointers for meeting the challenges presented by these platforms and, in turn, strategies for avoiding potentially devasting sanctions for data preservation violations of obligations in litigation. They will also address managing client expectations throughout the preservation and collection process, which otherwise can be daunting. The COVID-19 environment has accelerated the trend towards more robust means for conducting business remotely and virtually. Many businesses have implemented work-from-home directives for employees and switched over to routine video-conferencing for meetings. Our speakers will explore how to respond to these changes with litigation obligations to preserve and collect potentially relevant data in mind. Addressing these issues at the front end can save a lot of grief for businesses at the back end when they find themselves thrust into litigation.
