Have you ever felt daunted by the prospect of issuing a litigation hold? If so, you are not alone — particularly in today’s dynamic legal environment, where even judges within the same judicial district disagree as to what is required to satisfy the duty to preserve evidence and avoid spoliation sanctions. Please join us at Gibbons Fifth Annual E-Discovery Conference, where we will deconstruct an effective litigation hold notice paragraph-by-paragraph, explaining why each element is included and how to tailor hold notices to any litigation. We will also explain recent developments in this area of the law, which you can draw on to position your company to effectively issue and administer litigation holds, avoid game-changing spoliation sanctions and return the focus to litigating matters on the merits.
We are privileged to have the Honorable John J. Hughes, U.S.M.J. (Ret.), joining this discussion, marking this esteemed jurist’s third year participating in the firm’s annual e-discovery conference. Joining Judge Hughes will be Gibbons Director and Chair of the firm’s E-Discovery Task Force, Mark Sidoti, and Melissa DeHonney, an associate in Gibbons Business & Commercial Litigation Department who is also a member of the firm’s E-Discovery Task Force and an editor of this blog.
