Legal Operations/LEGAL HOLDS
A legal hold is the process where a company has to retain files pending litigation or anticipated litigation, because they may be relevant to such litigation. Legal hold software is often embedded in or integrates with eDiscovery software. Law firms submit legal hold requests, monitor compliance with legal holds, interview custodians and track progress of requests. Law firms are also required to respond to legal hold requests when they are issued in relation to pending litigation involving the firm.
