A recent decision, Pension Committee of the University of Montreal Pension Plan v. Banc of America Securities provides companies and counsel with meaningful guidance for evaluating whether steps taken to preserve evidence are reasonable.

The compliance challenges companies now face are far-reaching. The new preservation requirements will impact strategic, technological and human resources companywide. Companies and counsel must fully understand the expanded e-discovery case law in order to ensure compliance.

This program will examine the Pension Committee decision and its implications, explain the analytical framework for preservation of ESI and assessing culpable conduct, and offer best practices for litigation holds and preservation of ESI.
