Electronic Records Management Pioneers Share Their Tips on What Works, What’s Practical, and What Not to Do

Tuesday, February 20, 2007
2:00-4:30PM ET

Don’t miss this Special Counsel telecast event featuring K&L Gates’ partner David Cohen, co-chair of the firm’s Document Analysis Technology Group (DATG) and Records Management practice. 

Program Overview: The new E-discovery rules have had tremendous impact on records management. The complexities are more abundant than ever. The challenges confront all litigators, and the costs are huge.

  • An October 2006 survey revealed that only 7% of corporate counsel view their companies as prepared for the new federal rules governing discovery of electronically stored information and 50% were not even aware the new rules were being enacted.
  • In-house IT personnel are also sounding the alarm as a Dec. 2006 Computer World Survey, 32% of 170 IT managers and staffers surveyed said they aren’t prepared to meet the requirements of the federal edict, 11% said they are somewhat prepared, while 42% said they don’t know the status of their companies’ preparation.
  • This special live audio presentation will help you do more to manage your electronic records. We will be presenting ideas and thoughts from an esteemed panel of innovators and pioneers in the electronic record management field.

This program is appropriate for C level executives, in-house counsel, IT staff, records managers, and outside counsel.  Click here to register or for more information.
