“Legal hold” is the term used to describe a litigant’s common law duty to preserve information and things that may be relevant to litigation or reasonably anticipated litigation. The Legal Hold obligation has been in existence
for decades, but the landmark 2003 decision in Zubulake vs. UBS Warburg has brought the topic into the limelight of litigation issues.

The Zubulake case drew attention to the fact that the shift from a paper world to a world in which technology dominates the way information is created, stored, transmitted, shared and otherwise dispositioned has added a great deal of complexity to the seemingly simple act of preserving information for legal hold.

This report lays out the framework for developing an effective legal hold program.
