Preservation of Documents - Legal Hold


iQwest Legal Hold (also known as “preservation orders” or “hold orders”) is designed to help manage electronic data that might be relevant to a legal matter.  A company must preserve records (paper or electronic) when it learns of pending or imminent litigation.  Legal Hold prevents spoliation (destruction, alteration or mutilation of evidence) on paper or electronically stored information (ESI) on the company or any of its employees. 

 

 


iQwest Legal hold will:


  • Prevent Information from being disposed of
  • Eliminate the risk of accidental spoliation
  • Reduce costs associated with preservation and collection
  • Compliance with Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
  • Compliance with State Code of Civil Procedure
  • Manage all aspects related to initiating a legal hold
    • Sending notices
    • Conducting interviews
    • Preserving data in place or in a separate repository
    • Releasing or disposing of data at the end of a case

 

Legal hold includes any information stored electronically:


  • Writings
  • Drawings
  • Graphs
  • Charts
  • Photographs
  • Sound recordings
  • Images
  • Other data or data compilations stored in any medium from which information can be obtained either directly or, if necessary, after translation by the responding party into a reasonably usable form.
