The Importance of e-Discovery Compliance

by on May 14, 2008

Read an article today regarding e-Discovery from Law.com and found it very interesting. Among some of the more enlightening facts was this one:

“More than 40 sanctions cases — resulting in millions of dollars in fines — have been decided in one year since revisions to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure took effect. In contrast, only two have been recorded under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act since it was put into place in 2002.”

The article centers on the importance of having an e-discovery solution in place proactively. It even gives an example of how an e-Discovery solution actually helped exonerate Société GénéralIt with their recent scandal involving a rogue trader.

All this underscores the growing importance of a comprehensive e-Discovery solution to help companies control costs and lower risk.
