Litigation preparedness starts long before a lawsuit crosses the threshold. A key aspect of litigation preparedness is a defensible destruction program, which consists of a triad of information governance components—knowing what information exists, being able to find what’s there, and being able to defend why some information is not there.  Having these components in place as well as creating a robust process for establishing and maintaining a significant legal hold process are essential for navigating the rough waters of litigation. Montaña & Associates have long experience in all phases of this process and offer expert guidance where it is needed.
