Legal Industry

The legal industry is placed in an interesting position with regard to data archiving and records retention. While there are no specific regulations that determine how legal firms or individual law offices must retain data (as in the healthcare industry), entities in the legal industry must be prepared to encounter, and be subject to, any number of existing regulations. Attorneys working with the U.S. federal courts must comply with Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) for eDiscovery as well as any equivalent versions implemented at state levels, or if in the UK, Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) applies.

The American Bar Association (ABA) and ARMA International offer best practices for records management (RM) in the legal industry that counsel the benefits of establishing retention policies. Law offices and/or corporations face many considerations when setting appropriate legal data retention periods including: federal and state regulations, intellectual property requirements, statutes of limitations and general business and contractual requirements that could extend data retention periods. Additionally, client and corporate privacy is of utmost concern.

Recovery and compliance solutions must be capable of archiving electronically stored information (ESI) such as text, email, images and telephony [in their native formats]. All archived information including digital content and image and email archives, must be easily accessible and rapidly retrievable.
