An all-star panel from the e-discovery world gathered at the New York City Bar Association on May 17, 2012, to discuss the challenges faced in different roles when it comes to issuing legal holds and managing preservation.
The event, “Four Perspectives on Preservation and Proportionality,” was organized by Legal Hold Pro and featured U.S. Magistrate Judge James Francis, Lynn Dummett, Senior VP and Sr. Counsel at Allianz Global Investors, William Butterfield of Hausfeld, Robert Owen of Sutherland Asbill & Brennan, and Ronald Hedges, a former U.S. magistrate judge who served as moderator. The program’s theme was to compare and contrast the various perspectives of key stakeholders in the preservation process.
