Washington, D.C., associates Yodi Hailemariam and Amy Ramsey Marcos co-authored an article for Corporate Counsel titled “Better Information Governance Means Better E-Discovery Outcomes—Part II: Components of Information Governance That Support Consistency in E-Discovery.” The article was the second in a three-part series.
Yodi and Amy examine how several core components of an information governance (IG) program can support consistent e-discovery practices, including policies and procedures, designated roles and responsibilities, data management, training and change management, and assessment and compliance. They also explain how the changes to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37(e) make sanctions less likely in the face of demonstrated IG efforts.
Part III of the series will walk through practical approaches to creating an IG framework within a company and include several initial IG-centered projects that benefit e-discovery and litigation as a whole.
