Shredding Solutions for the Legal Profession
Document destruction that follows the letter of the law
Eventually, even legal documents lose their value and become obsolete. Keeping them indefinitely can expose your clients to unnecessary risks that can be avoided with a document destruction strategy.
Regulatory compliance and increased emphasis on ethical conduct and accountability demand that you safeguard your clients’ privacy and administrative records.
At least 77 in-house lawyers were the subject of government probes or were forced out of their offices as a result of corporate investigations. Among those, at least 25 faced criminal prosecutions. (Corporate Counsel, March 2008).
