Many recent high profile cases have made it abundantly clear that the millions of e-mail messages and other corporate communications and records which flow through today's organizations are ticking time-bombs.

Reducing the chances that those bombs will explode and ensuring that documents are appropriately handled has become a critical — and complex — challenge of today's corporate counsel. Whether the blow up comes from discovery, inappropriate destruction or otherwise, in-house counsel and their advisors need to know how to go on the offensive to prevent the criminal and civil penalties and negative publicity that can result. They also need to need know how to appropriately protect the organization once it is at risk of an e-discovery fishing expedition.
