In a recent court filing in the Mueller probe, Paul Manafort’s counsel failed to properly electronically redact some key sensitive information. That highly publicized redaction fail showed dramatically how a lawyer’s redaction mistake can harm his/her client.
Metadata, which exists in and around every electronic document, message, post and smartphone call, puts a law firm (or a legal department) and a client at risk. Privileged, confidential and/or highly sensitive, confidential information can be exposed. Metadata can reveal information such as a document’s author, original “Title”, creation and modification dates, embedded comments, and substantive changes made.
This webinar will be chock full of real-time demos from the presenter’s Desktop. You will learn how you can do your best to protect your clients and your law firm or law department by avoiding common mistakes related to various populated fields buried in an electronic document, “track changes”, PDF conversions, redactions and electronic discovery.
