Legal holds are an important part of the litigation process involving the preservation of forms and relevant information when litigation is reasonably anticipated. Companies must demonstrate that they have exercised the proper care to preserve and collect digital evidence to ensure that the entire organization is not at risk.

Onit’s Legal Hold solution helps corporate legal departments notify custodians of their duty to preserve information in a timely manner and guarantee compliance with this duty. With Onit’s Legal Hold tool, you can quickly issue legal hold notifications and manage custodian acknowledgments. Built on an innovative “process” platform, workflows can be easily configured and can automatically assign tasks to the appropriate in-house team member.

Additionally, in-house team members can gain real-time access to the status of collection requests, know when actions were issued, which tasks are in progress and which legal actions require immediate attention. The tool also creates comprehensive dashboard views so in-house teams can see when a custodian leaves an organization so they can enable email archiving or suspend the destruction of data.
