Word to the Wise: Know Your Leadership Style

3/23/2017

Suppose a client follows standard document retention procedures and disposes of a set of documents. If the law firm retains related documents beyond that retention schedule, those documents then become discoverable in a legal matter. 

The key is to develop document retention and destruction procedures that protect your interests as well as those of your clients.
