NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Business Intelligence Associates, Inc. ( BIA), an eDiscovery software and services leader and sponsor of the upcoming LegalTech tradeshow ( January 29-31 at the Hilton New York in New York City) announced today that visitors to their exhibitor booth #1301 will receive a free license to use BIA's TotalDiscovery software to issue legal hold notices. BIA has championed the importance of legal hold notices in the eDiscovery process after recognizing the exposure to potential sanctions faced by firms who fail to take such a simple action as issuing a legal hold notice. In addition to legal hold notices, BIA is also bringing attention to the significant problem of over-collecting data and thus wasting resources and money. BIA's TotalDiscovery software solves both problems by automating the legal hold management process, as well as offering workflows and functions to perform surgical data collections and cull and filter that collected data to minimize exposure. "Issuing a legal hold notice is the first step that an organization should take in maintaining legal compliance, which is why we're offering LegalTech attendees licenses of the legal hold functions in TotalDiscovery at no charge," said BIA V.P. of Advisory Services, Barry Schwartz, CEDS. "Using TotalDiscovery for the subsequent phases of the eDiscovery process will also protect the organization from additional preservation related problems, such as spoliation." BIA experts will be on staff at booth 1301 to explain how TotalDiscovery and the legal hold features work, as well as sign-up visitors to the application in person.
