Are you aware of the dangers lurking in your documents? A missed privileged document could spell the end of your chances at trial, and failing to redact all the necessary personal information in your files could lead to heavy fines or a lawsuit. Hidden deep in your documents could be evidence that your colleagues are committing fraud!
With Halloween right around the corner, we’ve prepared a list covering the terrifying items that could be lurking in your documents.
The 7 Terrifying Items Lurking in Your Documents
- Unknown Attorneys
The attorney list you get at the start of a document review is never complete. Missing an attorney may mean missing hundreds of privileged documents!
- The Same Person Appearing under Different Names
Often, attorneys are referred to only by their first name, by their initials, by a misspelled version of their name, or a different name entirely!
- The Dual Role Problem
The in-house counsel is offering business advice in one email and legal advice in another. How do you tell the difference?
- Non-Attorneys Discussing Advice Received From An Attorney
Legal advice is privileged even when its being repeated.
- Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information
Failing to redact all the PII and PHI in your files might leave you in grave danger!
- Special Category Information
Sometimes PII isn’t as obvious as a name or address. Special category information like political alignment, religious belief, or sexual orientation might need to be redacted as well.
- Code Words
When committing fraud, a person is likely to disguise their activity behind code words. Do you know what your colleagues really mean when they say “reuben sandwich?"
