Established in 2006, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) requires any company involved in a lawsuit or federal litigation to preserve and recover electronic documents and emails as part of the discovery process. The penalties for non-compliance with FRCP include fines, criminal penalties, and obstruction of justice charges.
“U.S. companies face an average of 350 pending lawsuits internationally,” according to the Third Annual Litigation Trends Survey by Fullbright & Jaworski. “The average litigation expenditure for U.S. companies surveyed has increased by 50% from 2005 to $12 million – a figure that does not include ultimate case settlement or judgment payments. Litigation costs loom even larger considering that they represent 70% of overall legal spending.
