Attorney-client privilege is at the foundation of our legal system, and that right to privacy extends to legal records generated during the course of the attorney-client relationship. As with medical and financial records, legal records are also held to a very high standard of confidentiality, and must be stored, scanned and/or shredded securely to avoid any breach of client privilege.
Meeting notes, depositions, transcripts, documents from discovery, filings, motions and other evidentiary records must be stored properly and securely—failing to do so leaves any legal firm open to liability for breach of attorney-client privilege, which has serious professional and financial consequences. Why wouldn’t you choose a Records Management provider who understands exactly how important your records are, and has the experience, processes and personnel to truly protect it?
Gateway Records Management is well-versed in the security, storage and destruction requirements for legal records, and already has systems in place that guarantee privacy and security will be protected throughout the document life cycle. Whenever your records are destroyed, you’ll receive a Certificate of Destruction for your files that documents they were securely shredded.
