Develop Rules for Quick Litigation Response
If you don’t have enough to do in your RIM activities, have I got a job for you. Responding to litigation is an exercise in futility. You have to produce anything and everything relevant to the case. But for most bigger institutions there is no way to even know if you have most of the relevant stuff let alone all of it. If you're in RIM, your job is likely limited to making retention rules and making sure they are followed. What about adding to your full plate by developing rules about where things need to be put? One of our clients took on the responsibility of developing the Office of Contract management. All final contracts will be stored there making finding them for business reasons of producing them for litigation that much easier. So start developing rules about where to content and RIM life and litigation response will be faster, better and cheaper.
