LAW FIRM INFORMATION GOVERNANCE SYMPOSIUM

Introduction

Iron Mountain established the Law Firm Information Governance Symposium (Symposium) in 2012, as a platform for the legal industry to create an information governance (IG) roadmap unique to law firms. A Steering Committee of five law firms guides the mission and direction of the Symposium. The Symposium offers definitions, processes and best practices for building law firm IG. The reports are authored by law firm leaders and subject matter experts from the service provider community.
