ISBA's Practice Toolbox Series

Presented by the Illinois State Bar Association
 

It is not uncommon for firms to have hundreds … sometimes thousands of closed bankers boxes sitting around in warehouses, storage buildings, spare offices and, believe it or not, probably in partners’ garages and basements. Some firms spend thousands of dollars on closed file storage per month. Many firms are starting to move towards paperless office environments, which begs the question(s) “How long do I have to keep my closed files … paper and/or electronic?”… and “How can I convert that paper to digital so I can destroy the paper files?” Learn the essentials about document management & retention, and a common sense economical and ethical approach to a complex issue.
