Mitratech Kicks Off 2019 with the Launch of New SaaS Legal Hold Solution and Series of Legal Ops Panels at LegalTech

Austin, Texas (Jan. 28, 2019) — Mitratech today announced the launch of LegalHold, a new, modern, mobile-friendly SaaS solution for end-to-end management of the legal hold process, enabling both defensible mitigation of litigation risk and improved outcomes. LegalHold was built in partnership with over 40 corporate legal department clients, who’s co-innovation over the past year helped create a validated, best-practice-based solution.

LegalHold’s intuitive design simplifies the entire process, maximizing efficiency for both the legal department and custodians who must attest to their obligations. In just four easy steps, a legal team can create and manage a hold. This standardized, repeatable process reduces the risk that potential evidence is deleted, and can stand up to judicial scrutiny.

LegalHold features include:

  • Mobile-optimized user experience for administrators and custodians
  • Personalized custodian portal
  • Intuitive legal hold wizard with email template library
  • One-click integration with TeamConnect and eCounsel ELM platforms
  • Seamless integration with HRIS and Active Directory
  • Configurable custodian questionnaires with templates
  • Automatic email reminders and manager escalations
  • Comprehensive audit trail for all hold related actions
  • Embedded dashboards and reports for administrators

“Legal departments don’t have time to spend fumbling with complex and cumbersome software, or highly manual and error-prone spreadsheets to manage the legal hold process,” said Chris Kraft, Senior Vice President, Product Management, Mitratech. “They need software that is quick and easy to use for both administrators and custodians while ensuring data integrity to protect the company. Our unique, mobile-optimized design and seamless integration with matter management systems help improve response rates, reduce risk and save staff time by as much as 75 percent.”

Mitratech is excited to kick off 2019 with four distinguished panels at Legalweek scheduled on Jan. 29. Moderated by Mitratech’s Chris Kraft, Brian McGovern, and Steven O’Donnell, the panels include some of the industry’s most innovative and forward-thinking legal operations professionals.
