OpenText Legal Hold overview

See how OpenText™ Legal Hold enables effective legal hold issuance and tracking.

OpenText™ Legal Hold is a simple, powerful cloud-based litigation hold notification software that helps law departments comply with legal hold obligations, be more efficient, and automate time-consuming and risky manual processes.

Legal Hold automates interrelated litigation hold activities to drive greater efficiency among legal, HR, compliance and IT teams.


What is Legal Hold software?

Legal holds arise from the duty to preserve information for pending or reasonably anticipated litigation. Once litigation is contemplated, individuals and organizations have a legal obligation to prevent deletion and preserve potentially relevant data while the litigation hold is in place.

Modern litigation hold software automates the interrelated legal hold, data preservation and collection activities. These solutions automate processes, speed access to relevant information and reduce reliance on IT teams.
