What do you like best?
LHP provides our company with one repository where all legal holds are stored (no more PDFs sent out across business unit's by one paralegal or attorney at a time). In addition, the automatic reminders are tantamount to meeting ongoing preservation obligations. Further, the ability to have legal hold templates makes issuing a legal hold straightforward and hassle-free. Finally, the reporting feature allows us to determine quickly any of a number of important data points, including whether a given employee is on a hold(s), and how many; number of holds by attorney/paralegal/business unit, etc.
What do you dislike?
Because there is no redlining capability in LHP, it is easier to start a draft in MS Word, forward to attorney for comments and edits, and then copy/paste into LHP. The problem is that LHP is not a MS Word product and when you copy/paste to it, indents, bullets, numbers and other formatting is a complete disaster and not easily fixed. I would love to see Word compatibility, some kind of redlining option for exchange of drafts among a legal team.
