Information Governance for Law Firms - Why IG Compliance Isn’t Happening (Part 2)

Last week, we launched a 3-part article series about information governance (IG) for law firms. Every year, IG is getting more complex. As a result, even when law firms successfully launch IG programs they are often unable to follow through on implementation.

With all the risks associated with failing an audit, it doesn’t make sense that more firms aren’t compliant. In Part 2 of this series, we explore exactly why IG compliance is such a major challenge for modern law firms.
