Course Description
No matter how compliant, responsible or ethical a company may actually be, the existence of a “smoking gun” email or memo can be devastating, and can often greatly undercut a company’s ability to defend itself. Sometimes these “hot docs” accurately reflect a widespread rotten corporate culture. But often they arise from inadvertence, sloppiness, poor judgment or an attempt at humor.

This webinar will present an overview of the dangers that often arise from these smoking guns, as well as how companies can reduce the likelihood of their creation.

Among other things, you’ll learn the answers to the following questions:
  • What makes a document a “smoking gun?”
  • Why are these documents so critical in litigation?
  • What are some examples of smoking guns in recent litigation, and how did the affect their cases?
  • How might smoking guns be discovered?
  • What can companies do to reduce the likelihood of future “hot docs?”
