Legal Document Shredding: Protect Your Firm and Your Clients’ Rights
Law offices are filled with highly sensitive documents and files. These documents must be safeguarded at every stage of client work – even at the point of disposal. Improper disposal exposes the law firm to stiff fines and other penalties as well as the risks of losing public trust.
TITAN Shredding is dedicated to helping law firms and attorneys dispose of and shred legal documents, media and hard drives properly. We make certain your law office stays in compliance throughout the entire process.
Regulations to Follow
Depending on what type of law your firm practices, there are certain laws that need to be followed when shredding documents. The most common are:
Fair & Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA): As many lawyers and legal professionals know, it is important to adhere to current federal privacy law, such as FACTA. Destruction and shredding of legal documents is essential in order to meet the requirements of FACTA and the FTC Disposal Rule. Proper legal record purging should take place whenever your client’s information needs to be disposed of.
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB): Legal practices engaged in real estate closings, financial planning, or estate planning are bound by GLB to dispose of documents properly. This includes two requirements when having a third party do the shredding for you: 1) conducting due diligence when selecting a document destruction company to shred your legal documents and 2) giving written permission to that company for destruction of the documents.
Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA): Firms that practice law involving personal injury, workers’ compensation, social security disability, or medical malpractice are bound by the law regarding disposal as well. The same requirements apply – selecting a reputable company to shred your legal documents and providing them with written permission in order to do so.
