Legal Document Shredding: Protect Your Firm and Your Clients’ Rights
Legal 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 office to stiff fines and other penalties as well as the risks of losing public trust. Rather than wondering whether your document shredding and disposal practices are in full compliance with the law, know for sure by using Shred With Us.
Shred With Us is dedicated to helping law firms and attorneys dispose of and shred legal documents properly. Because we know the letter of the law, we make certain your law office stays in compliance throughout the entire process.
Regulations to Follow
Depending on what type of law your law office practices, there are certain laws that need to be followed when shredding documents. The two most common are:
- Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act: Also known as GLB, those who practice law concerning real estate closings, financial planning, or estate planning are bound by the law to dispose of documents properly. This includes two issues when having another party do the work for you. The first issue is conducting due diligence when looking for a company to shred your legal documents for you and the other is giving written permission to that company for destruction of the documents.
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act: Also known as HIPAA, those who practice law involving personal injury, workers’ compensation, social security disability, or medical malpractice are bound by the law regarding disposal as well. The same issues apply as far as finding a reputable company to shred your legal documents and providing them with a written permission in order to do so.
While both laws must be carefully followed, you don’t have to worry when you use Shred With Us. Our standards and practices go well beyond what is deemed mandatory by both laws.
