Defamation & Privacy

As the distribution of information grows, companies must be aware of the ever-changing laws, regulations, and rules on the use, collection, and disposal of sensitive personal information and require legal advice and representation to protect themselves, their employees, and their customers.  The attorneys at Lind, Jensen, Sullivan & Peterson, P.A. advise and represent their clients on a wide range of issues pertaining to the privacy and security of information.

Employment Context

Defamation and privacy/confidentiality issues are frequently raised in the employment context.  Our attorneys represent clients in state and federal courts, as well as before the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, and other state and local administrative agencies.  In addition, we routinely represent clients in various alternatives to litigation, including mediations, arbitrations and other alternative dispute resolution methods. Our strong litigation foundation also gives us a valuable perspective to work with managers and human resource professionals on prevention issues.

ESI Issues

Keeping up with the rapidly changing rules that pertain to the creation, retention, and production of electronically stored information (ESI) poses a challenge in companies today.  Our attorneys are familiar with the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure concerning electronic discovery, as well as development in state procedural rules in Minnesota and other states.  Our services related to e-discovery and record retention include:

– Drafting and implementing record production, retention, and destruction policies and procedures, as well as litigation response plans
– Managing e-discovery cases
– Preparing initial disclosures and responding to e-discovery interrogatories, requests for production,requests for admissions, or requests for inspections
– Drafting and arguing motions to compel or motions for protective orders
