Slack: Understanding and Addressing Discovery Challenges

Slack is a popular cloud-based team collaboration and messaging platform used by a wide variety of organizations. Similar to other workplace messaging platforms that have grown in popularity, Slack remains largely unknown to many counsel and the courts. Nevertheless, content from Slack—including business communications, records, graphics, and other information—is increasingly subject to discovery. A lack of knowledge about Slack can lead to complications with satisfying preservation, collection, and production obligations for relevant Slack content in discovery.
This paper provides information regarding the nature and features of Slack. It delineates challenges that may arise when dealing with Slack in discovery and identifies practical steps that counsel for both requesting parties and responding parties can take to address this source of discoverable information.
