If e-discovery is complex when you're a U.S.-based company in litigation with another U.S.-based company, the complexity is multiplied when you're a U.S.-based company in litigation with a foreign company, or vice versa. And in an age when globalization is the predominant corporate trend, it will happen more often.
Those at Mitratech who are putting together Interact 2008: The Legal & Compliance Technology Forum are keenly aware of that fact. As such, they are including a panel discussion, "Crossing Borders: Global eDiscovery Challenges," as part of the conference, which is to be held at the Marina Del Ray Marriott in California on Sept. 21-24, 2008.
According to a Market Wire release at CNNMoney.com, Huron Consulting is sponsoring the panel, which will be led by e-discovery experts in various roles -- from corpoprate legal counsel, to risk managers, to legal IT experts, to consultants. They will discuss what they have learned and the practices they have used to meet the challenges of global e-discovery head on.
Huron Consulting Group's Rob Hichens says, "Developing best practices is the key to navigating the complexities of global e-discovery matters."
