Event: E-Discovery: Manage the risk, avoid the crisis

21 May 2013, London

About the seminar

In today's data driven world, the ever-increasing types, locations and volumes of information make the challenge of responding to an e-Discovery request in a 'reasonable and proportionate manner' increasingly complex. When this complexity is coupled with a constantly-changing legislative environment and a ruthless focus on cost reduction, serious problems can occur.

Practical Law is working in association with Deloitte to deliver a two hour seminar to address the key issues associated with e-Discovery designed to enable you to make an informed choice when balancing risks, reward and investment in this area.

The event will focus on:

  • Managing, retrieving and reviewing your data when responding to e-Discovery and data requests
  • The critical need for integration between Records Management policies and procedures and the ability to effectively respond to e-Discovery and data requests
  • Increasing the effectiveness of document review by utilising new technologies.
  • The evolving challenges of Audio and Database discovery

CPD Points

This event will be CPD accredited. More details soon.
