My title is the name of a webinar which I am doing with Jason Robman of Recommind on 25 May. Its description reads as follows:
The enormous costs and time associated with the e-Disclosure process are staggering, with the document review phase alone frequently racking up fees that in some cases actually eclipse the amount at issue.
The reason for this is straightforward: the approach to identification, collection, processing, review and analysis of information – including technology, people and processes – haven’t kept up with the explosive growth of electronically stored information. Law firms and corporations that continue to use outdated approaches are simply too slow, inaccurate and inefficient to keep up with today’s digital information volumes and diversity and are finding themselves at a competitive disadvantage to their better-prepared peers.
In this webinar learn how law firms, corporations and the courts are embracing the use of new technology for more accurate investigations and to reduce e-Disclosure costs.
DATE: Wednesday, May 25, 2010
TIME: 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm BST

Those who visit this site regularly will know that this theme recurs here. The technology itself is gaining on the problem, but the approach which lawyers and courts adopt often amounts to using the methods of paper days. The handling of electronic documents is not just “like paper but different” but requires a completely different approach. The risks are apparent from several recent cases. The advantages for those prepared to recognise them, are considerable, not just in terms of terms of winning cases but for winning clients.
Do join us on 25 May at 4.00 pm.
