eDiscovery around the world in the Epiq Systems Summer Newsletter

The Epiq Systems Summer Newsletter includes links to various resources which are worth looking at.

One is a link to the video of Epiq’s recent panel called Changes to the Civil Procedure Rules on Costs which I wrote about here. Another is the article which I wrote in the recent Legal Efficiency supplement to The Times which included a quotation from Saida Joseph, International Director of Document Review Services at Epiq emphasising the fact-finding purpose of eDiscovery / eDisclosure.

There are references also to Epiq’s global development which includes the following:

  • New York: Two new document review centres providing expanded capacity
  • Washington, D.C.: Additional document review centre to meet record demand
  • Dallas: New document review centre
  • London: Comprehensive expansion for all services
  • Hong Kong: Expanded office and document review facilities; full suite of services
  • Tokyo: New office opened in February; full suite of services
  • Shanghai: New data centre
  • Canada: Coming soon

The most recent of these is the new office in Tokyo which offers the full range of eDisclosure / eDiscovery services including consulting, forensics, collections, processing and hosting, together with a new document review services facility with Japanese and other foreign language support. You can read more about Epiq’s Asian operations here.

I am just back from Hong Kong, where I took part in educational sessions alongside Laura Kibbe, Managing Director of Expert and Professional Services for Epiq Systems, and saw Epiq’s impressive new Hong Kong premises. I will be writing more about my visit in due course.

The US version of the newsletter includes a link to an article called Technology-Assisted Review 102: Beyond the Basics, written by Ignatius Grande of Hughes Hubbard and Andrew Paredes of Epiq. They discuss technology assisted review mechanisms, downfalls and applications, showing some best practices to help you get the best results for your client.
