Consilio is a provider of eDiscovery software and services, with feet across the eDiscovery globe. Its locations across the US, Europe and Asia inevitably involve it in the complexity of cross-border litigation, where multiple languages, disparate data types and varying and ever-stricter data protection requirements can add significantly to the costs of collection and the subsequent stages of discovery.
The right technology is essential, but so too is the skill and experience which goes into the development of appropriate processes, repeatable workflows and reports which keep lawyers and clients abreast of timescales and costs.
It is the latter points which are the main subject of a webinar called Saving Dollars, Euros and Yen: understand and control discovery costs in cross-border litigation, which takes place on 24 January at 1.00pm EST.
The participants are:
Rachel Rubenson, Associate Vice President for Litigation at Barclays
Scott Reents, eDiscovery Attorney for Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton
Mike Flanagan, General Counsel at Consilio, former litigation partner at Gibson Dunn
Robert Wickstrom, Vice President for Consilio
The subjects to be covered include:
- Creating effective cross-cultural project teams with internal and external resources
- Designing efficient workflows to accommodate varying requests in multiple jurisdictions
- Architecting data hosting in light of data protection requirements
- Assessing potential costs and monitoring project spend.
