UBIC is presenting a seminar on 25th of April from 11:30am to 3:00pm in New York with the title Crossing the Pacific: conducting legal business in Japan and the rest of Asia. This is part of UBIC’s Signature series of seminars – I had the pleasure of taking part in one in Washington at the end of last year.
The lead moderator is Ari Kaplan. Speakers include Masahiro Morimoto, the CEO and founder of UBIC, Jason Baron of Drinker Biddle & Reath and panellists including Denise Backhouse of Littler, John Kapp of Shearman & Sterling, David Horrigan of 451 Research, Patrick Burke of Reed Smith, and Paul Starrett of UBIC (to name only those whom I know).
As I mentioned in a recent post, Masahiro Morimoto has written a book on eDiscovery in Japan to help Japanese clients dealing with US discovery and US companies to understand the challenges and opportunities in Asian language eDiscovery. Signed copies of the book will be given to those who attend the seminar.
