The issues raised by cross-border discovery remain a source of pain and expense to both to those who need to conduct such exercises and to those who face them. They bring all the complexity of any large discovery exercise, with an overlay of legal, practical and technology complexities which can add considerably to the time and expense of the discovery exercise.
I am taking part in a webcast today with Craig Earnshaw from FTI Consulting and Denise Backhouse of Littler. We will describe the problems associated with cross-border discovery and suggest some practical ways of addressing them. The webcast, one on a series being run by FTI on different regions, broadcasts at 2pm EDT / 7.00pm BST today. Registration is here.
