Menachem Hasofer, a partner in the disputes team at Mayer Brown JSM in Hong Kong

Menachem Hasofer, a partner in the disputes team at Mayer Brown JSM in Hong Kong, was a speaker at the ALM – ILTA  Asia Technology Summit in Hong Kong in March 2014. He took part in a panel discussion about the proposed eDiscovery Practice Direction along with Chris Dale. Here he talks about the proposals, emphasising that what is envisaged is a pilot scheme.

The court, he says, is very keen to tailor an eDiscovery regime to each case and efficiency and proportionality are seen as critical to cases. Cooperation will be expected, and this will involve a significant cultural shift. A simplified version of the UK Electronic Documents Questionnaire will be incorporated into the Practice Direction for use where relevant.
