Two press releases from UBIC emphasise its commitment to easing the path of those engaged in US eDiscovery and investigations.
The first is aimed at law enforcement investigators in Japan and involves training in the use of UBIC’s Lit i View Xaminer software, a digital forensics tool used by law enforcement to identify and investigate cases of corporate fraud and other illegal activities. The press release about that is here.
The other is a broader training aimed at educating Japanese corporate officers in the practical aspects of dealing with US-style eDiscovery. Discovery is, of course, not exclusively US concept, and Japanese corporations are increasingly faced with it in other jurisdictions as well. Many of the concepts are similar across all common law countries, and Japanese corporations can be at a disadvantage if they do not understand it. That is described in a press release here.
