I was away for part of July and missed an article by eDiscovery and forensics experts CYFOR about work they are doing to help clients involved in swap / interest rate hedging product disputes.
The article by eDisclosure consultant Lydia Hawthorn, is called CYFOR: Swap claim mania.
For many, the concept of “ Discovery” or “eDisclosure” relates to the formal compliance with Part 31 CPR and the process of review, something encouraged by the straightjacket of the costs budget rules. Lydia Hawthorn’s article rightly draws attention to the role of providers like CYFOR in helping with early assessment of a prospective case “to focus the search and provide a ‘flavour’ of electronic documents before launching a larger investigation”.
CYFOR amplifies its own expertise with the use of world-class software from Nuix, Relativity, Guidance Software and AccessData among others to achieve this objective, as valuable for investigations and compliance as they are for litigation.
