On 25 November, I am one of the speakers at a round table organised by Equinix with the title Improving regulatory and litigation response. The other speakers are Jeremy Hopkins of Clerkingwell Consulting and Ollie Imoru of Equinix UK.
The broad subject of the event is how businesses and law firms manage growing volumes of digital information when courts and regulators require it quickly, and where courts, at least, also expect it to be delivered cost effectively. We aim to address how eDiscovery and information governance technologies can play their part in removing bottlenecks and increasing the efficient flow of information, and the right information, from client to lawyer to court or regulator.
I will focus on the process and formal procedural aspects of this while Jeremy Hopkins, well-known for his views on how lawyers should structure their businesses to give the best service to clients, will talk about that aspect.
Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) facilities house data centres for more than 6,250 companies worldwide. The IBX facilities offer wide geographical reach, and a large choice in networks and efficient connectivity options for companies looking to lease data centre space. Ollie Imoru will cover how this technical efficiency supports the business and procedural suggestions which Jeremy Hopkins and I will make.
The event will be of interest and importance to anyone within corporations or law firms with responsibility for managing the eDiscovery and information governance process, and for those who advise them.
