As I have noted elsewhere, Navigant has grouped a comprehensive range of functions relating to information management into its Global Legal Technology Solutions practice to address the data management challenges of its worldwide clients. Increasingly (and rightly) large corporations are managing information both across disciplines and across jurisdictions, and Navigant’s Global Legal Technology Solutions team is a proper response to that.
There is a press release about this here.
Navigant’s Global Legal Technology Solutions offer eDiscovery and data analytics services, with specialist skills in forensic accounting and global investigations and compliance, addressing a wide range of legal technology issues including eDiscovery with a mixture of standard tools and custom solution development. The aim is to enable digital risk management, to increase efficiency, to reduce risk, and to control costs.
Having consolidated its services in the US and the UK, Navigant has now extended its reach to Asia, establishing a presence in Hong Kong with a full range of services such as data collection, processing, hosting, project management and eDiscovery consulting. This brings to the region Navigant’s well-established skills in managing structured and unstructured data, using existing applications where appropriate and their own applications when necessary. The facility includes a dedicated Relativity environment and the ability to deploy mobile discovery tools and services throughout Asia, dealing with the increasingly complex demands where cross-border discovery meets privacy and data protection restrictions.
Director Tanya Gross, whom I know from her time in Navigant’s London office, will lead the GLTS team in Asia.
