Ofsted has shown us WHY we should collect data properly and now lawyers must find out HOW

We do not yet know if Ofsted’s failure to give proper disclosure in the Shoesmith litigation was the result of cock-up or conspiracy – I am hedging my bets and assuming both that Ofsted fouled it up and that the … Continue reading

EnCase Portable brings data collection to your desktop

The idea that a law firm might keep a copy of Guidance Software’s EnCase Portable in a drawer for on-the-spot collections leads into a discussion about how much a firm needs to know. I will let Guidance Software speak for … Continue reading

A short video could win you free tickets and accommodation at CEIC

The use of video turns up in these pages either where a supplier has used the medium to educate or to promote a product, or in a slightly embarrassed reference to my own reluctant appearances in front of the camera. … Continue reading

Mixing eDiscovery business with pleasure at LegalTech 2010

I write each February after LegalTech in New York to try and convey how this event is simultaneously hard work and good fun. Certain times and cultures are inherently suspicious of the idea that you can enjoy yourself whilst working, … Continue reading

LexisNexis eDiscovery conference in Singapore

The British invade Washington again, this time to talk and learn, not burn

Learning in good company at IQPC e-Disclosure Conference in Brussels

Guidance Software launches EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner Program

As you will have gathered from recent posts I am not a supporter of the idea that anyone working in the ediscovery / e-disclosure field must have a certificate to prove their competence. My opposition is based largely on the … Continue reading
