Recommind is hosting a series of webinars on e-disclosure related topics over the next few months, here are the details…

Technology is Changing the Economics of e-Disclosure, Are You Prepared?
Wednesday, May 25, 2010 4:00 pm to
5:00 pm BST

The enormous costs and time associated with the e-Disclosure process are staggering, with the document review phase alone frequently racking up fees that in some cases actually eclipse the amount at issue. The reason for this is straightforward: the approach to identification, collection, processing, review and analysis of information – including technology, people and processes – haven’t kept up with the explosive growth of electronically stored information.  Law firms and corporations that continue to use outdated approaches are simply too slow, inaccurate and inefficient to keep up with today’s digital information volumes and diversity and are finding themselves at a competitive disadvantage to their better-prepared peers. In this webinar learn how law firms, corporations and the courts are embracing the use of new technology for more accurate investigations and to reduce e-Disclosure costs.
Speakers: Chris Dale, The e-Disclosure Information Project + Jason Robman, Assistant General Counsel, Recommind

The Impact of Earles v Barclays Bank on UK Corporations
Wednesday, June 16, 2010 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM BST
The judgment in Earles v Barclays has significant implications for UK corporations. The failure of the bank to have an efficient and effective information management system in place ultimately led to Barclays paying significant penalties for its disclosure failures. What are the future implications of this judgment? Lawyers must anticipate having to give disclosure of specifically relevant electronic documentation efficiently and effectively and must have the systems in place to do so. This webinar will discuss how corporations, as well as their lawyers, can avoid the reputational consequences, as well as the costs implications, of court decisions which comment adversely and publicly on their conduct of e-disclosure.

The UK e-Disclosure Questionnaire – Its Implications for Law Firms
Wednesday, July 21, 2010 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM BST
The UK Civil Procedure Rules already impose a duty on parties to discuss their electronic sources. The proposed ESI Questionnaire formalises that obligation and provides a checklist not just for parties to list their own sources but to set out what they expect from their opponents. Master Whitaker's judgment in Goodale v Ministry of Justice brings the questionnaire to public attention, and we can see expect to see it used ahead of its formal incorporation into the rules. Lawyers will be expected to understand much more about their clients’ electronic sources of disclosable material. This webinar focuses on the adverse consequences of failure to comply with the disclosure rules, but also shows how proper use of the ESI Questionnaire can be used as a positive tool for conducting the disclosure part of litigation in a timely and cost-effective way.
