Helping legal professionals to reduce risk, control costs and gain greater control of the eDisclosure process
London – May 10, 2013 – Consilio, a Symphony Technology Group (STG) company and global leader in eDisclosure software and services, has announced it will host a workshop, and give a formal presentation at the IQPC 8th Annual Information Governance and eDisclosure Summit in London.
The three day event is scheduled to take place during 14th – 16th May, 2013 at the Lancaster London Hotel, UK. This year’s forum will explore what leading corporations are doing today to control the risks and costs inherent in the eDisclosure process. High level experts, including international speakers, judges, and representatives from leading regulators will delve into the complexities of global data protection and compliance, litigation costs budgeting, and technologies such as predictive coding.
The Consilio hosted events will include:
- Tuesday, May 14th, 2013, 1.30pm – 3.30pm: Pre-conference workshopentitled, “Effective Cost Control in Litigation and Regulatory Investigations” will be hosted by Drew Macaulay, Managing Director at Consilio and Mark Surguy, Partner, Commercial Dispute Resolution Group at Eversheds LLP. The session will provide an overview of the process of responding to an information request or disclosure exercise, and practical insights into the use of new technology and outsourcing options to reduce costs and accelerate the disclosure or investigation process.
- Thursday, May 16th, 2013, 2.00pm – 2.45pm: Conference day two workshop entitled, “Budgeting for eDisclosure - Predicting costs” will be hosted by Drew Macaulay, Managing Director at Consilio and Matthew Davis, Litigation Support Lawyer at Hogan Lovells International LLP. The session will look at the impact of the April 2013 changes to the Civil Procedure Rules in practical terms, including step by step advice on gathering metrics, conducting sampling and predicting the cost of an eDisclosure exercise.
Drew Macaulay, Managing Director at Consilio, explains, “The Jackson Reforms and April 2013 changes to the Civil Procedure Rules in the UK have increased the need for companies and their law firms to gain a better understanding of the eDisclosure process. Litigants will need to present their proposed eDisclosure strategy and budget to the Court, and be prepared to defend their decisions if necessary. In addition to this, the incidence of regulatory information requests across a variety of sectors is rising, and eDisclosure processes and technology are a critical part of the response. Our workshop will provide practical guidance to help participants gain greater control of the costs involved in large scale and multi-jurisdictional eDisclosure processes.”
