Important eDiscovery Considerations for Japanese Companies - Part 2
Organizations in Japan, and generally across Asia Pacific (APAC), have experienced a sharp increase in eDiscovery related work over the past several years due to a rise in cross-border litigations and investigations. It is more critical now than ever before to take stock of important considerations when evaluating and partnering with service providers that will guide and support your eDiscovery needs.
Previous blog indicated four critical factors that relate to cross-border matters that should always be considered when selecting a proficient eDiscovery service provider with the appropriate solutions and experience to provide the required guidance and assistance.
Local Skilled Resources
Awareness of Data Privacy Laws & Regulations
CJK Language Expertise
Analytics & Technology Assisted Solutions Built for CJK Language Nuances
Here is the comment from Edward, Rippey, Partner, Covington & Burling LLP.
We routinely handle cross-border litigations and investigations of all sizes -- small, medium, and large -- that are complex and involve tricky eDiscovery and CJK issues. The four considerations set forth in Part I capture the sorts of issues to which we pay extremely close attention. The technical analytics, the privacy laws, the language complexities, and the local considerations are tightly intertwined in most cross-border matters. We therefore prefer providers who deliver well on all these considerations because they then are able to promote an efficient partnership between and among the corporate end client, the law firm, and the provider.
We are going to hold a Covington/FRONTEO joint webinar with Ed Rippey, related to this topic: Important eDiscovery Considerations for Japanese Companies.
