I did a short post last night about a Women in eDiscovery London Group which I heard about in a pub (you would be surprised how much of what goes in my blog is picked up in pubs). My request for information has been speedily picked up by Laura Kelly of Trilantic, who wrote to me with information about the Group and about a forthcoming talk on 24 April by Vince Neicho of Allen & Overy.
Thank you for picking up about the Women in eDiscovery London Group. I am the Director of this Group and have been talking to the Women of the UK Litigation eDisclosure marketplace on this topic since February of this year.
A brief history:
In May 2007, a group, dedicated to women involved in eDisclosure, was established in the US. The Women in eDiscovery US group now has over 1200 active members. In February 2008, the London branch of this group was set up to provide a networking/information forum for Women in the UK, so that we too could provide help to each other and to our colleagues across in the US. We already have a membership list of 35 people.
We have now scheduled our first official meeting on the topic of “eDiscovery – Procedures and Pitfalls” on the 24th April. The speaker is Vince Neicho, Litigation Support Manager at Allen & Overy. Vince will give an overview of the eDisclosure marketplace and the procedures and protocols which will help you when presented with paper/electronic litigation. Vince is a regular speaker on eDiscovery both here and in the US.
Vince Neicho has been at the forefront of the litigation support industry for many years. He is a founding member of the LiST Group (Litigation Support Technology Group) whose aim is to encourage and develop uniformity of approach in the use of technology in litigation and alternative dispute resolution.
