Aural Guidance on e-Disclosure

Something called the e-Disclosure Information Project is necessarily interested in exploring beyond the traditional speaking and writing ways of getting that information across, and this year has brought a number of recorded opportunities.

The Project is a loose confederation of a consultant, a judge and a litigation lawyer – me, HHJ Simon Brown QC and Mark Surguy of Pinsent Masons – plus those who sponsor my time (effectively all of my time now) in keeping the information flowing. One of the most active of the sponsors is Guidance Software, whose Patrick Burke was described to me last week (by someone who did not know I knew him) as being willing to go anywhere to find out about, and speak about, e-disclosure in any jurisdiction.

The common thread here is that each of Judge Brown, Mark Surguy and I have recently taken part in recorded sessions – podcasts and webinars – in company with Guidance Software. You may like to hear them.

Best Practices for eDisclosure webinar

The participants were Donald Little of Rolls-Royce, John Rosenthal, Partner and Co-Head of eDiscovery Group at Howrey LLP , Patrick Burke and me. We covered in 60 minutes a range of topics of interest primarily to in-house lawyers and their external advisers and ranged much more widely than Guidance’s own solution, EnCase. It is worth listening to primarily for the strongly expressed views of Donald Little, the client with the problem to solve as opposed to the professionals offering solutions.

Podcast with Judge Brown

As reported elsewhere (UK judge flies e-Disclosure flag in New York) Judge Brown spoke at a conference organised by IQPC in New York in February in a debate with two US judges moderated by Patrick Burke. The resulting debate on court rules and practices and on proportionality – a concept claimed by both sides and apparently proving George Bernard Shaw’s dictum about two countries divided by a common language – was a sparky one, and Patrick Burke invited Judge Brown to record the UK view.

The resulting recording is available as a podcast on the Guidance Software site

VNU webcast – do you know where your data is?

Mark Surguy of Pinsent Masons and Laurence Pender of Guidance Software were amongst the contributors to this webcast which was sub-titled How IT and legal teams can work together to address the implications of data protection and disclosure. The other speakers were Alessandro Moretti, Executive Director IT Security Risk Management at UBS, Paul Gilbert of LBC Wise Counsel, Computing Editor Bryan Glick, and Legal Week Editor John Malpas.

More than 600 attendances were registered for the original webcast, nearly all from corporates as opposed to external law firms. If you want to find out what your corporate clients are hearing, listen to the webcast.

In addition to these recordings, I did a live video webinar for LexisNexis in March which I mentioned as part of a summary of a busy week (Discovering what to do about e-disclosure). I will do a separate post on that.
