First Advantage to host cross-border regulatory conference in Brussels

Updated on 19 April to include a link to the press release about this event including the timetable.

I wrote recently about the acquisition of DLR Legal by First Advantage Litigation Consulting, which brings together FADV’s technology and consulting skills and DLR Legal’s multilingual review expertise.

I have also written and spoken a lot recently about litigation and regulatory investigations which raise legal, practical, technical and language issues, often simultaneously and often at very short notice. Regulatory investigation raise implications, and have timescales, which are particularly challenging.

The first fruits of FADV’s acquisition comes on 24 April when they host a conference on The Hidden Risks of Cross-Border Regulatory Investigations at the Cercle de Lorraine, Brussels. The event is introduced by DLR Legal’s co-founder Mathieu van Ravenstein.

The legal context is provided by Andrew Hockley, a partner at Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP, whose subject is Cartels and Leniency. Drew Macaulay of First Advantage is speaking on Challenges in gathering and reviewing evidence in regulatory investigationsMichele Tagliaferri, an Associate at Sidley Austin LLP brings together the legal and practical implications with a talk called Data collection, review and transfer issues.

All this is conveniently gathered together in an event which starts at 11:30am  CET and finishes in time for lunch at 13.15pm. For further information about the event, or to register, send an e-mail to
