When in Hong Kong recently, I had the opportunity to talk to Major Baisden, President of Iris Data Services, about Iris’s growing presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
Iris’s global clients are growing their businesses in AsiaPac, Major Baisden says, and the major cities of the region are not just financial centres but centres for global legal services. That makes AsiaPac a focus for future growth for Iris.
The Iris fixed price and managed services offerings enables lawyers to come across as technically aware and to decide for themselves how to add value for their clients.
A consistent theme across all regions is the need for proportionality – that the money spent on eDiscovery is reasonable relative to the volumes, the objective and the degree of risk involved. Managed services, Major Baisden says, enable lawyers to bring proportionality to their eDiscovery exercises.
