Independent eDiscovery and privacy consultant Nigel Murray has been organising a Commonwealth Brunch at LegalTech for 10 years now. This year’s takes place on Sunday 31 January at a very civilised 10:30am. It is hoped that the venue will be the Tavern on the Green – the picture below shows last year’s Brunch there.
The broad qualification for attending, I think, is that you originate from or largely work in a Commonwealth country. The real distinction, perhaps, is between Americans working in the US and the rest, including Americans who work outside the US. This is not an anti-American point – IDC predicts that by 2019, Europe will be almost 23 percent of the global eDiscovery market and Asia will be over 7 percent, so it is no bad thing for us to stand apart for one meal every year and see who we all are.
English, Canadian and Australian eDiscovery people form the largest groupings of those who attend. As US providers acquire more EU businesses, we might expect more Americans who work in the EU.
My pictures from last year are here.
