One of the more interesting trends in the last couple of years has been the realisation that eDiscovery tools and skills have application beyond the obligations to disclose documents in disputes. The analysis of the Panama Papers and Paradise Papers provides one such example; another comes from the increasing use of eDiscovery tools in document-heavy legal work beyond disputes, such as M&A and other areas where substantial due diligence is required.
iCONECT gave us a very good example of this recently when they put the newly released Kennedy assassination documents into its XERA discovery platform and made them available to anyone who cared to login. I wrote about that here.
On eDiscovery Day, 1 December, iCONECT did a joint webinar with ACEDS called Five things we learned by hosting the JFK documents. The webinar went down very well and is to be redelivered tomorrow, 15 December at 1:00pm ET by iCONECT CEO Ian Campbell.
