ACEDS, the Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists, has organised some well-attended evening events since its launch in London last year.
The next one, on 7 February, may be the most interesting yet. It is about the proposed disclosure rule changes, and the panel includes Lady Justice Gloster who chaired the working group which drafted the proposed new rule.
The most straightforward and factual article about the proposals is on Simmons & Simmons’ Elexica site. It summarises the proposals and the main reasons for the changes, and has links to the draft rule.
Vince Neicho, now VP eDiscovery at Integreon, will be the moderator of the panel, drawing on his many years of responsibility for disclosure at Allen & Overy as well as his more recent involvement at Integreon. The other panel members are Ed Crosse, of Simmons & Simmons, Tim Brown of RPC and Caroline Field of Fox & Partners.
The event begins at 17:30 at the offices of Clyde and Co. Further details, including directions is to their offices can be found here.
The event has largely been organised by James MacGregor of Inventus. Inventus are sponsoring the Happy Hour after the event.
