The UK chapter of ACEDS (Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists) has organised some of the best eDiscovery-related events in London in the last couple of years. I moderated early ones on technology-assisted review and on the GDPR; the last one I attended was an extremely good discussion about the pending new eDisclosure rule which I wrote about here.
The next one is on 20 September and is called Bringing eDiscovery in-house. The moderator is Vince Neicho of Integreon and the panel members are:
Gearoid O’Laoithe – eDiscovery Case Manager – Royal Bank of Scotland
Richard Day – Lawyer – Serious Fraud Office
Emily Wyllie-Ballard – eDiscovery Manager – Reynolds Porter Chamberlain
The information page about this session includes a helpful synopsis of the factors weighed up by the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Serious Fraud Office and Reynolds Porter Chamberlain as they made the decision to bring part of the discovery process in-house. These are three very different organisations and it will be interesting to see what commonality, and what differences, arose from their decision-making and subsequent implementations.
The event takes place at the Royal Bank of Scotland between 17:30 and 21:00 on Thursday 20 September. The information page includes a link for free registration.
I probably won’t be there, alas – I am flying back the previous night from the Nuix User Exchange in California. I will be sorry to miss the ACEDS discussion.
