Synopsis
International E-discovery offers a unique collection of world-wide analysis on the state of knowledge and practice in the use of digital evidence in legal and regulatory contexts. Written by hands-on technologists and legal practitioners this publication surveys the very latest developments that have been achieved in the principal legal centres of the commercial world in the use of leading-edge technology. The challenges experienced in the courts of different parts of the world are similar but there is no single solution that solves the problem created by the vast volumes of corporate data that form the basis of investigations, litigation and arbitration. Computer science with its statistical measurement, trial and error and numerical approach is converging with developed (and in some cases underdeveloped) legal knowledge, practice and procedure in different corners of the world. The task of bringing together the skills and approach of two very different disciplines is the key to successfully maintain a system of justice that works for business at a cost that is not overwhelmingly disproportionate. The authors (all leaders in their field) have addressed issues such as professional conduct, privacy laws, different levels of judicial awareness, the proper use of powerful search tools and techniques and the likely shape of the future. In one title for the first time the veil is lifted to provide you with deep insights into what works and what does not and where the money goes. There are professional tips on getting ahead with best practice on a country by country basis. A must-have addition to the seasoned practitioner's library, a vital read for students and practitioners of the future, and essential background reading for judges and arbitrators, this is both a thought leadership and accessible practical text that together multiple professional disciplines into a single volume.

AN IMPORTANT STATEMENT ON DATA PRIVACY & MANAGEMENT IN THE CONTEXT OF E-DISCOVERY

An appreciation by Elizabeth Robson Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers
and Reviews Editor, “The Barrister”

Globe Law and Business offer us, as practitioners, a well-researched publication which, as far as we know, is a unique collection covering “world-wide analysis on the state of knowledge and practice in the use of digital evidence in legal and regulatory contexts”. Do begin by reading Mark Surguy’s introduction which sets the scene nicely and opens the book well for those new to the subject-matter.

The word “discovery” has been the subject of renewed legal interest recently in view of failures to provide documentation relevant to litigation within the England and Wales jurisdiction. Therefore, this new handbook is both timely and relevant at national and international/global levels.

The handbook has been compiled for Globe by hands-on technologists and legal practitioners. It reviews the most recent developments “in the principal legal centres of the commercial world in the use of leading-edge technology” enhancing the global requirements we have in 2019. As legal professionals, we are aware of challenges we face in the courts across different parts of the world.

We also know that the issues are similar for all of us. However, as the contributors recognise, “there is no single solution that solves the problem created by the vast volumes of corporate data that form the basis of investigations, litigation and arbitration”. Of course, it makes all of us aware of the huge amount of information which is now out there – especially when we are older practitioners remembering the simplicity of the past!

Globe Law and Business remind us that “computer science with its statistical measurement, trial and error and numerical approach is converging with developed (and in some cases underdeveloped) legal knowledge, practice and procedure in different corners of the world”.

The task of bringing together the skills and approach of two very different disciplines is the key to successfully maintain a system of justice that works for business at a cost that is not overwhelmingly disproportionate.

Fortunately, all the writers are experts in their own fields and have reviewed issues including “professional conduct, privacy laws, different levels of judicial awareness, the proper use of powerful search tools and techniques and the likely shape of the future”.

In one title for the first time, this is a most informative handbook where, to use a legal expression, “the veil is lifted to provide you with deep insights into what works and what does not and where the money goes”. And there are professional observations and tips on moving forward with best practice, country by country which is most helpful for international lawyers.

This handbook has been rightly described as “a must-have addition to the seasoned practitioner’s library”. It’s a vital read for undergraduates and younger practitioners, giving the legal profession where it meets business with that essential background reading for both judges and arbitrators. We found the book to be a clear and accessible practical text which succeeds in bringing together multiple professional disciplines into a single volume at a time when data management and privacy are so needed.

The book was published on 15th August 2018.
