…Making sense of cross border e-discovery issues…
LONDON – Monday 31st October 2011 – First Advantage Litigation Consulting, the global expert in computer forensics and e-discovery for corporations and the legal profession, has announced that Michael Becker, Regional Director of Litigation at First Advantage will be presenting at the forthcoming Litigation Summit in Frankfurt, Germany. The two-day event is scheduled to take place during 23rd – 24th November 2011, at the Jumeirah hotel and will bring an impressive range of Litigation experts and in-house counsel to share best practices.
The summit will look at a range of critical issues such as Cross-Border Litigation; Asset Tracing in International Claims; managing U.S. Litigation procedures and E-Discovery processes; Arbitration & Alternative Dispute and Resolution; and Class Action Litigation. The content is ideally suited for individuals in job functions such as Chief Litigation Officer, Litigation Partners, Head of Dispute Resolution, Head of Corporate & Commercial Litigation, General and Corporate Counsel, and In-house Commercial Litigation professionals.
Michael Becker, Regional Director of Litigation at First Advantage Consulting comments, “The rise in cross-border trade has been accompanied by an increase in cross-border litigation, arbitration and regulatory investigations. The underlying causes of these disputes are, broadly speaking, the same as they have always been, but with an added layer of complexity as companies now litigate and respond to regulatory matters in a variety of jurisdictions, with varying legal frameworks and cultural nuances. Understanding your exposure can help minimise risks and there are a lot of proactive measures that legal professionals can take to ensure that they are better prepared to deal with such matters.”
