The eighth annual European Corporate Counsel Summit is a premium European forum bringing together leading in-house counsel with specialist international law firms and legal services providers. As an invitation-only event taking place behind closed doors, the summit offers a confidential environment for a focused discussion of key new drivers shaping the legal profession.

Drew Macaulay, Director at First Advantage Litigation Consulting will host the master class entitled, ‘Effectively Responding to Regulatory Investigation and Litigation while Keeping Costs Under Control’ which will take place on Sunday, 7th October 2012 at 5.00pm CET. 

During this presentation Macaulay will examine:

  • An overview of the process of responding to an information request or disclosure exercise

  • Getting started with project planning and situation analysis

  • Which company stakeholders need to be involved and to what extent

  • Identifying opportunities for cost control – using technology and legal process outsourcing while minimising risk

  • Complications relating to multi-jurisdictional matters – the impact of data privacy restrictions and multiple languages on the process

Macaulay comments, “There has been a dramatic increase in regulatory investigations and major litigation, covering a variety of sectors from financial services to extractive industries and the technology sector.  These matters frequently require corporations to collect, search and review large numbers of emails and other electronic documents, often from a number of countries and in a variety of different languages.  Without a clear strategic plan and effective use of appropriate human and technical resources the costs of responding to these regulatory information requests and disclosure exercises can significantly exceed budgets.”

First Advantage is also a headline sponsor of the event.  For further information about First Advantage Litigation Consulting visit
