The report highlights the recent and rapid international expansion of the use of ediscovery techniques and technologies by law firms and their clients as well as the huge progress made in the capabilities of ediscovery itself.
Tim Phillips, Managing Director of Kroll Ontrack International Legal Technologies, said: “We’ve witnessed an exponential rise in the use of ediscovery services in countries beyond the traditional homeland markets of the U.S. and U.K., where take-up of ediscovery was initially driven by changes to the legal system governing disclosure and discovery in legal proceedings. Today, ediscovery is becoming an important element of the business and corporate governance landscape, even for countries like Germany and Hong Kong that do not have an obligation to provide ediscovery under their legal framework.
“As a leader in the global industry, we believe it is important to document these changes and to highlight ediscovery’s rapid growth as a problem-solver for everything from regulatory compliance to dealing with dawn raids, and from unbundling legal services to forensic investigations.”
The new report outlines what’s happening with ediscovery in different regions around the world, including Europe, the U.S., and the Far East; why the global financial services sector in particular is applying ediscovery to its own unique market challenges; how organisations are using ediscovery to break up cartels; and where technologies such as predictive coding are heading to next.
Tim Phillips continues: “As well as crossing additional geographical frontiers, ediscovery technology is also hitting new technology milestones. Predictive coding is now used in almost every new matter we are instructed on in the U.K., for example. Acceptance is growing in the Courts of Law in the US and Europe and will mean even more demand for clever ediscovery technology in the future.”
