Informa supporting eDiscovery Conference November 14th 2014 - Clontarf Castle, Dublin

A not to be missed, cutting edge conference covering what is coming down the track on discovery and disclosure. A must for all lawyers, data officers, technical support and e-discovery professionals

Recent developments in litigation indicate that the cost of an electronic discovery project can easily account for over 50% of an overall case. 

Done ineffectively, discovery costs can escalate to very serious levels for litigants. Clients look to their lawyers for guidance on eDiscovery. They need to be familiar with the Good Practice Guide to eDiscovery in Ireland released in April 2013 and its companion guide, the CLAI’s Good Practice Discovery Guide released in March 2014.

This 1- day conference brings together leading national & international leaders on the topic of electronic discovery. The panel of speakers includes Irish & US Judges, lawyers, legal cost accountants & eDiscovery specialists who have vast expertise of dealing with electronic discovery and disclosure including:
