The judiciary on both sides of the Atlantic is taking an increasing interest in the cost of litigation. What are the implications for law firms? Whenever there are amendments to the law, there are opportunities for law firms with vision; whilst firms who do not have a strategy are left behind. Technology assisted review (TAR) of documentary evidence has received judicial endorsement in recent cases both here in the UK and the US. The discussion, moderated by Laura Kibbe (Managing Director, Document Review & Expert Services) and featuring Senior Master Steven Whitaker of the Queen’s Bench Division and Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, will include debate upon the approach the courts are likely to take when considering arguments about the defensible use of TAR, the effect upon law firms’ fees when TAR is used and how law firms can expect to be penalised in costs if they fail to match up to the expectations of the court.

In this panel discussion held in June 2012, experts discuss these topics:

Senior Master Steven Whitaker of the Queen’s Bench Division
Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and author of the decision in Monique Da Silva Moore v Publicis Groupe and MSL Group [2012].
Bob Lewis MBE, Global Director, Cyber Forensics & Investigations (CFI)
