3 Discovery of documents and electronic information abroad is an increasingly important part of litigation Growing awareness of e-discovery issues in Europe and Asia will drive growth in these regions the U.S. s share of total [ediscovery] revenue will decline from 81% in 2012 to less than 70% in Gartner, Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery Software June 10, 2013 Problems with foreign discovery are driven by fundamental differences in legal systems and privacy/data protection laws U.S. courts may be unfamiliar with, and take a dim view of, foreign law Laws and practices are quickly evolving across the world 3

9 Multiple jurisdictions now encourage or require parties to discuss proportionality, use technology and cooperate with opposing parties to Ensure that only data strictly necessary for legal proceedings is transferred out Locate, reduce and review relevant evidence defensibly and efficiently Reduce cost and justify efforts Ensure the scope of the search is proportionate to the case at hand using technology 9
10 Meet and confer or take early 30(b)(6) depositions to find location of data Ensure consistency and multilingual compatibility among technologies Complement technology capabilities with personnel where applicable (consider hiring foreign counsel and translators) International Document Review through SaaS platform: questionable if this qualifies as a transfer 2013 edj Group Asian ediscovery Survey; n=66 10

12 2. Be cautious of nationalist challenges. Strong nationalism may thwart collection efforts, as parties question why APAC privacy considerations do not trump US discovery laws. 3. Capture full forensic images and conduct client interviews. Unlike in the US where active data capture is permissible, do not risk an insufficient collection in the APAC region. 12
13 4. Watch for international data nuances. Multilingual software platforms generate different metadata fields than US software platforms. Also, APAC companies tend to encrypt more than in the US. 5. Don t overlook paper documents. Unlike in the US, paper documents are still heavily used in APAC businesses. 13
14 Despite the differences, some things are the same in APAC ediscovery matters: 1. Legal and IT need to be on the same page. In APAC collections, make sure the legal team has full access to the corporation s IT team. 2. Validate technology capabilities. Despite what the service provider claims, ensure for yourself that the technology can handle multilingual data. 3. Thoroughly vet any service provider in the APAC region. Ensure they will use best practices. Ask if they capture a chain-of-custody. Inquire if they use subcontractors 14
