Due to the recent sharp increase in cross-border litigations and investigations within the APAC region,
it is critical now more than ever before to take stock of important considerations when evaluating and partnering with service providers.
During this webinar we will discuss critical factors that relate to cross-border matters involving organizations in Japan, and generally across Asia Pacific (APAC), that should always be considered when selecting a proficient eDiscovery service provider.
Some of these factors include retaining the services of local discovery specialists, maintaining compliance with data privacy laws & regulations, ensuring your selected service provider has the appropriate language expertise, and that they can deliver analytics & technology assisted solutions built for the nuances inherent to CJK languages.
Please join us for an insightful discussion during which our panelists will also share relevant experiences, so that your organization is equipped to develop comprehensive checklists and guidelines towards selecting the right service provider for your eDiscovery work.
