The NZ E-Discovery Blog  Facilitating proportionate and efficient e-discovery

A week in Australian E-Discovery

June 29th, 2012

I am currently getting back to work that I had to put on hold as I visited Australia last week on an E-Discovery information gathering mission. The week involved meeting up with a number of providers and players in the ediscovery space in Australia to evaluate what was happening across the Tasman, as well as looking to build further links to offer to my clients in New Zealand. I was grateful to the many people that made time to meet with me and to discuss further opportunities.

The main part of the week though was attending the Chilli IQ E-Discovery Summit.

The E-Discovery Summit was another successful event, focussing on live issues in the E-Discovery landscape. I won’t give a full report of the Summit myself, but instead direct you toward the comprehensive overview by Jenny Katrivesis of Chilli IQ. Jenny’s overview is available here

For me the two key themes I took from the conference were:

  • The move of Australian law firms along the LPO path; and
  • From a global perspective looking at how tools like Predictive Coding are equipping legal teams with more options to review documents.

In addition to all the very informative sessions the conference was chaired superbly yet again by Warren Dunn of Ernst and Young.

I cannot finish without also mentioning the final session of the conference by Peter William’s from Deloitte’s Centre of the Edge. If anyone is looking for a speaker to deliver a ‘lively’ and informative session on the importance of what social media can do in your business then Peter is your man.

Thanks to Chilli IQ for putting on another successful event, together with the support of the many sponsors of the event.

I am sure Chilli IQ is already planning on how they can improve on the conference again for next year.
