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

Large number of Regulators attending the 2nd Annual New Zealand eDiscovery Conference

February 28th, 2014

There is a large contingent of delegates registered from regulatory organisations and government agencies for the 2nd Annual New Zealand eDiscovery Conference. The conference is taking place at the Stamford Plaza in Auckland on Wednesday the 19th of March 2014.

The Serious Fraud Office (SFO), Financial Markets Authority (FMA), Commerce Commission, Crown Law and the Inland Revenue are sending significant numbers to the event to learn more about this fast changing area.

It is pleasing to see the considerable interest from the Regulators as they continue to learn more about the eDiscovery process that will inevitably assist them with their investigations and inquiries.

The conference will provide greater awareness of the evolving issues and complexities in managing electronic information, issues that will continue to place greater pressures on all involved. To respond to these challenges the programme has been designed to focus on the best practices that can take the burden and cost out of managing information electronically.

The 2014 event will build on the success of the inaugural event in 2013 which attracted over 100 participants. The programme features new topics and speakers, including leading eDiscovery experts and practitioners from New Zealand and abroad. We currently have 17 speakers confirmed to speak at the conference. Internationally renowned eDiscovery expert Tom Gelbmann of Gelbmann & Associates, LLC will be delivering the International keynote, whilst leading international eDiscovery and technology Judge, His Honour Judge David Harvey is delivering the Judicial keynote.

In the programme this year we have a ‘Regulatory Session’, where Paul O’Neil, the Litigation Manager from the FMA will be delivering a session looking at eDiscovery and the management of evidence from a regulatory perspective. The session will be beneficial for other regulators, but also all others in attendance that frequently come up against Regulators.


Further details about the conference, including latest updates about speakers and the programme can be found on the conference page.
