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

One week away from the New Zealand eDiscovery Conference

March 12th, 2014

We are now less than one week away from the 2nd Annual New Zealand eDiscovery Conference. The event is being held in Auckland at the Stamford Plaza on the 19th of March. 

The event will provide an awareness of the evolving issues and complexities in managing electronic information, and importantly, provide delegates with a practical guide and tips to mastering the discovery process. To manage electronic evidence in all its forms and successfully conduct electronic discovery under the NZ discovery rules, it is essential for all involved in litigation to have a greater understanding of the entire electronic discovery process.

Who is attending

Currently there are over 90 delegates registered for the conference, with many more showing interest and still registering in the final few days.

Registered attendees include many law firms, barristers, corporate organisations and government departments with many organisations involved in litigation are represented in some capacity. Current firms attending include –

The 2014 event will build on the success of the inaugural event in 2013 which attracted over 100 participants. The conference has now developed into New Zealand’s leading eDiscovery and legal technology conference, providing a platform for New Zealand legal professionals to develop their knowledge in this fast-changing area.
