E-Discovery Consulting and Ernst & Young have again joined forces to present 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 event will build on from the success of the inaugural New Zealand eDiscovery Conference earlier in 2013 which attracted over 100 participants and was hailed as a great success by attendees and vendors alike.  Most firms involved in litigation were represented in some capacity, including senior lawyers, barristers, in-house legal counsel and government departments.

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.

Navigating the eDiscovery landscape

In today’s digital world the increasing sources and volumes of electronic information is making the discovery process more challenging. The eDiscovery process is now an unavoidable part of any litigation or investigation. For practitioners this is adding new challenges, which require a greater understanding of the best practices and tools to manage electronic information.

To successfully conduct electronic discovery under the new discovery rules it is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of the entire electronic discovery process. If electronic discovery is not conducted properly it can result in many unnecessary costs.

The 2nd Annual New Zealand eDiscovery Conference has been specifically tailored to suit the New Zealand e-discovery landscape.The event will provide a practical insight of the e-discovery process, looking to equip legal professionals with the skills and awareness of the tools and practices that can simplify the discovery process.

Taking the event to another level

The conference has been taken to another level for 2014 with the programme featuring an attractive array of new topics and speakers, including leading eDiscovery experts and practitioners from New Zealand and abroad. Internationally renowned eDiscovery expert and senior counsel Browning Marean from DLA Piper in the United States will be delivering the International Keynote session. His Honour Judge David Harvey is back again to present the Judicial Keynote, looking at the importance of eDiscovery from a judicial perspective.

The conference concludes with a networking drinks function where delegates will be able to interact and discuss the talking points of the day.
