FTI Consulting Shares Thought Leadership On Key E-discovery Trends At LegalTech New York Conference

NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that its FTI Technology business segment will present on key e-discovery issues during three educational sessions at the LegalTech New York 2014 conference this week. Legal practitioners can earn up to 4.5 continuing legal education credits from most states by attending each of the three sessions on February 5, 2014 at the New York Hilton.

"These panels are designed to provide practical insight and advice on the key challenges impacting e-discovery technology and processes," said Mike Kinnaman, a Senior Managing Director in the FTI Technology segment. "We've enlisted an all-star group of experts from corporations, law firms, industry analysts and the bench to help attendees better prepare for the trends that are shaping the future of e-discovery."

The panel sessions, all to be held in the Trianon Ballroom of the New York Hilton located at 1335 Avenue of the Americas on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, are as follows:

Better Together: Predictive Coding & Analytics on Three Common Use Cases ( 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. EST)

Predictive coding is a powerful tool to help speed legal review, but it isn't a silver bullet. Analytics can help supplement predictive coding by visually clarifying its results, accelerating review of the remaining materials and assisting in trial and deposition preparation. Using a case study approach, industry experts will discuss workflow options incorporating predictive coding and analytics for three key scenarios: Hart-Scott-Rodino Second Requests, internal investigations and post-production trial preparation. Session attendees will learn about:

  • key analytics tools available for the legal review process;
  • processes needed to supplement the use of predictive coding as part of a defensible legal review workflow; and
  • case study examples of predictive coding and analytics working together on a Second-Request, internal investigation and trial prep.

Advice from Counsel: Where Does E-Discovery End and Information Governance Begin? ( 2:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. EST)

For the fifth consecutive year, the " Advice from Counsel" study captures the top e-discovery trends for corporate counsel of Fortune 1000 companies. This year, the study focuses on the intersection of e-discovery and information governance. Both in-house and outside counsel attendees will learn how leading-edge companies are approaching information governance and how this will impact legal processes for years to come. Session attendees will learn about:

  • key business drivers and benefits of conducting information governance projects and implementing policies;
  • how to leverage e-discovery technology and processes for information governance purposes; and
  • advice from peers on developing an information governance action plan.

Global Discovery: Asia, Europe and Beyond ( 3:45 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST)

Even if you are not handling matters in Asia or Europe today, you will be within the next three years. From country-specific data privacy laws to cultural and language differences, U.S.-based companies and firms face a number of challenges when conducting cost-effective and defensible e-discovery practices overseas. Incorporating survey results from leading e-discovery practitioners in Asia and Europe, this panel will provide U.S.-based attorneys with a framework for managing multinational discovery matters effectively. Session attendees will learn about:

  • the evolving data privacy regulatory environment across Asia and Europe;
  • common cross-border scenarios and key "dos and don'ts" for maintaining data privacy compliance; and
  • case studies of recent multinational discovery projects and additional resources.

In addition to these educational sessions, FTI Technology will demonstrate Ringtail® e-discovery software in Booth 2110 at the LegalTech New York 2014 conference.
