AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- RenewData®, a leading provider of services for the discovery, archiving, and governance of electronically stored information (ESI), today announced its Vice President of Professional Services, Vance McMurry, will speak at Legal IT Asia taking place on November 18 - 19, 2009 at the Yuyang Hotel in Beijing, China. Speaking to an audience of international law firms, in-house legal departments and legal IT solutions providers, McMurry will lead an in-depth discussion around how law firms and corporations in Asia need to be aware of US litigation tactics.
McMurry's session entitled "Data Knows No Boundaries" will cover the importance of properly understanding and proactively implementing eDiscovery preparedness due to the far reaching nature of US litigation procedural and evidentiary rules and their implications for multi-national corporations. McMurry will discuss examples of US based litigation which has driven eDiscovery in Asia and other parts of the world. He will also discuss the roadmap which governs eDiscovery in the United States and the trends in 2010 in eDiscovery.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for RenewData to confer with our international counterparts, and discuss the importance of eDiscovery in any language," said Vance McMurry, vice president of professional services for RenewData. "Although the discovery process is often the same, different countries have diverse standards for data handling, privacy and export, and it is important to understand the differences in order to properly comply."
RenewData has been involved in multiple eDiscovery projects with an international scope. In fact, of the thousands of collections RenewData forensic experts have completed for corporations, law firms, and government agencies, many entailed multi-national organizations which required collections to be made in such locations as Spain, Malaysia, and Thailand. Many of these forensic data collections involved copying hundreds of forensic images and active data at multiple locations, many of which involved data in excess of 10 terabytes.
