Banks and financial institutions with operations in the United States, and those subject to US regulations, will be familiar with the sophisticated systems required to comply with advanced e-discovery regimes.
While the need to embrace e-discovery in banking and financial institutions has gained traction in jurisdictions such as England and Wales, Singapore and Australia, the use of e-discovery in Hong Kong litigation is not widespread.
The Hong Kong Judiciary will soon issue a new practice direction for a pilot scheme on e-discovery in the Commercial List of the High Court, which is expected to come into force in mid-2014. This will have a significant impact on banks and financial institutions operating in Hong Kong and the region.
Join us as we discuss these questions and explore issues about how the Hong Kong e-discovery practice direction is going to affect banks and financial institutions, and what they should watch out for to prepare for this.
