Companies that conduct business in Asia must be prepared to produce electronic documents to domestic or international regulators, courts or arbitral tribunals, and to retrieve documents from Asia for production in their home jurisdiction. It is important, particularly in Asia, to be sensitive to the varying cultural contexts and jurisdictional frameworks concerning the production of electronic data.
Please join us as Mayer Brown lawyers, including authors of our recently published Electronic Discovery Deskbook (PLI 2009), summarize key points relating to e-discovery in major Asian jurisdictions and offer planning advice for US and European-based companies to manage documents in Asia.
Topics to be discussed include:
- Differentiating jurisdictions with developed regimes for production of electronic documents from others
- Identifying and managing applicable data privacy restrictions
- Ensuring that systems in Asia-based offices and subsidiaries are compatible with US- and European-based systems
