The tensions encountered in arbitrations between parties from different legal systems are magnified when it comes to the burden, expense and intrusion of exchanging electronically stored information. Document exchange is very often the most time- and cost-intensive phase of a dispute process. Achieving an appropriate balance between the cost of producing information and the value of the information in the just determination of the issues being arbitrated, requires parties and arbitrators to carefully manage requests, responses and expectations.
In conjunction with the publication of Mayer Brown’s newsletter International Arbitration: Perspectives on Disclosure, Data Privacy and Electronically Stored Information, our International Arbitration group is pleased to invite you to a series of three 30-minute teleconferences in which experienced arbitration and e-discovery lawyers will discuss practical issues concerning the electronic disclosure of documents. We will also address the important related issue of data privacy in the special context of International Arbitration proceedings and offer insights into the ways in which such processes are best managed.
