New York, NY (Vocus) January 19, 2009
The Litigation Consulting Services unit of First Advantage Corporation (NASDAQ: FADV) announced today that it will host a day of educational sessions entitled "The Globalization of Legal Technology" at LegalTech® New York 2009. This will be the first time in the history of LegalTech that an entire educational track will address international considerations in legal technology and its application.
"All eyes are on the global financial crisis, and litigation and government investigations are expected to increase dramatically in 2009. Managing complex, multi-jurisdictional legal actions effectively is a high priority for our attendees," says Henry P. Dicker, vice president of Incisive Media Legal Events and executive director of LegalTech. "With that in mind, we assembled this program in conjunction with First Advantage's Litigation Consulting Services team, bringing a top-notch roster of speakers to deliver relevant, actionable information at this critical time."
Three panel discussions will examine: the effect of data protection law on data collection and discovery in the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia; the role that technology plays in facilitating relationships between corporations and government agencies; and how to overcome practical, technical and cultural hurdles when managing global operations. Addressing these topics will be technology experts, forensic analysts, practice support professionals and attorneys from First Advantage; DLA Piper US LLP; Ledjit Consulting; Mallesons Stephen Jacques; McCarthy Tétrault LLP; Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP; Proskauer Rose LLP; Ropes & Gray LLP; Sullivan & Cromwell LLP; TozziniFreire Advogados and Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP.
George I. Rudoy, director of global practice technology and information services at Shearman & Sterling LLP, notes, "It was only a few years ago that only global firms like Shearman required an understanding of global legal technology. Now, because of the greater interdependence of world economies, governments and regulatory agencies, virtually every law firm that represents public corporations, regardless of where it operates, needs to be versed in managing both data and operations internationally. As chair of the Educational Advisory Board for LegalTech, I found a lot of support from my advisory board colleagues to dedicate an entire educational track to examining the intersecting concerns of privacy, information security, redundancy, culture, oversight and logistics that make this work so complex and challenging."
"The Globalization of Legal Technology" will take place at LegalTech on Feb. 2, 2009 at the Hilton New York hotel. In addition to sponsoring the track, First Advantage will also be exhibiting at LegalTech in booth #1405. More information can be found at http://www.legaltechshow.com.
