International eDiscovery and Collections

The Challenge of International eDiscovery

Today’s increasingly global economy can create numerous issues for parties to litigation. As your business crosses international borders, meeting the requirements of the U.S. legal system can be challenging – especially when you’re dealing with information governance (IG) issues and electronically stored information (ESI) spread over multiple countries with their own laws, languages and cultures. What’s more, international eDiscovery is continually evolving, so you need to stay up-to-date on the latest foreign rules and enforcement agencies. To add to the complexity, there’s an inherent conflict between U.S. eDiscovery rules and the EU Data Protection Directive – and there are proposed changes to the EU rules to keep in mind.

As your company grows, the data you must manage for potential litigation increases exponentially. You will have to navigate complex international law issues in eDiscovery collection and cross-border transfers. But how can you do that effectively and efficiently?
