Interesting Electronic Discovery Session

Jim Vint (Managing Director at FTI), Nick Childs (also with FTI in London), and Vivian Tero (Program Manager of IDC's Compliance Infrastructure Service) will be speaking at an upcoming webinar on the 19th of November regarding the use of financial, transaction and operational databases in e-disclosure.

This is a relatively new topic and one that is rapidly gaining momentum in the UK and Europe - FTI share that "while email has grabbed most of the headlines, structured data comprises the majority of information required for e-disclosure in legal and regulatory matters".

Further details and registration can be completed
here. From previous discussions and case studies, this may indeed be worth a listen.
