Helping Legal Professionals Navigate Information Governance and New Data Challenges
ATLANTA – January 19, 2015 – DTI, a global legal process outsourcing (LPO) company providing eDiscovery, managed services and litigation support, and its wholly owned training company, LitWorks™, announced today a new LitWorks eDiscovery and Litigation Support Professional training course in the UK. LitWorks developed and will deliver the course with Espion, a leading forensics and eDisclosure service provider. The programme will take place February 23-27, 2015 in London.
Thomas Bonk, vice president of professional services at DTI, said: “The inaugural UK course offered by LitWorks and Espion in October drew overwhelming interest and record attendance. We see this as a reflection of the growing global awareness of evolving technologies and rules, and their potential impact on the litigation process. Course content is continuously updated to address the dynamic challenges in litigation support, and the February 2015 course will include new material on the Internet of Things (IOT) and best practices in enterprise information governance.”
Mark Wiley, Espion training manager, said: “We are pleased to be working with LitWorks to deliver litigation support education to solicitors, paralegals and litigation support staff in the UK. LitWorks delivers a rich, practical education experience that turns legal professionals into leaders within their corporation or law firm.”
The five-day course, LitWorks eDiscovery and Litigation Support Professional Training, provides litigation support professionals with a practical understanding of CPR Practice Direction 31B, addressing the disclosure of electronic documents. Participants are equipped with key skills to review a case, assess its needs, identify and reach agreement on disclosure issues such as volume and source of ESI, data collection methods and form of production, to avoid costly disclosure disputes later in the process.
The course will be led by Kimberly Grippe-Meyer, subject matter expert and national training and development manager for LitWorks. Grippe-Meyer has more than 25 years of experience in the field and has trained Fortune 500 corporations, AmLaw 100 firms, government agencies and litigation service provider organisations.
