New Pilot Scheme for e-Discovery: Impact on corporate information governance
8:00-9:30am . The Hong Kong Courts have announced a new Practice Direction (which became effective September 1, 2014) with a view to making the process of dealing with electronic documents both fair and cost-effective. As key Hong Kong industries become increasingly regulated, electronic information not only needs to be properly stored and easily accessible, it also needs to meet stringent records management and discovery obligations.
