Topic: A Pathway for U.S. Attorneys to Do Business with Japanese Corporations
Masahiro Morimoto, CEO & Founder, UBIC, Inc.  

East Asia is home to a growing number of global companies that do a great deal of business in the United States. As a result, East Asia is also one of the fastest growing markets for American litigation services.

For American lawyers and law firms looking to build business with Asian corporations, Masahiro Morimoto’s recent book, eDiscovery—Japan, is a “must read” to better understand Japanese clients and the challenges and opportunities in Asian-language eDiscovery.

12:30 pm - 1:15 pm
Panel Discussion  Information Governance as a Global Priority: Some Thoughts Based on Recent U.S eDiscovery Case Law & Practice
Jason R. Baron, Esq., Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, moderator

U.S. legal procedure and practice is increasingly important to understand in a world of big data and U.S. and Asian companies with a global reach. Recent U.S. case law involving sanctions of corporations has highlighted the need to properly manage electronically stored information, both during litigation to meet preservation obligations, as well as and more importantly from the beginning of the recordkeeping lifecycle.  What constitutes defensible data policies for U.S. and Asian corporations doing business across borders?  What new developments in U.S. eDiscovery practice involving the use of sophisticated analytical tools and techniques might have value when thinking about information governance from a global, corporate perspective?  


- Denise E. Backhouse, Esq., Littler
- John L. Kapp, Shearman & Sterling
- Sandra Rampersaud, Esq., Cravath, Swaine & Moore, LLP
