Here is another case related to Section 1782 of the U.S. code. It’s certainly interesting to see this case law developing.

Not being a lawyer myself, I’m not going to comment on the legal issues of the case. Rather the author covers all this in detail in the article and I would suggest a thorough read of the piece to help with that. However, having followed this carefully, surely this has to be destined (at some point anyway) to go to higher Supreme Court given the divergent views across the US legal landscape?

Here at Alvarez & Marsal, we are seeing an increase in discovery-related work associated with international arbitration matters - be it in the form of helping formulate and respond to issues, managing relevant document sets - specifically looking for documents to be exhibited, or analysing complex and disparate data sets to build models used during expert evidence by the relevant accountants and/or economists.

Data and documents can be central to any legal proceeding regardless of whether there is a common law discovery or disclosure process, and it is essential that these are appropriately collected, managed and analysed to avoid subsequent issues due to incompleteness, inaccuracy or error!
