This is something I have posted about previously and something I take a specific interest in. As I said before, it’s certainly interesting to see this case law developing.

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!
