Far East Review: Experts Weigh In on China & Japan's Growing eDiscovery Markets
This article was originally published on Legaltech News.
eDiscovery use in China and Japan is growing exponentially, spurred by the demand from data privacy regulations and investigations, and the use of tools like predictive coding.
Both the world's biggest economies after the United States, China and Japan have not traditionally been big players in the e-discovery market. But with an increasingly global economy, the advent of national cybersecurity and data localization laws, and growing international M&A activity, these two economic titans are steadily growing their e-discovery operations and expertise.
To understand what is driving this trend and how e-discovery is unique to each country, ALM spoke with legal professionals with e-discovery experience in the Far East. Here are highlights from the interview:
