EDRM Co-Founder George Socha, will be returning for the second consecutive year to Technology in Practice 2015.
George Socha is the president and founder of Socha Consulting LLC, an electronic discovery consulting firm; co-founder of ABIKOS; co-founder of Apersee; and co-founder of EDRM. In 2003 he and Tom Gelbmann launched the Socha-Gelbman Electronic Discovery Survey, now Apersee (apersee.com) and in 2005 they started EDRM (edrm.net).
Mr. Socha is an advisor and expert witness who focuses on the full range of electronic discovery activities. His clients include corporations, governmental agencies, legal vertical market software and services providers, investment firms and law firms. Before launching his consulting firm, George spent 16 years as a litigation attorney in private practice. He received his law degree from Cornell Law School and his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Socha will be joined by Tiana Van Dyk, Manager of Ediscovery & Litigation Support at Burnet, Duckworth and Palmer in Calgary, and a regular contributor to the EDRM. These two industry thought leaders will be discussing how organizations who are dealing with cross-border litigation have often learned the hard way that ediscovery concerns can impact case outcomes. During their session, you will start to understand the issues you may face including privacy concerns, the transfer of data, jurisdictional differences on how metadata can be used, best practices for addressing those issues, and tactics and strategies to help reduce the risks and costs associated with cross-border ediscovery.
