The collapse of the Great Southern Group in 2009 resulted in the largest commercial electronic hearing that has run in the Supreme Court of Victoria. A total of 23,000 investors were affected by the collapse gave rise to a significant number of proceedings Australiawide. It was decided the Supreme Court of Victoria would manage the 80+ Victorian matters already issued in the County Court, plus those issued in other states and that they would be stayed pending the outcome of the main trial.
Epiq had an established on-site server at the client’s office, which allowed a new case to be supported. Epiq sent a Shanghai People’s Republic of China National Representative to physically work in the client’s offices and run searches to be reviewed.
- Data not containing sensitive information was delivered by the client to our data center in Hong Kong, who then determined if it could be reviewed outside of Asia.
- Once that determination was made, the production was sent to U.S.-based regulators.
- Any sensitive data identified was further subjected to an expert for document review and redaction before our client delivered redacted versions to Hong Kong.
Epiq delivered a solution that satisfied the client’s need for on-site support and allowed a workflow for the client to identify and produce documents that potentially contained sensitive information. We processed and hosted over 100K records, sent over 44 productions from Hong Kong to a U.S.-based regulator, and delivered disclosures in less than two days.
