Discovery Solutions that Drive Value
Epiq can meet a range of corporate discovery needs including data processing, collection, forensics, analysis, and more.
The data boom has created many discovery obstacles, with large amounts of information requiring quick and efficient processing, collection, and analysis. With cross-border matters involving Japanese enterprises, it critical to partner with a speedy and efficient provider that offers local convenience with a global reach.
Partner with Epiq for Discovery Needs in Japan
Epiq has been working closely with global law firms and corporations to solve eDiscovery obstacles in Asia since 2008. We currently have 13 offices and 5 data centres in the Asia Pacific region, one being in Tokyo. We offer unparalleled support for matters involving cross-border litigation, class actions, regulatory inquiries, international arbitration, and internal investigations. Having professionals in region provides us with the tools to help you efficiently and expediently manage projects in the diverse legal and regulatory landscapes that exist in Asia and abroad.
Cutting edge technologies
Epiq’s highly efficient and globally configured technologies will satisfy your discovery needs for eDiscovery, processing, document review, forensics, collections, data analysis, information governance, and contract review. Our solutions are customizable, and we can scale up or down depending on your specific matter requirements. Services can also be scaled during the project lifecycle to meet fluctuating demands and tight deadlines. This provides valuable cost control and risk management benefits.
Regular audits and risk assessments are combined with an advanced intelligence network to evaluate potential security risks, so our clients can have confidence in the technology we utilize.
Subject matter experts with local language capabilities
Our consultants and project managers have a deep bench of industry knowledge with auto manufacturing, pharmaceutical and chemical matters, IP litigation, human resources violations, third-party committee investigations, and cross-border regulatory issues. We staff experts and deploy technology with Japanese language capabilities to ensure that global matters progress smoothly and efficiently.
Epiq has a local and global presence so support can be directly available wherever the need arises. Our regulatory and investigative expertise includes responding to requests from the United States SEC or DOJ, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, safety committee investigations, and other inquires lead by Japan or a foreign government.
Since Japan has a reciprocal agreement with the European Union to follow GDPR rules when dealing with data privacy issues concerning a mix of European and Japanese data, it is paramount to partner with a provider that can navigate these waters. Epiq has extensive GDPR expertise and can help create a global strategy to address any data privacy matters that arise.
Unmatched cross-border experience
Epiq’s team can offer strategic advice and assistance with complicated cross-border issues involving multiple languages. This includes CJK character set processing capabilities, facilitating cross-border transfers to the United States, data hosting services directly in Japan, and internal collaboration with cross-border legal teams with dual-time support.
Oftentimes, forensics and collections carry global components. Epiq’s global digital forensics and collections team can ensure your organization’s data is preserved and collected quickly, securely, and defensibly. Our forensic experts work with proven, advanced technologies to set the standard for a methodical and defensible forensic analysis and data collection approach.
Proactive discovery planning
We understand that Japan currently has no legal discovery procedures and is in the beginning stages of legal technology adoption. During transitional periods, we can offer insight and introduction to our eDiscovery services for domestic litigation, internal arbitration, investigations, and more. We will consult on the best technologies for your projects and customize according to demands. With local language support and global discovery expertise, Epiq is the best partner to meet current and future legal discovery and operational goals.
Schedule a meeting to discuss Epiq’s discovery solutions for every step of your matter and determine which of our local or global capabilities would be the best fit for your organization. We will provide the right mix of people, process, and technology with scalable options and predictable pricing.
