Discovery Solutions for Cross Border Matters
Epiq can help you meet every discovery challenge that surfaces locally or abroad – from simple data collection to managed services partnerships and beyond.
As new data sources emerge, collection and analysis present more challenges for litigation, arbitration, and investigations. With cross-border matters occurring more frequently in South Korea, it critical to partner with a provider that offers local convenience with a global reach and has a range of customizable discovery capabilities.
Epiq can Answer all your Discovery Questions
Epiq has been working closely with global law firms and corporations to solve eDiscovery challenges in Asia since 2008. We currently have 13 offices and 5 data centres in the Asia Pacific region, one being in Seoul. We have unmatched support for cross-border litigation, international arbitration, internal investigations, and more. When local needs in South Korea emerge, we are equipped to partner on a variety of matters from eDiscovery for domestic litigation to legal transformation consulting. 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 around the globe.
We offer a range of services and solutions to meet your discovery requirements for cross-border litigation, internal investigations, international arbitration, regulatory requests, early case assessment, local cases, and more. A few of our globally-integrated capabilities include end-to-end eDiscovery managed services, document review, forensics, and contract analytics.
Epiq can help any legal team build and enforce consistent discovery processes across geographies, creating global efficiencies and delivering better legal outcomes. The key is deploying the right technology and customizing it according to your needs with the best people to guide the processes. We also offer the ability to scale up or down depending on your specific matter requirements. This provides valuable cost control and risk management benefits.
Epiq clients also have the flexible choice of per-GB/per-custodian pricing or the cost predictability and control of fixed-fee managed services to handle high volumes of data efficiently and within tight deadlines.
Subject matter experts with global competence
Our experienced, accountable consultants and project managers deliver the right resources, in the right place, at the right time for matters of any size or locale. You can expect deep industry experience with electronic products, IP litigation, trade secret litigation, contract breaches, human resources violations, fraud, trade conflicts, and other cross-border regulatory issues.
Our expertise includes responding to requests from the United States SEC and other agencies abroad. We also fully appreciate the importance of global competence when arbitration invokes the need for a document review platform, as parties could be located anywhere in the world, or the arbitration tribunal selected under contract may be a country other than South Korea. In addition to document review, we can add other services to meet specific arbitration needs including court reporting, remote hearings, TMX collaborative platform for case preparation, or bundle printing capabilities.
Equipped to tackle complicated cross-border matters
Epiq’s team can offer strategic advice and assistance with complicated cross-border issues including litigation or arbitration involving a South Korean organization listed or doing business in the United States and organizations based in the United States with South Korea subsidiaries. Entering into a managed services partnership with us will allow for deeper value-added services and revenue streams. This provides a better chance for cross-border success grounded in fiscally sensible investments.
Additional complex matters we can assist with include cross-border regulatory requests and corporate internal investigations. We can help you scale up to meet quick turn demands. Our technology expertise can also help you scale down the actual requirements. A key discovery tool that promotes cost reduction and maintains efficiency is using AI-based technology to significantly reduce your data set that needs to be reviewed.
Proactive planning for the future
We understand that South Korea currently lacks local discovery legal requirements 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. Another cost-effective option is our in-house cloud discovery platform, Epiq Discovery.
We can also provide a consultation regarding helpful offerings to guide legal transformation efforts – including cloud migration, flexible legal talent, spend analysis, and contract analysis. With local language support and global discovery expertise, Epiq is the best partner to meet current and future legal discovery and operational goals.
Data security as a top priority
Epiq maintains a full-time staff of certified information security professionals to manage our security program. Regular audits and risk assessments are combined with an advanced intelligence network to assess potential security risks. Our in-country data centres are highly secure, all with hardened exteriors sitting on dual power grids, employing generator backup, and 24/7/365 closed circuit and manned monitoring.
