A Japanese corporation’s European subsidiary received a hotline tip alleging a U.K. Bribery Act violation. Custodians resided in Europe and across Asia involving several countries’ data privacy laws, Counsel was wary of moving the data outside of Europe and Japan respectively.
Epiq was engaged to forensically collect, process, host, and review the data. Databases were set up in the U.K. and Japan under a very tight time frame.
- Multilingual staff in the U.K. and Japan at Epiq managed the multiple languages in the review in secure review facilities
- Experienced English- and Japanese-speaking project managers were used
- Daily summaries of the relevant parts of the Japanese “hot documents” were translated to English and provided to the law firm
Backed by global experience, a robust infrastructure, supported by local bilingual experts, and outstanding review teams, Epiq was able to fulfill the project’s requirement quickly and on budget, while complying with all applicable privacy laws in all jurisdictions.
