George Socha and Tom Gelbmann, two names well known in the e-discovery field for their annual Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery Survey and for their roles in developing the Electronic Discovery Reference Model, have launched Apersee, a website that aims to become the premier system for helping litigation professionals choose e-discovery providers and products. The site features the Selection Engine, a tool that lets you pick and rank the criteria that are important to you and then find the vendors that most closely match.

I have written a more detailed review of Apersee at the Catalyst E-Discovery Blog.

E-discovery in cases under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act can raise many hurdles. Documents are likely to be in multiple languages. The quantity of data is likely to be huge. And the data is apt to be housed with multiple custodians in any number of global locations and in any variety of formats.

Along with Jim Eidelman and Chris Toomey of Catalyst Consulting, I have just helped write a white paper on this topic for Catalyst Repository Systems. The white paper, Navigating ESI Challenges in an FCPA Investigation, offers guidance on how to address these and other issues.
