Kroll Ontrack leads discussion of UK litigators

16 May 2014 by Adrienn Toth

On Monday Kroll Ontrack sponsored the annual conference of the Commercial Litigation Association (CLAN). The day saw commercial litigators from around England come together in the auditorium of Hogan Lovells’ London office to discuss the latest issues in commercial litigation, share knowledge and hear from subject matter experts in various fields.

The day kicked off with the Honourable Sir Terence Etherton, Chancellor of the High Court updating litigators on developments in the Chancery Division of the High Court. His keynote speech is summarised by John Hyde on the Law Society Gazette website here.

Discussions progressed to cover the latest updates and topics such as cost budgeting and litigation funding were, as expected, at the forefront of litigators’ minds.

Kroll Ontrack’s Daniel Kavan presented an interactive session with Hogan Lovells partner Neil Mirchandani, bringing litigators up to date on the latest best practices and technologies to manage their litigation cases using principles of legal project management.

Using live feedback technology, the audience was able to anonymously vote on various issues in this session. When Daniel asked litigators on the use of predictive coding in the UK, results showed that lawyers were still finding their way:


Daniel shared information about how the technology works and how it can be applied, and most litigators fed back that they would consider using the technology in their next case. Further information about Kroll Ontrack’s predictive coding technology can be found here.

The day ended with giving litigators in-house counsel’s perspective on using social media in edisclosure, followed by drinks at which lawyers were able to ask Kroll Ontrack representatives more about how predictive coding is changing the face of litigation and investigations in the UK and across Europe.
