Millnet Expert to Speak on Predictive Coding Case on Panels at LawTech Europe Congress

Thursday, October 27, 2016

On Monday and Tuesday, November 7-8, 2016, the annual LawTech Europe Congress will take place at the Management Centre Europe in Brussels.  This event provides a platform for discussion, networking and learning among experts in digital evidence, forensic investigations, data analytics, cyber security, and other law and technology topics.  Millnet, an Advanced Discovery company, is pleased to be a sponsor of the event.

Additionally, Millnet Senior eDiscovery Consultant Kathleen Porter Kristiansen will appear on two panels discussing the landmark Pyrrho case approving the use of predictive coding in the UK, on which she worked:

  • Cooperation and Articulation – Seeking Judicial Approval for TAR and Predictive Coding
    • “The UK Pyrrho case shows the value of cooperation between the parties (where possible) and the importance of articulating the reasons why it is right to use predictive coding or other technology to give disclosure. The latter becomes even more important where cooperation fails. Karyn Harty won the arguments for the use of predictive coding, in the face of strong opposition, in Irish Bank Resolution v Quinn. Edward Spencer achieved an agreement and a consent order in the English case of Pyrrho. Steven Whitaker, as Senior Master, gave the judgment in Goodale v Ministry of Justice which first urged the use of advanced technology for disclosure. Kathleen Kristiansen of Millnet is a part of the team who provided the technical expertise to Taylor Wessing in Pyrrho to EE2. You could not hope for a better team to explain the importance of cooperation and articulation.”
  • When Technical Writing and Legal Drafting Meet: Pyrrho Participants Discuss the Witness Statement
    • “Master Matthews states in Pyrrho that the landmark UK judgement ‘owes a considerable debt’ to Edward Spencer of Taylor Wessing’s witness statement on predictive coding. This interactive session serves to provide a behind the scenes look into the drafting of the witness statement with the author himself and Kathleen Kristiansen, a member of the consulting team at Millnet that advised Taylor Wessing on the technology of predictive coding and assisted review.”
