Indochine Counsel is proud to announce its contribution to A Guide to Practical E-Discovery in Asia, a multi-jurisdictional guide to E-discovery in the Asian region. Authored by Bryan Tan, Michael Lew, and Benjamin Ang the Guide covers nine jurisdictions in the region from Korea and Japan to Vietnam, Singapore, and Indonesia.

The Vietnam chapter is contributed by Dang The Duc, managing partner of Indochine Counsel, and Le Hong Bao Chuong, associate in the Ho Chi Minh City office. They have worked for years in the technology sector and are familiar with fledgling rules of E-discovery in the country.

According to Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for E-discovery Software, the global E-discovery market will jump from $1.7 billion in 2013 to $2.9 billion by 2017. In addition, most of this growth will take place in international markets outside the traditional US market. There is still much to be learnt from the US experiences in E-discovery, both in techniques and best practices. As Asia’s rapid digitisation gathers pace, the volume of evidence and the familiarity of the legal system with technology will demand that E-discovery be implemented to manage this process to aid the administration of justice. The Guide is an effort to begin this process of learning and implementation in the Asian region.
