Guest post: eDiscovery opportunities in the Brexit difficulty

chris dale

There is a lot of uninformed comment around at the moment, not least from the politicians who got us into this mess. Anyone who claims to know where we will be by this time tomorrow, by the end of next month, by the end of next year, by the end of the decade is fooling themselves and you.

I don’t intend to add to it here save only in relation to the small corner of the business world which is my special interest. What will Brexit mean for those whose business involves eDiscovery and its related subjects of privacy, data protection and the rest?

Comment: Brexit and the Legal IT sector impact.


Brexit! Shock and horror! The end of the world as we know it. Will reduced immigration and an economic downturn force Charles Christian to be out crop picking in the Fens?

It is worth paying attention to. Axiom has won work from seven global banks to help them prepare for forthcoming changes in derivatives regulation across the European Union, United States and Asia, leveraging its tech and a team of over 300 legal, negotiation and regulatory specialists trained in derivatives documentation.
