Litigation and investigations are increasingly global in scope and can expose unprepared teams to risk
Organizations that do business outside the U.S. or with foreign entities face the necessity of dealing with data in international jurisdictions for discovery, regulatory requests and internal investigations. Unique problems come along with this necessity - including data privacy issues, security concerns, language and cultural barriers and logistical headaches.
When facing legal or regulatory challenge with international factors, having a partner who not only understands the legal landscape, but also has experience and/or teams in the local jurisdiction can be the difference between a relatively painless process and an overwhelming problem.
Working with FTI helps reduce your international legal risk during cross-border matters:

Second Request for a Large Defense Contractor
With nearly two terabytes of data located in five different countries including the EU, a large defense contractor contacted FTI to collect, process, review and produce documents under International Traffic in Arms (ITAR) Regulations, which required multilingual US citizens to conduct the review.
The FTI team advised on data privacy then collected and processed close to two TB of data. FTI used advanced analytics software to cull the data set from 5.4 million to 2.6 million documents. Predictive coding further reduced the population to 700,000 documents. Using multilingual review attorneys, FTI produced 480,000 documents within eight weeks, meeting all deadlines imposed by the government. The project came in under budget and FTI’s client saved over $1 million.
