(PRESS RELEASE) Prague, 4th April, 2013: E-Discovery Europe s.r.o. (“E-Discovery”), organizer of the first ever LawTech Europe Congress that took place on 12th November, 2012, has announced today the start of its preparations for the 2013 edition of this successful event, which is planned to be the largest congress on electronic evidence, computer forensics and legal technology to be held in Central and Eastern Europe this year. Following on from last year’s very successful oneday event, the LawTech Europe Congress 2013 will cover two whole days, 21st and 22nd October, and will introduce some new features that bring even more value to its delegates.

Last year’s LawTech Europe Congress attracted more than 650 delegates from all around the world, including the Czech Republic (66% of attendees), United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Sweden, the USA, Israel, Russia, United Arab Emirates, and many other countries. The topics of the congress covered a wide range of areas, such as the influence of electronically saved information on the level of bribery and corruption, on-line dispute resolution (“ODR”), the hottest news in the fields of Cloud computing, electronic evidence, legal issues and new methods of forensic investigation, and digital evidence.

This year, the congress’s main focus will be on electronic evidence, forensic investigation and legal technology. Apart from expanding the Congress over two days instead of one, and offering a full programme of presentations, seminars and discussion panels, the organizers will also put a new emphasis on practical hands-on education. All exhibitors will be encouraged to make as many demonstrations and walk-throughs as possible to highlight the practical uses of the new technologies and processes to delegates, whilst pre-arranged corporate exchange sessions will be introduced, where attendees and sponsors can meet with decision-making and highly influential delegates on a one-to-one basis.

Frederick Gyebi-Ababio, Managing Director of E-Discovery, commented on the next edition of
LawTech Europe Congress:

“We are very proud of the huge success of the first ever LawTech Congress, which, we believe, laid the foundations for a tradition of well-established and recognized congresses that will keep on attracting the attention of some of the world’s greatest experts on electronic evidence and legal technologies. The feedback from our delegates confirmed that this event was unique in the CEE region in terms of magnitude and depth of topics covered. We are also very happy that personalities such as Richard Susskind and Pavel Zeman agreed to participate last year, and we will do our best to deliver another group of first-class speakers and solution providers in 2013.”

In 2012, LawTech Europe delegates came from many diverse sectors, including law, academia, IT, information security, energy, media, the public sector, retail, finance, and telecoms. This year, the organizers plan to again set the congress agenda so that it will be of interest to a wide range of professions, from lawyers to court experts, police, national security agents, auditors, prosecutors, IT experts, and C-level executives.
