Program Overview

Document collection and discovery has become an increasingly important and fraught issue in China. U.S. litigations often require the collection and review of documents in China in ways that conflict with Chinese laws, such as laws on state secrecy and financial privacy. How candiscovery be conducted in China while avoiding legal financial, and ethical problems? And what about internal investigations, which often require reviews of sensitive documents and materials, which may also implicate Chinese laws and regulations?
