Seminars 2014


July 30, 2014- Joint seminar in Detroit with JBSD and JAPIA


In conjunction with the Japan Business Society of Detroit and the Japan Association of Auto Parts Industries, Ji2 and Porter and Wright have organized a seminar that focuses on eDiscovery challenges related to antitrust cases.

By now, it is quite common that whenever a company is investigated or has pending litigation, e-Discovery (the process whereby electronic stored information is collected for review purposes), places significant burden on that company’s financial and business operations. This seminar will focus on the e-Discovery issues related to antitrust investigations of Japanese companies -- something that seems to be occurring with greater frequency.


When : July 30, 2014 2:00 - 3:30pm -Registration begins at 1:30 p.m.

Where : Holiday Inn Livonia, 17123 N Laurel Park Dr. Livonia, MI 48152 United States
