As Posse List members know, especially members of Posse List Asia, e-discovery work in Asia has exploded. We have seen work expand in China, Japan and Korea with the greatest expansion in Australia. One company we have kept abreast of in the market is major player e.law Asia Pacific.

Scott Gillard is head of the e.Solutions team at e.law Asia Pacifc Pty Ltd. Scott has 15 years litigation consulting and project management experience in the legal, government and corporate market space and 9 years technical consulting, systems development and implementation experience in e-discovery as well as software design and development experience with regards to litigation support databases, e-discovery platforms and litigation workflow. Scott also has International litigation consulting and project management experience with a number of Legal Top 100 firms in the UK and US and Legal Top 20 firms in Australia.

Michael So is Asia Regional Director Based in the e.law Hong Kong office, Michael brings with him over 15 years experience in management, business development and project management in the Asia Pacific region. Having worked with various leading IT&T and software vendors in senior roles, Michael is passionate about technology and its emerging role in the legal industry. Michael’s experience with managing complex cross border projects makes him a perfect fit for our growing Asian operations. Michael is fluent in English and Chinese, and has extensive knowledge of all facets of litigation support in Asia.

We met with Scott last year at The Masters Conference and Michael So at last summer’s LexisNexis e-Discovery Conference in Hong Kong, and then caught up with the whole team in their corporate headquarters in Australia.
