Electronic Surveillance and Offshore Legal Communications


"Electronic Surveillance amd Offshore Legal Communications" is a June 12, 2008 editorial essay about a declaratory judgment action filed the prior month, NMH v. Bush et al. (D.D.C. 2008). NMH v. Bush appears to many readers as an attack against the LPO industry generally, which is incorrect according to the plaintiff, a law firm that serves as both counsel and a party to the case.

This response was prepared by Michael Geske, C.O.O. of Aphelion Legal Solutions, which is an LPO and discovery consultancy. Aphelion argues that NMH v. Bush faces potentially fatal procedural hurdles. Moreover, according to Aphelion, the plaintiff's reqests for relief, if granted, would immediately and adversely affect the interests of every US law firm with a foreign office and every US business with an overseas business partner.

This piece does not address substantive responses to the legal and factual theories underlying NMH v. Bush.
