Squire Patton Boggs is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Haslam as an eDisclosure Project Manager in the London office. Mr. Haslam, formerly of Allvision Consulting which he founded in 1997, is a specialist in the field of eDisclosure and is well known throughout the UK eDisclosure community.
Mr. Haslam has nearly 20 years’ experience in eDisclosure matters and the technologies that support them, working on projects for law firms, clients and suppliers. He is a regular speaker at eDisclosure industry events and has written numerous white papers, op-ed pieces, and blog postings on eDisclosure issues. He is also known for his annual report on LegalTech and the Buyer’s Guide to eDisclosure Systems.
Mr. Haslam was part of the working party that produced the TCC Protocol and was the main contributor to the second version of its guidance notes. He continued to support that initiative, providing training to lawyers and the judiciary. The guide to eDisclosure that he produced for the TCC was cited in the recent Pyrrho Investments v MWB Property Ltd judgment. He is also a member of the LTC4 drafting group that produced the recently launched eDisclosure/Discovery competency plan.
Scott Kane, Partner and Chair of Squire Patton Boggs’ eDiscovery and Data Management Team, said: “Andrew’s arrival strengthens the significant eDisclosure expertise and best practices we can deliver seamlessly to our clients and lawyers across the globe.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Andrew to the firm,” said Laurence Winston, Head of the UK Litigation Team. “His appointment comes at a time when the UK legal profession is starting to absorb the implications of the Pyrrho judgment, and the demands for proportionate use of technology have never been higher. Andrew’s experience, and ability to provide an interface between the clients, us and the technology, will be a valuable asset as we deliver the level of competency in eDisclosure our clients require.”
