Planet Data is proud to announce that we are the exclusive eDiscovery vendor partner of the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) for 2015!



 


We recently had the chance to sit down with the organization's President-Elect, William Wang at their Annual Dinner last month. William shared his thoughts on the AABANY, some recent eDiscovery trends and challenges the legal industry faces today.

PD: Congratulations! We understand your term as President of the AABANY began April 1, 2015. What goals do you have for its members?

WW: I am very excited to take on the challenge of being AABANY President in 2015-2016. AABANY has grown tremendously in the past few years and I follow the footsteps of many great past AABANY presidents. Our membership recently eclipsed 1,100 in our last fiscal year. In terms of goals, I will focus on increasing member engagement. While our membership has grown, I would like our new members to get involved with our committees, which are the backbone of our organization. With a diverse and engaged membership, we can continue to thrive as one of NYC's specialty bar associations. We have big plans for our Fall Conference in 2015, which will be hosted by Cleary Gottlieb, and some special community events planned as well. I don't want to give too many spoilers, but this will be a very exciting and cutting edge year.

PD: A recent survey reported that law firms are seeing an increase in total case load over last year and that those cases are much larger than ever before. How does this affect the eDiscovery process from your point of view?

WW: I think the growth in the size of cases just makes an efficient e-discovery process that much more important. I've worked on enormous-sized cases where discovery takes several years because of the terabytes of data exchanged. If the process is run efficiently and appropriately, things can move at a much more palatable pace.
