As a new development in Hong Kong High Court procedure, the Hong Kong Judiciary has announced a pilot scheme for discovery and provision of electronically stored documents in cases in the Commercial List of the Court of First Instance, which will come into force on September 1, 2014. The pilot scheme is intended to apply to all actions commenced in, or transferred into, the Commercial List on or after September 1, 2014 and which are of a certain size in terms of the amount of claim and the number of documents to be searched for the purposes of discovery. Our client memorandum looks into and discusses the practical implications of the pilot scheme.
