Mark Dingle

LitSavant was established by Mark Dingle in 2010.

Mark has been working in the litigation support industry for over 11 years. His past employment includes two top 20 law firms and one of the largest service providers. In these roles Mark has managed edisclosure projects on behalf of leading financial institutions and insurers as well as high profile energy and pharmaceutical companies.

Mark was a founding member of LiST and a member of the LiST group committees responsible for their proposed "Revised Disclosure Statement", "Data Exchange Protocol", "Draft Technology Questionnaire" and "Practice Direction for the use of IT in Civil Proceedings".

Mark is currently a member of the working party chaired by Senior Master Whitaker charged with drafting a practice direction governing the handling and disclosure of Electronically Stored Information (ESI). This draft Practice Direction was recently favourably referred to by Lord Justice Jackson in his Review of Civil Litigation Costs: Final Report.

ESI

Electronically Stored Information: this is an all inclusive term referring to conventional electronic documents (e.g. spreadsheets and word processing documents) and in addition the contents of databases, mobile phone messages, digital recordings (e.g. of voicemail) and transcripts of instant messages.  All of this material needs to be considered for disclosure.

Peruvian Guano
I am concerned above all to emphasise that the switch from Peruvian Guano discovery to CPR standard disclosure should be properly taken on board by litigants and their advisers.
