Many eDisclosure providers claim to be “international,” “global,” or “worldwide.” But many are US-founded, US-based, and at their core, US-centric. Given the unique litigation landscape within the United States, this is not unexpected – however an entirely US-centric approach to disclosure work can have detrimental effects on litigation projects conducted for clients in (or doing business in) the UK, Europe, or Asia.

If providers aren’t mindful, they can easily bring a skewed perspective to their work – favoring US-centric discovery workflows, US-centric language, and a US-centric cultural approach to client relationships.

FATF detailed which types of virtual asset (VA) activities (a virtual asset is a representation of currency, rather than currency itself) must be regulated and the minimum requirements it expects from regulators, which far surpasses current efforts in most countries. The guidance can be used as an aid to implement existing FATF recommendations for other financial instruments.
