Head of Catalyst’s Korea Office Publishes Book on E-Discovery for Businesses

l9788994567266The head of Catalyst’s South Korea office, Youngsoo Park, is the coauthor with Jeongho Yoo of a just-published Korean-language book about e-discovery for business leaders. The book, What Every Business Person Should Know about eDiscovery, provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of e-discovery.

The book is only the second ever about e-discovery published in Korea and the first in which hands-on professionals explore the topic in depth. The book covers the history and basics of e-discovery and then examines key topics and legal issues in e-discovery practice, both in the United States and Korea. It also explains several of the leading technology platforms for e-discovery, including Catalyst Insight. The book was published earlier this month in Seoul by InfoTheBooks.com.

Park, who is considered one of the leading e-discovery experts in Korea, joined Catalyst in 2013, when the company opened its first office in Seoul. He oversees the office and the expansion of Catalyst’s Asia-Pacific operations into South Korea.


Youngsoo Park presents Catalyst CEO John Tredennick with a copy of his new book during a meeting this week in Seoul.

His co-author, Jeongho Yoo, is the head of e-discovery, digital forensics and information security for a major corporation in Korea. He has served as an instructor in digital forensics for the Korea Police Investigation Agency, the Cyber Terror Response Center and the Korea Customs Service.

The book includes chapters on e-discovery in the U.S.  and the evolution of e-discovery practice under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. It also discusses e-discovery in Korea, including an overview of applicable Korea laws and a discussion of the country’s corporate culture and environment.

Other sections of the book cover digital forensics, the stages of e-discovery under the EDRM, and the preparation and implementation of an e-discovery strategy.
