Richard Wilson, Director of Epiq a AI-powered technology that enables the legal industry and corporations to take on complex tasks with efficiency, clarity and confidence.
Richard and Alex Jensen begin their conversation discussing Richard’s early career and the trail that led him in 2004 to work in an IP law office in Seoul. From there he worked as both an inhouse counsel at Hyundai Heavy, and then as a Senior Foreign Legal Advisor, before joining Epiq in 2021.
Richard and Alex also delve into the New Zealand mystique in Korea. For some reason, Kiwi’s appear to be over represented and according to other antipodeans a little over-appreciated by their Korean hosts.
Currently working for Epiq, Richard discusses the increasingly complicated task legal firms and large corporates find when facing cybersecurity literally millions of documents in a legal proceeding. As Richards says, “It’s all about transforming the way that legal services are delivered. Much of legal work, is largely routine requires legal skill, but now, it can be done through an AI-powered solution. That is the main thrust of what Epic is about.
