    Online and physically in Zurich
    AI will revolutionize the legal community. New language models, such as Chat GPT, can not only find relevant documents, but also summarize the content and much more. But what if there is a bias? Will such software meet privacy concerns? We will discuss the challenges and opportunities.

Our Purpose

With a focus on Cross-border eDiscovery, privacy and internal investigation, we foster opportunities for networking and an exchange of ideas and best-practices among in-house counsel & internal specialists. ​
We are conducting quarterly deep-dive in-person workshops in small settings on prepared topics and create highly work products vetted by our members

About CeDIV

The association, formally SeDIV, was founded in May 2015 by UBS, Novartis, Holcim, Zurich Insurance and Swiss Re to foster the exchange of best practices and know-how on Cross-border eDiscovery, Privacy & Investigation topics.  As a rule, commercial organizations with a presence in Europe can become members, except for organizations that act as counsel, advisors, consultants, suppliers or contractors in the area of e-discovery or investigations.

The core value for our members are our half day in-person meetings to discuss prepared topics. With a small group and diverse membership, a deep-dive into complex topics and an exchange of ideas is possible. The workshops are conducted in Switzerland, other European cities and the U.S. about four times a year per location.


Since 2019 we create CeDIV work products. This are highly practical documents, tools or checklists vetted in working groups and our workshops to incorporate best practices. The topics are selected and prioritized by our member.

Confidentiality at CeDIV

The information exchanged among the members, including the discussions at the events, are confidential, may not be in any way used against the organization or cited (i.e. off-the-record and without prejudice) and are to be considered personal statements of the delegates of the member organization, not official statements.
