Please join us for our Speaker Series Event at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in New York. This session’s topic is “GDPR For eDiscovery Professionals”.
This presentation will cover:
On May 25, 2018, the EU will implement the General Data Protection Regulation. This broadly applied and sweeping regulation will have immediate impact on the US legal landscape. This sea change in data protection law is the most extensive in 20 years and applies inside and outside the EU. The GDPR will be felt by any organization which has an EU footprint or handles personal data of EU residents. Businesses are expected to implement new processes and procedures for handling data as well as ensuring the security and portability of it as well. Extensive fines and administrative remedies await those who do not comply.
Topics covered include:
- A brief history of the competing data privacy regimes – and recent revelations which make this more important than ever;
- The scope of the GDPR as well as its extraterritorial reach; and
- Practice tips for US legal practitioners on how to proceed with data which pertains to EU residents.

It seems like we hear more often than not about courts punishing parties with ludicrous e-discovery sanctions. Hate to break it to you, but this trend is not slowing down any time soon! This presentation will focus on recent egregious e-discovery missteps where companies have been imposed sanctions of up to $3 million or have even gotten their case completely dismissed for non-compliance. In addition to hearing about these absurd cases, this presentation will offer guidance on how to prevent monetary and preclusion sanctions during litigation.
This presentation will educate you how to:
- Noteworthy e-discovery cases and their pitfalls that led to sanctions
- How to properly comply with e-discovery requests to avoid such sanctions
- Trends in e-discovery sanction cases
- Avoiding common e-discovery mistakes
- Learning how to communicate and negotiate with the other side during the exchange of e-discovery
