  • Law firms and corporations are increasingly confronted with irreconcilable priorities when addressing transnational litigations and investigations. Comprehensive U.S. discovery obligations often conflict with foreign data privacy and information security laws. The intersection of these contrasting legal regimes results in expensive motion practice, delays in discovery and potential breaches of foreign law. The E-Discovery Working Group of the NYC Bar Association recently published a report offering guidelines about how intelligent workflows and advances in technology can significantly mitigate these pain points. During this CLE session, members of that Working Group will share their expertise and advice, discussing how to design processes and leverage technology to remain compliant and secure while meeting the needs of the case.
