The seminar will include a broad discussion of cross-border e-discovery from a U.S. litigator's perspective. A discussion of the discovery obligations, both in Federal and Pennsylvania state courts will be contrasted with the obligations to maintain data privacy under the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR will take effect in May 2018 and is generating discussion on its extraterritorial effects and the implications it will have within the U.S.
While the GDPR is intended to create a more uniform approach to the processing, storage and transfer of personal identifiable information (PII), it will create obstacles within the discovery context that U.S. litigators need to proactively consider when dealing with cross-border discovery relating to the EU.
The seminar will address the EDRM (Enterprise Digital Rights Management) stages of e-discovery within this cross-border context, detailing the best practices in Early Case Assessment, preservation, collection, document review and production.
Recorded during a live webinar in September, 2017.
