With electronic information driving discovery, the agreement the parties reach on how to handle ESI should be the guiding force for discovery on a matter. This panel will explore how to identify the case specific issues to be included in the ESI Protocol, issues to consider on form of production, types of ESI to be included and accommodated, privilege and inadvertent production protections and third party discovery. We’ll also address how to use the agreement throughout the matter to educate the court on issues, reduce disputes and provide a clear framework for discovery that all parties can follow. The result is a more efficient discovery process that reduces costs and distractions and allows counsel to focus on the merits of the case.

Blockchain technologies provide the opportunity to transform major industries as well as the the practice of law.  We’ve already seen tremendous change across a wide variety of industries including healthcare, retail, finance, agriculture, phramaeudical and entertainment.  We are now seeing how blockchain can transform the legal practice – in litigation, social justice and in many other areas.  Both US regulators as well as lawmakers across the world are grappling with how to address the quick spread of this emerging technology.  Lawyers are trying to figure out how to apply old law to a new medium.  Hear from blockchain experts about how this nascent technology will change the world as you know it.

Track 1

The reasonable anticipation or filing of a litigation case is only one event that can trigger a need for eDiscovery. These days, eDiscovery also plays an important part in conducting investigations to meet compliance, due diligence or regulatory enforcement requirements. In this session, the panelists will share experiences and provide examples of the use of eDiscovery technology and best practices to meet investigative objectives. 

1:45PM - 2:45PM
Track 2

Corporate counsel and law firms are under significant pressure to deliver services more cost-effectively and efficiently. The alignment of the legal services value chain is very important to achieve success. Process, technology and business model innovation changes need to evolve to meet the needs of all the parties that consume and deliver these services. How do we identify, evaluate, implement and measure internal and external improvements? In this session you will learn from expert practitioners from corporations, law firms and 3rd party vendors on what they currently do and what kind of process, technology or business model improvements will help going forward.

3:00PM - 4:00PM
Track 1

The practice of law is a rich tapestry woven from argument, stories, and the presentation of evidence. eDiscovery, however, is often considered to be part of the “nuts and bolts” of a matter – a means to an end, where practitioners can get lost in a loop of preserve-collect-process-repeat.  But what if there was a way to use one to support the other?

This talk is designed to flush out the best ways to make strategic data decisions at the outset of a matter to allow you to better utilize that data during the investigation, planning, and argument stages of your case.  While poor eDiscovery planning can lead to expensive and distracting disputes, refined Strategy and Advocacy when dealing with large volumes of data can lead to not only efficiency and expediency, but more important - victory.

4:15PM - 5:15PM
Track 1

This discussion will get you thinking about your perception of the discovery phase in litigation and challenge you to think of it not as a burden, but rather as an opportunity to align discovery as part of an overall winning strategy.  Explore tactics that leverage technology to drive the narrative and pace of the matter, while at the same time minimizing discovery risk and cost in the process.  Panelists will discuss how the rules of civil procedure, perceptions of “proportionality” in discovery, and technology have all aligned to allow a “new” approach to discovery. 

4:15PM - 5:15PM
Track 2

Gone are the days when companies could pass the headaches of cyber security to the IT department.  It is everyone’s problem now.  It is no longer just an IT problem.  It has become a business issue effecting the entire organization.  Join our panelists for a conversation that takes a realistic approach to protecting your data, both proactive and reactive, debunking many common myths along the way.
