Data Privacy Considerations in Conducting Cross Border Discovery
With the ever-increasing expansion of multinational corporations and globalized business transactions, it is exceedingly likely that attorneys will, at some point, have to conduct cross-border e-discovery on behalf of their clients. Such discovery can pose great challenges when the information sought is located outside of the U.S. and conflicting data privacy laws arise, often blocking discovery. Our panel will provide practical guidance for corporations and their counsel when faced with the difficulties involved in cross border discovery. The presentation will focus on data protection laws across Europe and Asia, the conflict that can arise when personal data is sought in U.S. discovery from countries with data protection laws and how to reasonably manage client risk. (Jointly sponsored by Women in eDiscovery, the IAPP, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, and Liquid Litigation).
