This Seminar will, through a series of case studies and examples, help you identify critical best practices and practical tips to effectively deal with eDiscovery obligations. These obligations typically arise in U.S. intellectual property, products liability and other complex litigation, as well as international anti-trust, cartel and other regulatory investigations. Effective cross-border eDiscovery is more than just translating the requests from U.S. and International counsel. It is about implementing successful strategies that allow you to navigate exacting legal requirements in a realistic and cost-effective way. By following these practices, you can not only streamline your discovery efforts and costs, but also avoid common pitfalls that have, on occasion, caused some of the largest companies to stumble, leading to damaging results. Several leading US eDiscovery precedents against Asian corporations will be highlighted and explored as to lessons learned.

The seminar will address:

  • Best-Practices in the collection of electronically stored information;
  • Effective processing and hosting of multi-lingual data;
  • Empowering your international document review, while significantly reducing your costs.

About CLE Credit

Please bring your state attorney ID number so that you can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
