Session 1: Handling Legal Information Defensibly in the Global Economy

Wednesday, February 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Speaker: Farhat Jabeen
Location: Americas 1 Theater

In today’s global business environment, it’s common for U.S. legal matters to involve documents and data stored around the world. But in many instances, laws and regulations of foreign jurisdictions place restrictions on the permissible use and cross-border movement of that information. Though the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation has gotten the lion’s share of attention lately, other countries also have data privacy and transfer rules that may conflict with American legal obligations.

This session will delve into these international data protection laws, foreign blocking statutes, and choice-of-law issues and how they impact legal matters in the U.S. Our panel of experts will discuss how to develop individualized strategies to reduce risk when managing cross-border matters, from best practices in partnering with legal teams abroad, to tried-and-true information management workflows, to cutting edge analytics tools that can help efficiently handle large volumes of digital data.

Session 2: Leveraging Technology for Information Governance and Data Privacy

Wednesday, February 5, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Speaker: Matthew Miller
Location: Americas 1 Theater

It’s now routine for organizations to turn to technology to solve eDiscovery problems, but only recently have they started to consider how data analytics and other tools can improve their information governance and data privacy initiatives.

Our panel of experts, who lead eDiscovery and information governance teams at global financial services and bio-tech pharma organizations, will share real-life practical examples exploring how and where their teams leverage technology across the data governance lifecycle. The discussion will focus on new applications of legal technology tools for identifying sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information, banking information, and healthcare records, and redacting, anonymizing or otherwise remediating that information. The panel will also suggest ways that these tools can classify data, build data maps, manage content and contracts, and lower data storage costs to combat the challenges inherent with exponential data growth. And finally, the panel will offer some practical suggestions for assessing when implementing technology can be the right solution for your organization’s unique information governance challenges.

Session 3: Using Analytics to Find the Signal in the Noise for Internal Investigations

Wednesday, February 5, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Speaker: Allison Myers
Location: Americas 1 Theater

So much information and so many questions: Today’s organizations need technology that can help them quickly sift through their data to find the answers to pressing internal issues.

This session will use case studies to illustrate how various analytics can identify patterns in data, uncover hidden relationships between people and events, translate coded language, and organize disparate information into logical groups and concepts—helping investigators find the signal in the noise. The panel will discuss how to match the right tools and techniques to the particular investigation at hand and will also address proactive uses of analytics to develop case strategies, identify relevant data trends, focus on important documents, and identity techniques to ward off impending problems.

CLE Course: From Azure to Zoimas: Where to Find Relevant Information—And How to Collect It

Tuesday, February 4, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Wednesday, February 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Thursday, February 6, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Speakers: Robert Fried, David Grant and Warren Kruse
Location: Booth 2106

Whether it’s cloud storage, “smart” devices in the home, fitness wearables, social media, chat applications, or even blockchain, there are too many data streams for counsel to singlehandedly manage. Yet they are ethically obligated to stay on top of these emerging data sources and develop effective strategies for dealing with the information that their clients generate.

This program will explain the difficulties associated with the identification of potentially relevant information from these emerging sources, as well as the challenges of defensibly collecting data from them. Robert, David and Warren will also suggest practical advice for defensible, cost-effective workflows for identification, preservation, and collection.

At Legalweek, Consilio will be located at exhibitor booth 2106. If you are interested in speaking with Farhat Jabeen, Matthew Miller, Allison Myers, Robert Fried, David Grant, Warren Kruse or any other of Consilio’s on-site experts, please contact:
