Cross-Border eDiscovery is a hot topic this year. Globalization of businesses and mass mergers and acquisitions has caused an increase in the need for an understanding of how eDiscovery should be handled in other countries. All over the world, courts and local governments have instituted new rules for how parties will engage in discovery related to digital evidence. These new rules have been causing issues between the attorneys required by the US discovery rules to discover digital evidence for their cases and the various governments outside the US and across the world.
While the law in the United States makes it clear that parties to a litigation must preserve documents and electronically stored information, laws in other countries make it equally clear that preserving or collecting that data may violate their data protection laws. In this seminar, you will learn the updates in the local discovery and privacy rules of the top trade partners of the U.S. so that you will be able to handle overseas eDiscovery requirements with greater ease and more knowledge.
