Mr. Sidoti will be speaking on the topic, “Is This a Hold-up? Don’t Let a Poorly Implemented Legal Hold Rob You of Defensibility,” which will provide answers to questions such as:

    • What are the critical steps of implementing a legal hold?
    • What is your checklist for implementing a legal hold after determining the triggering event, what should be in a litigation hold letter?
    • What sources of ESI should you think about?
    • Are there automated processes to implement a legal hold?
  • When can you release a legal hold?

Mr. Sidoti will also be serving as a speaker on the panel,”Collecting ESI – Because ‘How’ Matters.” This panel will address key issues that counsel must address while collecting ESI and the risk associated with improper collection and self-collection. This practical session will also examine new technologies and trends for collection of ESI – including remote collection tools and collection of social media.

Mr. Nagel will be speaking on the topic, “Developments in Cross Border eDiscovery – Exploring the Intersection of Privacy, Data Sharing and Compelled Disclosure,” which will focus on the conflicts between conceptions of privacy and information disclosure within the field of cross-border disputes. The panelists will discuss the application of U.S. discovery rules to the continued expansion of international civil disputes, the U.S. government’s broad use of its powers to investigate conduct abroad, and foreign legislation enacted to protect individuals and multinational businesses.
