Speaker, The 12th Annual Gibbons E-Discovery Conference, "Global Discovery Privacy Rights = GDPR: How Europe's New Data Protection Rules Impact E-Discovery in the U.S. and Abroad," West Orange, NJ

On May 25, 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect, enforcing ways in which U.S. companies may lawfully process and transfer protected personal data. The GDPR impacts how certain data must be handled in litigation, including how data can be collected, stored, transferred, produced, and discarded. This discussion will address the GDPR’s relevance to e-discovery best practices and tensions that may arise between U.S. litigation practices and EU data protection rules.
