The conference agenda includes advanced sessions on: 

  • Using contemporary sources of data (CCTV, GPS, audio and video recordings, cell phone data, and social media) to direct a litigation strategy and present a compelling narrative at trial
  • Advocating for your client while managing conflicting multi-party discovery priorities in high-exposure and complex MDL, class, and collective actions
  • Developing strategies to mitigate the legal and privacy risks and costs of data migrations and integrations, and to defensibly disposition stale data
  • Adapting workflows built around “custodial” identification and negotiation as enterprises shift to collaborative platforms and apps
  • Frankly discussing, using a panel of anonymous avatars, how outside counsel, vendors, and experts can win – or lose – the trust of their business clients
  • Dissecting the ethical issues implicated by remote work, remote collections, and remote review engendered by the post-COVID remote workplace
