Forensic Investigation of Electronic Data
Moderator: M. James Daley
Panelists: David Kemp, Miguel Pereira, Christian Zeunert
The hottest issue in litigation today is the discovery of electronically stored information (ESI). Whether a company relies on vendors to perform the various steps in this process or employs an in-house e-discovery team, it is critical that all in-house counsel be familiar with the forensic investigation of electronic data. Without this critical knowledge, lawyers will not know which questions to ask. Lawyers are aware that a key question is always "Do you know what you don't know?" This session will help inside and outside counsel answer that critical query in the affirmative.
The Relationship Between the General Counsel, the C-Suite, and the Board
Panelists: James Bellerjeau, Cliff Hudson, Anastasia P. Kelly, Julian Nebreda, Will Lawes
The role of the chief legal officer at companies has been evolving for year, but particularly during the past decade.As more and more laws and regulations are enacted, as the compliance responsibilities increase exponentially, as more and more data moves to the cloud, and as businesses are under increasing pressure to perform smarter and faster, the relationship between the legal department and its many constituents – the CEP, the CFO, the CCO and the Board of Directors – has changed. During this session, participants who are on different sides of this equation will share best practices employed by today's corporate legal departments.
