EU Data Protection and Privacy - Impact on Cross-Border E-Discovery



Digital Evidence and Forensic investigations



Law firms sans frontieres

Meeting the challenge of European law firm IT infrastructures: Do European firms have a different business culture to US & UK firms? How much local autonomy can global law firms allow national offices? What are the infrastructure issues and priorities associated with multinational multi-regulatory/jursidictional practices? Is Cloud technologys the obvious solution - or the source of more problems?

10.45 -11.30

Pan-European Litigation Support - A Practical Approach


Accelerating investigations using e-discovery techniques


Meet generation x, y & z

How will law firms operate in the 21st century? Firms are faced by new generations of lawyers, clients & technologies. Will desktop PCs & traditional offices give way to iPads and mobile working? And will lawyer/client communications shift towards social media platforms? Are the career expectations and working patterns of next generation lawyers radically different?

11.30 - 12.00


12.00 - 13.00


What is the rest of the world doing about e-discovery?



Digital Investigations and Prosecutions - Local and International Perspectives


The 21st century document factory

Document production remains at the core of all law firms' working practices but how to address the productivity gap between the first wordprocessed draft and the final archiving on the document management system? Does the solution lie in native Microsoft Word or third-party solutions? How much genuine demand is there for collaborative working? And how will lawyers work - do their own typing or use voice technology?

13.00 - 14.00


14.00 - 15.00


Early Case/ Data Assessment, Predictive Coding and Advanced Search Technologies


ESI, Bribery, & Corruption - A Governance, Risk, and Compliance Nightmare




Faster, cheaper, sexier

How can law firms meet the challenge of competitive change, including downward pressures on fees and the emergence of alternative legal service providers, including outsourcing? Can the traditional law firm work faster and cheaper or is the old business model broken? Will technology, including greater automation and commoditisation, become the norm or is the 'drift to the left' a myth and the future will give way to more diverse models for law firms?

15.00 - 16.00



How companies can take control of e-discovery costs and timetables


Forensic Challenges in Dealing with Terabytes of Data


Winning clients & keeping them

How to address marketing and business development at both a local and international level. Why are law firms still so bad at cross selling? How can law firms retain new business and prevent 'churn'? How can firms address branding at a local, national and multinational level. Does technology provide a solution or a distraction? Is social media they way to engage to tomorrow's clients?

16.00 - 16.30


16.30 - 17.30


Cloud, Social Media, and other Emerging Technologies


ESI and Forensics in Alternative Dispute Resolution

There will be a discussion about the UNCITRAL ODR Working Group's preparation on ODR rules for low value, high volume e-commerce disputes.
