How to Protect and Enhance Your Clients and Customers when Dealing with the News Media

When a reporter calls you or your client, looking for comment on a trial or seeking expert analysis of a breaking story, you need to act quickly, yet carefully – not only to protect but also to enhance both your client's and your own interests.

  • Should you speak on or off the record?
  • Interrupt a meeting for a reporter's call?
  • Complain about errors in print?

In the fast-paced world of sound bites and quick quotations, dealing with the news media can be overwhelming and unnerving. It's natural to feel intimidated by a reporter's call, but if you understand how the news process works, you can better respond to the inquiries.

Evolving eDiscovery Workflows for the Future


The increasing volume and complexity of data involved in eDiscovery are making it harder for law firms and litigation support vendors to deliver timely, error-free services while still maintaining profitability. Legal service providers are increasingly facing pressure to complete larger volumes of work, faster – but achieving accurate, timely and defensible results requires a high level of technical skill and legal knowledge to prevent errors and rework. This session will examine two case studies of legal service providers that completed workflow and automation projects which resulted in lower costs of eDiscovery, reduced risk of errors, shared work across teams and offices; and made the output more defensible. The panel of ediscovery experts will examine the processes these firms went through, the benefits they achieved and the lessons they learned along the way.

Law Firm Security: Minding the Gaps


With public warnings from the FBI and increasing media coverage as a result, it should come as no surprise to listeners that cyber criminals have law firms squarely in their sights.  Frequently referred to as 'soft targets', firm network vulnerabilities expose their clients and the firms themselves to data theft, leakage, spoliation, and host of unseen dangers.  Our panel of experts will discuss what, specifically, the soft spots are and how firms can begin to repair themselves.

Worried About a Regulatory Inquiry? Be Prepared for the Feds


According to Fulbright’s recently published Litigation Trends Survey, over the past three years:

  • 37% of all companies surveyed reported an increase in external regulatory inquiries
  • More than one-third of respondents reported spending more time addressing regulatory investigative requests or regulatory enforcement proceedings
  • Highly regulated industries, such as healthcare, energy, and finance are especially vulnerable to these regulatory demands.

Regulatory inquiries whether from the DOJ the SEC or another federal agency require e-discovery workflows similar to civil litigation but are far more burdensome on your organization. Regulatory investigations are not governed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which means there is no “meet and confer,” there is no limit on the scope of discovery, and the timelines may be compressed. And of upmost concern for GCs is the risks of regulatory investigations are incredibly high.

Join our panel of in-house counsel and experienced e-discovery litigators as they examine how and why corporations need to be prepared for regulatory investigations. Topics to be discussed include:

  •   The importance of establishing company-wide policies for e-discovery and preservation that observes department and employee compliance
  •  Establishing a comprehensive knowledge of the data sources, custodians, storage locations, file types and data volumes of relevant ESI related to regulatory compliance
  •  Deploying e-discovery technology to quickly build the data map, enforce preservation obligations and provide both IT and legal team’s visibility into the entire discovery process.
