Global Investigations, Compliance & Technology
11:30PM - 12:20PM
Data is everywhere. This panel will discuss data in the context of an investigation and government enforcement. As data appears in a multitude of formats from chat data to ephemeral messaging applications to even paper documents, one thing is clear: The volume of data regularly created in the daily course of business is both a gold mine and a liability. What technologies are available to evaluate how an organization can govern and classify these enormous volumes of electronic information. Are there cultural differences that differentiates how organizations create and store data vis a vis a government investigation. This panel will view this question from the perspective of in house counsel, outside expert law firm, a former prosecutor and a data analytics firm.

Protecting Japanese Corporate Communications: US Litigation, E-Discovery & Foreign Language Risks
4:20PM - 5:10PM
Japanese companies will be involved in litigation that will require the production of large volumes of their internal communications. This means potentially sensitive information such as trade secrets, emails between executives, and any other communication relevant to the litigation or investigation that is not deemed privilege. While legal and technology advocates discuss the sexiness of AI and Analytics, no matter how you slice or dice it, bilingual experts will steward this delicate process. There are serious risks here. This panel will discuss how to appropriately leverage bilingual experts during large-scale investigations involving multiple languages and complex fact patterns. Some of the questions we will unpack will be: How has machine translation technology advanced within the context of legal? The difference between Bilingual Attorney teams managed by E-Discovery professionals and Translation work streams. What are the risks and rewards of neural network based machine translation systems? How to optimize lower-cost resources and non-attorney linguists on global investigations where costs and scarcity of linguist resources are limited? Our expert panelists will offer their insight into common problems they have faced and how to protect against inaccuracies when dealing with multi-lingual content. This will be a hands-on panel that will provide best practices from those that regularly deal with foreign language data sets.
Cross-Border Litigation Challenges, Discovery, and Big Data
5:20PM - 6:10PM
Multi-national companies face litigation challenges throughout the world, often including discovery demands and requests for data hosted, maintained, and shared by employees and servers across offices. Companies and their attorneys and advisors must understand the risks associated with responding to discovery demands, sharing data, and coordinating different categories of litigation, including patent and intellectual property, trade secrets, mass torts, class actions, and commercial arbitrations and disputes. The panel will address how to manage obstacles associated with demands for data stored in different countries with different privacy laws and treaties, GDPR enforcement issues, government restrictions, and preservation requirements, how to protect attorney-client privilege, and how to work with multiple business units to create efficient processes for collection and production. The panel will also discuss practical lessons regarding how to handle varying expectations within the company, coordinating resources, and developing efficient and effective litigation strategies.
