International eDiscovery: Legal Rules and Practicalities of Cross-Border eDiscovery

21st century discovery not only cuts a broad swath as to electronically stored information (ESI) but it often entails ESI located all over the world. The USA’s unique approach to litigation discovery often clashes with privacy protections provided to individuals residing in other countries around the globe. It may even be illegal for a U.S. company to collect data from some of its own overseas employees.

You will learn the fundamentals of international legal principles that generate inherent conflicts with U.S. civil procedure statutes and rules and recent legal developments in the U.S. and overseas re: the intersection of e-discovery and data-privacy rules of law. You will benefit from this OnDemand Webinar by learning practical tips for lawyers and executives alike as to proactive and reactive steps to implement a defensible approach and suggested strategies for seeking and objecting to discovery of ESI located outside the Unites States.
