- Compliance in a Remote Working Environment
- Information Governance and E-Discovery
- Legal frameworks governing Privacy and Data Protection
A one-day conference
Live Virtual Event
Date: 29th April 2021
The disclosure of electronic documents has become an increasingly important feature of litigation. The sheer volume of electronic documents may present huge logistical and legal challenges. However, there are significant difficulties with e-discovery that can be embarrassing, time consuming and expensive. To protect their position and discharge their obligations to the Court, Solicitors and their clients need to adopt a carefully planned and practical approach to the issue of e-discovery, designed to balance the need for appropriate disclosure with the need to avoid disproportionate effort and expense. This conference will discuss the data protection implications, what data can be subject to e-discovery, the remote working challenges, the standards, guides and obligations for client-solicitor relationship and so much more.
CMG have gathered an expert panel of speakers who will explain the key elements of the e-discovery process that you need to ensure you are up to speed on to implement into future cases, plus what’s coming down the tracks that might be useful for your organisation going forward.
The E-Discovery Conference is a unique live virtual event from our own custom-built CMG Studios. Initial feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with attendees praising the additional interactive elements, as well as increased Q&A opportunities throughout the day, giving you more opportunity to gain real practical insights on the key issues that are important to you.
This conference will be of interest to legal departments, solicitors, barristers, insurance companies, government bodies, those involved with the collection of data and freedom of information requests, forensic investigators, forensic accountants to name a few.
