In Legal Operations, Cooperation is Key

Posted 05/20/19 3:10 PM by Sarah Brown

We recently attended the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium (CLOC) in Las Vegas, which is always a great time to connect with colleagues and clients to discuss the evolving world of legal operations. As litigation and regulatory investigations grow increasingly international in scope, it’s becoming more important than ever for corporate legal departments, outside counsel, and legal service providers to work closely together like a finely-tuned machine to ensure successful outcomes and disciplined, efficient operations.

Cloud Security & eDiscovery: Separating Myth, Fact, and Marketing Fluff

Posted 04/23/19 8:00 AM by Sarah Brown

Cloud computing – or data storage in the cloud – is often touted as a cure-all for the woes of mounting ESI costs. Whether considering cloud computing for the home with storage backup services like Google Photos or iCloud, or considering cloud computing for a business process like eDiscovery, the same considerations apply: How do you know your data is really secure? How can you be sure you won’t be subject to a breach, and how can you ensure your provider doesn’t accidentally lose or delete your data – or do something illegal with it (intentionally or by mistake)?

 

When it comes to personal privacy, these questions are worth serious consideration. And when it comes to litigious – or potentially litigious – data involved in corporate litigation or regulatory investigations, these questions can make or break a law firm or corporation’s reputation and significantly affect profitability. A cloud provider’s security vulnerabilities could, if exploited, not only compromise the security of its clients, but also extend culpability to any of the provider’s clients who didn’t properly vet their vendors.

 

So what can lawyers who handle large amounts of litigious data do to ensure that their firms, corporations, and their ownreputations are secure when working with the many vendors who handle and store discovery data on behalf of legal clients?

The Race to the Top for eDiscovery Talent

Posted 03/12/19 11:16 AM by Sarah Brown

While many eDiscovery companies are consolidating – driving a “race to the bottom” in terms of price – Inventus CEO Paul Mankoo takes a different view. While cost savings are important – table stakes, even – the value that savvy legal practitioners are looking for today is more than just a low price.

 

To drive real value, you need experience and expertise – what he calls “the race to the top for talent.” While large consolidated companies may be driving efficiencies internally by eliminating redundancies, they are also shedding crucial talent. And to do truly stellar work in electronic discovery, you need a human element. Not just any human will do - you need critically thinking, deeply experienced experts who are relentlessly client-focused.

Data Protection is Changing - General Data Protection Regulation

Posted 08/5/15 6:14 PM by Sarah Brown

At present, each of the EU member states has its own Data Protection legislation. These laws protect the processing of personal data of individuals and the free movement of that data and were passed following the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. Since its adoption in 1995, the European Directive has been widely described as a gold standard for data protection.
