NY City Bar To Focus On International Discovery

Tuesday, September 1, 2009 - 01:00

Titled International Discovery: Practical Advice on How to Obtain Evidence, this program is scheduled for Wednesday, September 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the New York City Bar, 42 West 44th Street, NY City. The program will be chaired by Denise E. Backhouse of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP.

Under European data protection laws, evidence that resides overseas, even if critical to a case, may potentially not be handed over to a United States investigation. Moreover, the activity required to identify, preserve, examine, transfer and disclose data may violate European data privacy laws and blocking statutes. A prominent panel of attorneys will examine the nature and scope of the protected rights and discuss practical solutions for handling international discovery.
