Inside Counsel and Legaltech News | November.23.2016

Orrick's Jeffrey McKenna co-authored an article for Inside Counsel and Legaltech News entitled "The General Data Protection Regulation’s Key Implications for E-Discovery." The article discusses the European Union's new data privacy regulation, which goes into effect in 2018, and its impact on e-discovery. Jeffrey notes that "in the short term, it is unclear as to how much certainty will be brought to this lingering debate of “who prevails”— e-discovery versus data privacy. However, we do envision a handful of key implications and issues to consider with respect to the GDPR and the e-discovery process."
