Processing Facts in the EU: Revisiting and Analyzing the Google Spain, Weltimmo, and Facebook Cases

The Google Spain case caused a lot of turmoil among the privacy law specialists. Was it an abandonment of the one stop principle and back to the hegemony of the national authorities?

What About Insurance Coverage for Data Storage in the Pharmaceutical Industry?

The safe retention of data for reference or analysis belonging either to the patient or to the pharma company is an issue that continues to give rise to concern. Information relating to clinical trials, product formulas, manufacturing processes, drug pricing structure, and marketing plans are at risk from external cyber attack and internal employee theft. How are these concerns being addressed? What insurance coverage is available? Is it affordable and is it restrictive? Representatives from both sides of the debate will share their thoughts with you.

No More Safe Harbour: Cross-Border Discovery and Compliance with Data Protection Laws

What do you do when discovery of European data is sought in US proceedings? Given the vast differences amongst national privacy regimes, how will different state courts treat data acquired in contravention of local or foreign data laws? What should counsel do when they suspect such data exists or is being requested? In light of the fact the “Safe Harbour” arrangement has been overturned and the EU-US Privacy Shield is still in draft form, what rules now govern the transfer of information across borders? Moreover, what is the practical way to deal with these issues? This interactive session with our experienced panelists from the EU and US will address the available options for data storage and protection and their risks. We will also discuss what to do when requesting or being asked for foreign data and what internal data policies and protocols are appropriate to prevent your company from running afoul of EU and US privacy laws now and in the future.

Impact of Data Evolution on Discovery Before the Arbitral Tribunals in the Light of the IBA Guidelines on Party Representation

International arbitration prides itself on its relative flexibility when it comes to rules of evidence. Arguably, it has developed its own approach to fact-finding distinct from any single national law. This panel will examine how party representatives and arbitral tribunals can and should approach the task of presenting and dealing with evidence in light of new technologies, which bring ever-changing sources and types of evidence. Is a harmonised approach possible in light of the various potential obligations upon parties, their representatives, and the tribunal, in particular in relation to illegally obtained data?

Can I Lie About the Facts Before the Arbitral Tribunals in the Light of the IBA Guidelines on Party Representation?

International arbitral proceedings differ from state court proceedings in many aspects. Among the differences are the various origins and legal and cultural backgrounds of the counsels appearing in the same proceedings. The diversity of professional rules applicable to the respective counsels as to what they may and may not do can create an imbalance which is counter to the goal of levelling the playing field that arbitrators and parties seek to reach in the procedural aspects of arbitration. In 2013, the IBA released a very important tool for achieving this goal, namely the IBA Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration on which the panel will focus, in particular in relation to the duty not to make false submissions of fact to the arbitral tribunal.
