I am a supporter of Women in eDiscovery and glad to learn from Laura Kelly of Epiq Systems that the London branch is active. They have a meeting on 17 September at the offices of Fulbright & Jaworski, 85 Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 1AE.
Laura’s message says this:
The topic of the event is EU Data Protection law as it affects the obtaining of data from EU countries for investigations and litigation.
We have been fortunate enough to secure the attendance of some experienced and knowledgeable speakers in this field, including Ashley Winton, Partner and Chair of the White & Case Global Data Protection and Privacy Group to provide us with an overview of EU Data Protection laws and Florinda Baldridge, Global Director of Practice Support at Fulbright & Jaworski in Houston to discuss some of the practical pressures and solutions.
Our Agenda is:
5.00 p.m. Registration
5.15 p.m. Ashley Winton, White & Case – EU Data Protection update
5.40 p.m. Panel discussion including Ashley Winton, Florinda Baldridge and Emma Christie of Raposa Consulting (formerly with Shell)
6.15 p.m. Drinks & Nibbles – on the roof terrace if weather permits.
This is a good team. Ashley Winton spoke at the Ark Group Conference in London on the day I chaired it, and is one of those few people who can deliver heavy material with a light tone. Florinda Baldridge and I were co-panelists at a session at LegalTech in February led by Deborah Baron of Autonomy. Emma Christie is Ian Manning’s right hand at Raposa Consulting, as she was at FoxData before that.
I will not be there for obvious reasons. If you are an existing member of Women in eDiscovery contact Laura Kelly. Contact her also if you are not a member and would like to find out more about Women in eDiscovery.
