As data volume and variances continue to expand, the litigation and eDiscovery technology market has never been more crowded or complex to navigate. Selecting the eDiscovery tools that best work for your organization is a complex task that requires an evaluation and implementation framework that can be both costly and risky to design. In this roundtable discussion we will discuss the following:  

  • Critical factors and trends related to emerging eDiscovery data types and how those trends factor into selecting eDiscovery technology
  • How to spot technologies that are emerging as well as how to create a framework to evaluate these technologies
  • Examples and benefits of holistic approaches to solving eDiscovery challenges

This session is geared towards smaller and medium-sized law firms who want to learn more about the E-discovery process. Here are many of the questions we will answer:

  • Why do large law firms ask for strange production formats like DAT, OPT and metadata files with single page tiffs?
  • Is there an advantage to receiving data in such a format?
  • When should parties use search terms to respond to document requests and are there other ways to locate responsive data?
  • How can I make sure that my E-discovery process is defensible and that I won't get sanctioned?
  • Is there an ideal way to produce text messages in litigation?
  • How do I make sure the other side is giving me all the documents that are responsive to my document requests?
  • When should my client hire an expert to forensically image computers and phones and when can they avoid the costs?
  • What can I do to prepare for a meet and confer with opposing counsel regarding identification, collection, and preservation of data for litigation?
  • How should I respond to requests for production that aren't precise?

As companies look to prevent more losses due to the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus, it's imperative that in-house legal professionals think of new innovative techniques to minimize legal spend with legal technology.

Learn from three in-house legal leaders on how they optimized these areas and reduced legal spend by...

Within the next few years, we will find ourselves on the cusp of a revolution in the practice of law led by the adoption of artificial intelligence. Much like email changed the way we do business every day, AI will become ubiquitous – an indispensable assistant to practically every lawyer. Those that do will ultimately find themselves freed up to do the two things there always seems to be too little time for thinking and advising.

Together we’ll explore the practical implications and applications of AI and how the #MeToo algorithm detects harassment, how concept search helps speed up eDiscovery work and a host of other practical implications of AI in Early Data Assessment.

Survey says...collaborative team fun! Complete with authentic classic visuals, sound effects and intro music – this is a virtual team building ‘retro’ game show like no other!


In Teambonders “Virtual Feud”, the emphasis is not to put any individual members of the “Family” on the spot – as this is a full team effort. Using ‘breakout rooms’, Families have a set amount of time to collaborate and decide, as a group, as to what their top 2 answers to each survey question will be.


Once back in the main “Game Zone”, the Host engages with the group for sample responses, before the actual top answers are revealed to all. Families that matched the board correctly bank the associated cumulative points throughout the game.


As this is an all-inclusive activity (and to ensure that there’s “something for everyone”), Survey questions are based on general knowledge subjects, pop culture references and custom corporate-centric topics (if so desired). The outcome is an entertaining and engaging corporate event to be enjoyed by all!

Day 3 — Thursday, February 4, 2021

Governor Christie’s keynote session will be closing out the February series on Thursday, February 4th at 9:30 AM EST.

The burdens on law firms and corporate legal departments from downward cost pressure, rising caseloads and disruptive competitors is driving a surge in the demand for legal tech. Some of these risks can be mitigated through better optimization of the balance between human effort and machine automation.

This session will address “Modernizing Legal Practices” and will draw on our experience from working with law firms and GCs globally to help you navigate the common risks and challenges that our clients are facing as they transform. We will reference technologies like AI-driven neural machine translation (NMT) and eDiscovery platforms, draw upon automating translation to empower the transformation of content into documentary evidence, together with secure management of translation data, ensuring the enhancement of quality and service and substantiating how innovation can be an enabler for gains in efficiency and productivity across international firms.

Day 1 — Tuesday, March 16, 2021

8:30 AM - 9:00 AM | Legalweek(year) Platform Opens

As one of America’s foremost reporters on the Supreme Court, Nina Totenberg breaks down the latest Court developments into manageable pieces in order to discuss their impact on your industry. With an insider’s knowledge, she leads audiences through an animated discussion of the current issues affecting our nation today, answers questions concerning the most pressing issues in Washington, and offers predictions for what’s to come.

Keynote Speaker: Nina Totenberg, Legal Correspondant - NPR

Savvy general counsels recognize that better data helps the law department bring more value to their organizations. In the quest for smarter data, legal leaders may overlook a fundamental business tool - their contracts. Modern contracting is no longer a “nice to have” for legal leadership looking to influence company strategy.

Join DocuSign and our panel experts to learn how general counsels can tap into data resources that were previously impossible to access. What’s in those agreements, as well as the process used to create, negotiate and sign contracts are now sources of valuable information that can help general counsels drive better decisions for their teams and the business.

In this webinar, participants will learn:

  • How data from digital contracts leads to better team management
  • How workflow and negotiation data helps funnel agreements toward self-service and away from bespoke legal review
  • How analysis of contract data leads to richer information for organization-wide decisions

With increasing remote work, expanding data volumes, and growing regulatory needs, your teams are asked to do more with less even as the scope and complexity of requirements increase with remote work and rapid cloud adoption.

Adapt and evolve for what’s ahead with a suite of integrated solutions designed to efficiently manage risk as data volumes grow, regulations evolve, and users adopt the latest collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams. Learn how Microsoft 365 helps protect content at scale using ML models without compromising your eDiscovery process. Manage insider risks that impact corporate compliance, and seamlessly handing investigations off to eDiscovery teams. Finally, with growing legal, regulatory and internal obligations learn how Microsoft 365 in-place eDiscovery tools are designed to find responsive information more efficiently while also helping your organization to minimize the risk and cost of exposing sensitive information outside the Microsoft 365 security and compliance boundary.

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, enterprises were forced to transform virtually overnight from office-based work modes to work-from-home. How can you manage this spike in enterprise compliance risk? By capturing, preserving, analyzing, and monitoring communications at scale, with fast search, and a UX that adapts to a variety of use cases.

In this session, get a firsthand view of the new compliance, governance, and archiving challenges posed by today’s work-from-home culture, including: 

  • Why pre-COVID archiving and monitoring strategies no longer suffice
  • How corporate leaders are rethinking their compliance and risk-management strategies
  • What technology innovations organizations can leverage to stay on top of corporate governance

New communication channels and content types proliferate within today’s businesses. Employees are communicating across collaboration apps, file sharing tools, social media, and more – and they’re doing so with text, video, images, and an ever-expanding field of media types. In this new paradigm, the old ways of capturing, managing, and reviewing electronic communications content are no longer sufficient for efficient discovery, particularly in highly litigious industries. Discovery and review can quickly get complex and expensive if new media types aren’t adequately handled, attribution isn’t consistent, or context isn’t preserved.

In this session, join a panel of experts to learn how current and future communication usage impact e-discovery practices and processes, how to assess these changes at each phase of e-Discovery, and which emerging technologies can help you ensure your E-Discovery remains effective in the new paradigm of communications
