MUST SEE at LegalTech NY -- Integreon's Super Session

You won't want to miss Integreon's LegalTech Super Session taking place Wednesday, January 30th in Concourse G. Integreon's ESI experts and a great line-up of guest panelists are set to address some of the hottest topics in the legal field, including technology-assisted review, legal process outsourcing, and the discovery implications of the Jackson Reforms going into effect in April 2013.

1:00-2:15pm EST

Technology-Assisted Review: Panel Discussion and Q&A

Many at LegalTech have heard about “predictive coding,” but confusion remains over what it really does and how can it be used defensibly. Is it just a technology? What about workflow and quality control? This session will cover what you need to know, how it works, pros and cons, and much more including:

  • Evolution of document review – linear to predictive coding
  • Overview of predictive coding
  • Relevant case law
  • Panelist Q&A

Moderator: Caragh Landry, Vice President, Integreon

Panelists: Jonathan Sablone, Partner, Nixon Peabody LLP; Robin E. Stewart, Of Counsel, Lathrop & Gage LLP; Juliet Hanna, Vice President of Legal Services, Integreon

2:30-3:30pm EST

Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO): Ethical, Practical and Legislative Considerations (ethics credit eligible)

With the maturation of the LPO industry, legal services are now being outsourced en-masse to LPO providers located both onshore in the U.S. and offshore in countries such as India and the Philippines. The outsourcing of legal work by a law firm or legal department to an LPO provider raises specific issues pertaining to the outsourcing lawyer’s ethical obligations to his or her client. Law firms and legal departments must ensure that they are in compliance with the relevant ethical rules. This presentation will help attendees to:

  • Avoid the unauthorized practice of law and comply with the duty to supervise
  • Ensure competent client representation when outsourcing legal work
  • Comply with appropriate legislation impacting the ability to outsource legal work (including Export Control Regulations and EU Data Protection)
  • Keep up to date with developments from relevant regulatory and professional bodies

Instructor: Mark Ross, Vice President of LPO, Integreon

3:45-4:45pm EST

Jackson Reforms: The UK’s New Standard for Transparency and Proportionality of Discovery

With the implementation of the UK’s Jackson Reforms in April 2013, proportionality and cost transparency move to center stage. Litigants must now manage the e-discovery and disclosure process like never before, including proactive budgeting and cost reporting, discussion of sources, scope and proposed methods, and other requirements. This session will cover what to expect and how organizations operating or doing business in the UK can best prepare. Discussion will cover:

  • An Overview of the Rules, esp. Civil Procedure Rule 31.5 and e-Disclosure Practice Direction 31B
  • How to Prepare: Perspectives from Integreon and kCura
  • UK Impact: Relevance and Opportunity
  • US Impact: Looking ahead at Proposed FRCP Changes

Moderator: Juliet Hanna, Vice President of Legal Services, Integreon
