As part of the opening keynote presentation for LegalWeek’s yearly conference, former deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein sat down for a “fireside chat” to talk a little bit about the biggest threat to U.S. democracy, political and media chaos, and his return to the legal industry as a private citizen for the first time in his career. While that last part may be a little at-odds with the rather dramatic and fear-based questions regarding democracy and politics writ large, Rosenstein did touch on loose data practices that can lead to compromised outcomes—in...

Note to in-house legal teams: The federal judiciary wants to see attorneys work together earlier during e-discovery disputes—and they aren’t afraid to take action for intentional misconduct, either—according to the 6th Annual Judges Survey.

That said, the international effort to empower individuals and encourage businesses to respect privacy and safeguard data is an honorable one. But for many companies, these laws can create massive headaches. According to a Gartner study from last year, the... Read More
