At Legaltech on February 1, 2017, in New York City, Shook, Hardy & Bacon Partner Patrick Oot will moderate the keynote panel on amendments to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Of Counsel Daniel Lim will co-present a session on "Global Investigations and Multilingual Data – How to Manage the Risks Presented by Multilingual Datasets."
Titled “The Effects of the December 2015 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) from 3 Perspectives (Judges, Defense & Plaintiff),” the keynote panel will cover how those amendments have affected e-discovery from the varying perspectives of the different parties involved in this type of litigation. In a recent interview with Legaltech News, Oot noted that with the amendments, “there’s significant problems, and I think having perspectives from each one of the practitioners is going to be helpful to really move the dialogue around.”
Oot will be joined by The Hon. Andrew J. Peck, a U.S. Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of New York; The Hon. Xavier Rodriguez, a U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Texas; The Hon. Elizabeth D. Laporte, a U.S. District Court Judge for the Northern District of California; Ariana Tadler, Partner at Milberg LLP; and Paul Weiner, National eDiscovery Counsel and Shareholder at Littler Mendelson P.C.
Moderated by Consillo Vice President of Document Review Services Ben Rusch, Lim's session will "illustrate the challenges of searching multilingual data and explain workflow choices for the review of multilingual documents." He will present alongside General Electric Company Executive Counsel-Discovery Farrah Pepper; Kramer Levin Special Counsel Arielle Katz; Divergent Translations Partner Mark Jjerpe; and Norton Rule Fulbright Partner Andrea D'Ambra.
