In today’s global business environment, it’s common for U.S. legal matters to involve documents and data stored around the world. But in many instances, laws and regulations of foreign jurisdictions place restrictions on the permissible use and cross-border movement of that information. Though the European Union’s GDPR has gotten the lion’s share of attention lately, other countries also have data privacy and transfer rules that may conflict with American legal obligations. This session will delve into these international data protection laws, foreign blocking statutes, and choice-of-law issues and how they impact legal matters in the U.S.

This program was recorded as part of's Legalweek Conference on February 5th, 2020.
