There are many legal hurdles that arise when conducting business internationally. Pursuing cross-border IP litigation for your client can often be challenging due to the discovery process, data privacy, and blocking statutes. Not only do legal restrictions on data movement pose an issue during IP litigation, logistics and linguistics play an important role too. The coordination of groups in various countries can be difficult as not all team members may speak the same native language thus complicating an already challenging process.

This seminar will provide strategies to reduce the risks and costs of cross border IP litigation while increasing the effectiveness of your e-discovery.
