November’s topic “Ethics in eDiscovery, a View From all Parties” will be hosted by Shearman & Sterling LLP and sponsored by Compliance Discovery Solutions.
Both mainstream and industry news these days is chock full of stories about data breaches, privilege goof-ups, ransomware attacks, spoliation and general incompetence in technology. If you don’t want to be the next headline on LegalTech News, you should come to our November meeting! We’ll be tackling these issues head-on with an exciting panel discussion on Ethics in eDiscovery with corporate, law firm and service provider points of view. They’ll discuss general ethical concerns, confidentiality and competency requirements, recent cases and blunders and how law firms, corporations and eDiscovery partners can work together to prevent the worst-case scenario.
Our distinguished speakers include:
Senior Associate, Michelman & Robinson, LLP
Assistant General Counsel, Och-Ziff Management Group LLC
Chief Operating Officer, Compliance Discovery Solutions
Maria Maccarone (moderator)
Vice President, Business Development, Compliance Discovery Solutions

Last year, we adopted a beautiful family, purchased toys, clothes and other necessities and came together to wrap them with holiday cheer at our December meeting. Our 2016 family could not have been happier to see us arriving at their home in early December with a car full of presents and we hope to bring the same joy to our 2017 family.
For 2017, we have a family of 4:
Mom, Dad, 8-year-old Tania and 3-year-old Abimael
Please see the attached gift guide detailing the needs for the family.
We also invite you to bring a guest as this is the perfect opportunity to introduce them to our chapter activities.
Please stay tuned for our Speaker Announcement Email and Evite.
