Dual Party Engagements = Dual Party Benefits, by Jason Hale was published in the August edition of Bar Briefs. This article exams the traditional approach where each party may hire their own expert to conduct work on their behalf. Each expert will typically perform a forensic collection, conduct analysis, and relay the results to the respective party. This approach works, but often means duplicative work, delays, and increased costs. Dual party engagements offer a fresh alternative to mitigate or eliminate some of the downsides of the traditional approach.

Presented

“What Keeps You Up At Night?”

CLE event presented by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC)

Jason participated in an expert panel discussing data security along with Jennifer Barbour of Middleton Reutlinger and Jay Mallory of ImageQuest. Jason discussed how corporations can better position themselves to be prepared in the event of a data breach as well as the steps to take in the critical hours following the discovery of a breach. Jason leads the data breach incident response team at One Source Discovery.
Key Takeaways

  • Don’t kid yourself. It is no longer a matter of if, but when a data breach will affect you or your clients.
  • Good bet: invest in data breach prevention measures and mitigation plans now. Prevention is ALWAYS less expensive than response.
  • Unfortunate truth: data breaches happen to law firms too.
