Session 6: Revenge of the Sea Squirts: More Glenn West on Encrusted M&A Boilerplate - The need to understand and appropriately modify “standard” M&A boilerplate to fit your deal cannot be over emphasized.

This presentation explores three areas: core legal services (legal research, deposition summaries, drafting, etc.), support services (bookkeeping, website development, HR, etc.) and ancillary services (tenant representatives, retirement plan implementation, or other professional services for one-off-projects). Session 13: The Company in Crisis: Talking to Investors, Regulators and the Media - Best practices for crisis preparation, planning, and how to disclose and communicate after a crisis event.

Session 14: Representation of Multiple Parties: Ethical and Practical Considerations - Examine the advantages and disadvantages of using pool counsel in internal investigations, including the impact of joint representation, whether the various clients' interests are sufficiently aligned, the types of agreements entered with the company, the logistics of the engagement, consequences of one client being charged or cooperating, and managing client information to avoid potential cross-contamination. Session 15: Ephemeral Data and Other Emerging Technology - In cybersecurity, staying on pace with current technology, issues, and approaches is a step behind. Practitioners must remain ahead of what is current, or else they will find themselves obsolete, commoditized, outside best practice, or a victim of a cyber incident or crisis. Take a look ahead with thought leadership and awareness around emerging, nascent, or predicted cyber technologies, approaches, threats, challenges, and applications such as transactional due diligence, ephemeral data, incident response, smart cities, alternative commerce and banking, identification, contracting, connected devices, artificial intelligence, risk transfer, data analytics, ethical and privacy concerns, IoT, industrial controls, and connectivity.

Session 2: Strategic Use of E-Discovery - Fewer than one out of a hundred cases are tried. Accordingly, discovery strategy is often more vital than trial strategy.
