Corporate Cloud Legal Update: 2018 Law, Legislation, and Regulation


This is a virtual event, accessible over the phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.


This is a complimentary program sponsored by Relativity.

From the U.S. Supreme Court’s consideration of United States v. Microsoft to Congress making Microsoft moot with the sudden and surprising passage—tucked away in the omnibus spending bill—of the Clarifying Lawful Uses of Overseas Data (CLOUD) Act, 2018 has already been a big year in the law of the corporate cloud.

Join us for this Bloomberg-Relativity webinar, the Corporate Cloud Legal Update, as Relativity’s David Horrigan welcomes the Honorable James Francis IV, Distinguished Lecturer at the City University of New York—who is also the retired US magistrate judge who issued the initial decision in Microsoft—and Patrick Zeller, Enterprise Privacy Officer and Associate General Counsel at Gilead Sciences, to examine the data law cases affecting your company and your clouds, as well as regulations, such as Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that affect corporations and their counsel.

Educational Objectives:
• Gain an understanding of the CLOUD Act
• Examine case law and regulatory developments that impact your business and its cloud
• Obtain strategies for ensuring compliance with these recent developments

Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Manager, Director, VP, C-Suite, Attorney/Counsel, CEO/President, General Counsel, Of Counsel
