The vast majority of the world’s innovation wasn’t conceived by entrepreneurs, but instead by intrapreneurs within organizations who are rethinking the status quo, bringing fresh ideas to the surface to drive their organizations, as well as the industry, to the next level. Hear from industry leaders who will share their inspiring approach to their cutting-edge and tried-and-tested solutions. Prepare to be enlightened and entertained as we explore, uncover, and—together—build the next legal revolution.
While the types and volume of data we encounter have changed dramatically, the ways data is reviewed have only improved incrementally at best. The result? In almost all cases, 100% of insights, investment, and value created during any given matter are lost. There is a better way. Together, Lighthouse and some of our most forward-thinking clients have been pioneering this next generation of review. Hear first-hand from these industry leaders how they’re transforming their practice, challenging the status quo, and moving from obligatory response to proactive risk mitigation.
Every law firm and organization has inevitably faced trimmed budgets, reduced staff, and minimized overhead in order to stay competitive in the eDiscovery landscape. However, too much reduction in staff and resources can lead to a "race to the bottom" where employees are overworked and burned out, while work product suffers.
Join industry peers for a discussion of the importance of prioritizing mental health while balancing work demands, including strategies and tips for law firms, organizations, and leaders.
Afternoon Breakout Sessions
Smart Cities: Building a Data Strategy and Privacy Implications (CLE)
From hundreds of smart sensors placed around New York City to contactless payments on public transportation for Singapore’s 7.5 million passengers, investment in the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cities has proliferated immensely over the past 10 years. But with the innovation needed to sustain growing cities comes unique data and privacy questions. In this session, learn why data management and governance is critical to the success of smart cities and understand the tradeoff between open data and privacy inherent in IoT.
- Speakers: Fran Faircloth, Edward McNicholas, Damian Murphy, Richard Dib
Symbiotic Review: The Interplay Between Humans and Technology in Review and the Benefits of a Combined Approach (CLE)
What role will AI play in the future of document review? It’s a question that often devolves into an unnuanced debate of which performs better: humans or machines. However, in reality, the future of document review requires a symbiotic relationship between human expertise and AI as both are essential in tackling the more complex and voluminous datasets we see in eDiscovery today. Join our panel of experts as they discuss why attorneys, technology experts, and AI technology, working together, will be critical for the next horizon of document review.
- Speakers: Bobby Malhotra, Michelle Six, Amanda Jones, Rob Hellewell
Advancing Analytics: Evolving AI from Point Solution to Program (CLE)
We're seeing more and more instances of older technology being swapped out for AI, especially around classifying sensitive information such as privileged communications, PII, and source code, to name a few. But is that all that AI has to offer? Join this session to learn how taking a holistic approach to matters and analytics can lead to better outcomes, lower overall legal spend, and greater risk mitigation.
- Speakers: Vanessa Quaciari, Jenya Moshkovich, Justin Van Alstyne, Henry Link, John Del Piero
Finding the Needle in a Stack of Needles: How Digital Forensics Can Help You Win Your Case (CLE)
Modern day litigation and investigations begin and end with the digital evidence hiding in laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other data sources. But as corporate data volumes grow to record levels, finding that evidence can feel like an exercise in futility. Come hear real world examples of how digital forensics work has helped quickly end contentious litigation, prevent litigation, and win matters. In the process, they’ll share workflow tips, lessons learned, and demonstrate the overall value forensic investigations can have for legal teams.
- Speakers: Adam Jurist, Will Wei, Paige Hunt
Demystifying Privacy Risks in M365 (CLE)
The global data protection and privacy landscape continues to evolve, but with increased complexity. Experts estimate that, by 2022, 50% of all global personal data will be governed by regulations like GDPR. How does legal and compliance keep up? Join experts as they help define the key privacy considerations in connection with Microsoft 365 use—issues like data transfers, Teams, and MyAnalytics—and explore how to stay compliant and mitigate privacy related risk with appropriate planning and configuration considerations within M365.
- Speakers: Emily Dimond, Sara Johnson Meyers, John Collins
Getting to Hot Documents Fast to Improve Decision-Making and Outcomes (CLE)
The faster legal teams can get to key documents, the better the outcome will be for any investigation or litigation. But finding the most important documents and getting to the heart of the matter can be challenging in today’s modern and more challenging datasets. In this session, our panel of experts will share the secrets to finding the documents that matter most, including the importance of retaining institutional knowledge, sharing effective search methodology tips, and explaining how to use key evidence for more strategic decision-making.

While modern legal practice is intellectually and professionally satisfying, it also produces intense pressure and stress. Courts, clients, and colleagues expect immediate responses. Deadlines loom over our heads. These days, it feels like lawyers and legal professionals are expected to be “on” 24/7. We all need to juggle too many balls at a time. How do we relate to ourselves and others under this stress or when a ball drops? It matters because how we respond to stress can make or break our health, well-being, relationships, and careers.
Like building our bicep muscles at the gym, a body of promising research in neuroscience is demonstrating that we can train our “attention muscles” using mindfulness and compassion practices, which in turn helps to manage our stress, enhance our health, reduce anxiety and depression, and cultivate more resilience.
In this one-hour session, Ruth Hauswirth discusses research findings on the benefits of mindfulness practices and shares practical tips to reduce stress, increase well-being, and experience a lifestyle more aligned and integrated with your goals and values.
Speaker: Ruth Hauswirth
In 2022, simply having the requisite diversity metrics is not enough to keep your firm or organization performing at its best—especially if equity is not evident on a micro level. Ensuring that inclusion and diversity is represented across every team, project, and matter is now imperative to investors, leaders, and customers/clients, and will ultimately improve overall organizational performance.
Join this dynamic panel to learn how to take diversity and inclusion beyond the statistics in the legal space and unleash the full power of a diverse network effect.
Emails and videos and chats, oh my! The way we communicate in the workplace is constantly evolving as organizations strive to provide employees with the best collaboration and communication tools. While this evolution is crucial for remote working and employee satisfaction, the ever-growing list of new data sources creates a constant challenge for both in-house and external legal teams as they strive to mitigate risk, protect data, and ensure that eDiscovery and compliance obligations can be met.
Come join our panel of experts as they discuss what the future of workplace communication holds, and explain how legal teams and organizations can prepare for what’s next.
As datasets become more complex and data volumes grow, the line between “self-service” and “full-service” eDiscovery continues to blur. The old methodology of keeping certain categories of matters or investigations solely in-house, while completely outsourcing others is becoming infeasible. A matter may start in-house but require certain workflows to be outsourced, while another matter may start out completely outsourced but then move back to be managed in-house. Legal teams need processes, tools, and platforms that can easily adapt to this dynamic back and forth.
During this panel, industry experts will explain how legal teams can more seamlessly move between self-service and full-service, including how to adapt and leverage modern workflows, platforms, and tools that can flex as needs change.
