GDPR Issues in U.S. and International Litigation and Arbitration

On November 30, 2018, I had the privilege of serving as a panel member on an International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC) presentation addressing GDPR in International Dispute Resolution.   The other panel members were: Robert Bond, of Bristows, in London, England; Alexandra Simotta, of Six-Group, in Vienna, Austria; and Janis Block, of CMS in Cologne, Germany.  The panel’s objective was to explore the issues arising under the GDPR in international dispute resolution, whether in arbitration or court litigation.   My responsibility was to offer a U.S. trial counsel’s response to the subject.   This article shares a few of the ideas raised during the panel, and a few which have occurred to the author in response to hearing from my fellow panel members.
