Event outline:
With the exponential increase in digital data, the need to use technology at a much earlier stage of proceedings is ever more evident. Technology now plays a crucial role in efficiently identifying, categorising, and safeguarding sensitive information in competition law – for example, within the framework of confidentiality rings.

Looking at this through the lens of PD 1/2024*, our panel will explore how technology – which is both the problem and the solution – could be used effectively to manage the increasing complexity of data. Our experts will also look at how collaboration, between all parties, including legal tech suppliers, could offer a real opportunity to navigate these challenges proactively.

*Practice Direction 1/2024 addresses the establishment of confidentiality rings, a mechanism allowing restricted distribution of documents containing sensitive information.

Why should you attend this webinar and how will it enhance your daily practice?
This webinar aims to dissect new guidance at the Competition Appeal Tribunal, in line with recent advances in tech, with a real focus on how to navigate both in daily practice to work more efficiently and strategically.

Who should attend this webinar?
Those with an interest in Competition Law, from academia to law firms and corporates.

Why is this webinar important to attend?
With the advancement of new tech tools, including the explosion of AI, the need to knowledge share and collaborate is paramount to staying apace with a shifting legal landscape.
