Global Data Privacy

Meet Joe Dehner:

–          Member at Frost Brown Todd

–          Head of the International Business practice group

–          Concentrates his experience on multinational business and securities disputes


Joe joins Lionbridge for two, ten-minute podcast sessions covering Global Data Privacy.  Global Data Privacy is a hearty compliance topic, much like FCPA.  Any business handling cross-border personal information must comply with widely differing laws and regulations that protect personal data.

The first ten-minute session addresses the challenges for Global Data Privacy including collection, process, usage and storage. It will be of interest to any C-level executive or in-house counsel of businesses that deal with employees, customers or vendors in more than one country.

The second ten-minute session covers the solution for handling personal data according to local data privacy laws worldwide.  This session outlines a checklist for managing personal data compliance.

Legal translation doesn’t have to be a daunting task!

Legal Document Translation Services – A Daunting Task Simplified

Procuring translation and interpretation for Law Firms doesn’t have to be a daunting task.  Yet time and time again Attorneys, Paralegals, Office Administrators and Partners tell me they have disparate processes within their local office and across the law firm related to translation.  Suzie Q speaks French and usually helps with understanding the “gist” of the legal document for international collection and review during eDiscovery.  Jose is fluent in Spanish and trades patent prosecution translation work with an in-country affiliate.

Legal Service Translation Can Be Expensive When You Are Not Efficient!

Holland & Knight: Breaking for lunch

Holland & Knight Senior Counsel Bill Wise and I recently met for lunch.  An Attorney by trade and grandfather by night, anyone who knows Bill can attest to his humor, wit and charm; yet regard him as the “dean” of ethics law in the Boston area, who gets things done!  He is a grandfather of 5, writer, volunteer, public speaker and most recently appointed Chief Ethics Officer of the Ethics and Compliance Officers Association, a national member-driven professional organization representing the largest group of ethics and compliance practitioners in the world.

Lunch was a short two hours, over sandwiches and tea, in collaboration one of Lionbridge’s own Attorneys.  We discussed an array of topics ranging from his growing family, service level agreements for translation services, evolving Machine Translation technology and the UK Bribery Act impending impact on regional compliance laws. 

I am pleased to collaborate with Bill on today’s webinar addressing the impact compliance standards, such as FCPA or UK Bribery Act, have on multinational organizations implementing global compliance programs across many countries, languages and cultures.
