DLA Piper is proud to be a partner of the Paris Arbitration Week (PAW) 2019, which will take place from April 1 to 5, 2019.

On April 4, DLA Piper will host an afternoon conference on GDPR & Arbitration.

Since May 2018, the GPDR has replaced the EU Directive on the processing of personal data, but it carries on many of the fundamental principles in that Directive. There are, however, some significant differences between the GDPR and the Directive. For example, the GDPR provides for significantly increased fines for non-compliance.

The GDPR has drawn the attention of major businesses around the world, who have devoted significant resources to compliance. The arbitration community has not escaped the debate surrounding the GDPR and its potential consequences on the conduct of arbitral proceedings - but best practices are only just being developed.
