HSR Second Requests are typically large, arduous matters that take an enormous amount of time and resources. They can be unforgiving and demanding, but the challenges of an HSR Second Request can be reduced with the right combination of expertise and technology usage.
I recently moderated a panel at The Lawyer's General Counsel Strategy Summit in Alicante and spoke on a panel at the Banking Litigation and Regulations Forum in London. Both sessions had a central theme, the Cloud and how in-house lawyers should be aware of the implications of their companies moving to the Cloud. The fact that this topic was included in both events in quick succession is telling in terms of the increasing focus on the legal implications, rather than operational considerations, within organisations.
Facing a second request can be painful, kind of like searching for a needle in a haystack exacerbated by a strict deadline looming above it all. And, as volumes of data continue to grow and types of data become increasingly complex, these matters are often inefficient and costly, while getting to the key documents (needles) quickly can feel like an insurmountable challenge.
