    Surviving Discovery in the Age of Social Media


    Join Oregon Paralegal Association and Cicayda for a discussion of social media topics as related to various practices of law, including eDiscovery, IP, Court opinions, and ABA ethics opinions.

    Speakers: Jeff Sharpe and Jeff Herron

    Jeff Herron is a veteran of the Salt Lake City legal market where he has built litigation support expertise for over thirty years. Jeff began his career as a litigation paralegal for a Salt Lake City-based law firm, supporting large and complex litigation cases for eighteen years. He has spent the past fifteen years working for litigation support/eDiscovery vendors in various capacities, including sales, sales management, operations management, project management, and consulting. Since July 2013, he has been working remotely out of Salt Lake City as Senior Vice President Client Solutions for Cicayda, an eDiscovery services and software company headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife (a paralegal with 25+ years’ experience), two sons - ages 23 and 16, and his painfully energetic Labrador, Teddy.

    Jeff Sharpe is a native of Virginia and has resided in Roanoke for the past 13 years. He is new to the eDiscovery world where he has been employed byCicayda for the past year as a Business Development Manager. Recently he has taken over the Minnesota market for Cicayda working with litigation support clients in Minneapolis. Before Cicayda, Jeff had been in medical diagnostic sales for the previous 9 years. Jeff enjoys his family time outside of work with his wife Carolyn (elementary school librarian) and his two kids in college(when home), Andrew 20 and Ali 22.

    Oregon Paralegal Association is excited to share an CLE opportunity presented by the Illinois Paralegal Association.


    Oh, Canada Due Diligence

    Our Canadian neighbors are consistently the number one jurisdiction for due diligence filing and searching. With that in mind, having a basic understanding of the due diligence framework is important for US attorneys. This presentation gives an overview of the Canadian PPSA system. This discussion shows the background of this law, how it works, the differences between the provinces, and lastly how it compares to our UCC system in some key areas. Lastly, there is case law dialogue to assist in framing due diligence in Canada.
