In this episode Jonathan Armstrong and Tom Fox are back to discuss issues relating to data privacy, data protection and GDPR. Today, we take a look at the recent UK Supreme Court decision in the KBR document production case. KBR succeeded in its UK Supreme Court battle with the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). The case is interesting both in connection with the seizure of documents in SFO investigations and the sometimes criticized Section 2 notice procedure, which the UK Supreme Court held was unlawful in this case.

Highlights Include:

·      What was this case about?

·      Why was it so important?

·      What is a Section 2 Notice?

·      What about extra-territoriality?

·      What was the Court’s decision based on?

·      Lessons for the compliance professional.

·      Wither the SFO?
