After two years of scrutiny, hand-wringing and data audits, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation takes effect May 25. That means big changes for how businesses collect, process and store personal information—and steep penalties for companies that fail to comply.

It’s also a pivotal moment for lawyers. If you haven’t stopped to think about how the GDPR will affect your practice, this week’s Legal Speak podcast with reporter Ben Hancock is a good place to start.

Ben interviews Kolvin Stone, a London-based privacy lawyer in with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe; Debbie Reynolds, an e-discovery expert with EimerStahl Discovery Solutions in Chicago; and Jeewon Serrato, the San Francisco-based head of Shearman & Sterling’s privacy and data protection group.
