The LegalTech Jungle

It’s hard to believe that the annual Legal Tech conference is just around the corner, Feb. 2-4 in New York. Hundreds of vendors and thousands of attendees will descend upon the Hilton New York Hotel in what has become a must-attend event for those of us on the technology side of the profession.

If you’ve been to LegalTech, you know it can be a little overwhelming and it’s important to go in with a plan. While sorting through the masses, we have several distinct objectives while we're there:

  1. Review the latest technology tools that can reduce the time and expense of litigation in a number of areas. We are particularly interested in technology that can reduce the amount of data to process and review (see: early case assessment tools)
     
  2. Learn from legal and corporate counsel the challenges they face and the measures they have taken to address . Panels of interest include: "Executing eDiscovery Inside the Corporation," "Corporate Legal Department vs. Law Firm Perspectives," "Managing eDiscovery in an Alternative Fee Envrionment," and "State of the Art in eDiscovery Automation and Early Case Assessment"
     
  3. Meet with technology providers and share what we’ve learned about their services and discuss ways we can work more efficiently together

All of this will help us better serve our clients now and in the future. eDiscovery can be a jungle, and LegalTech aids our efforts to be the best safari guides we can be. In a couple of weeks I will post a post-conference summary with information you’ll hopefully find helpful.

Until then … wish us luck.
