It’s been three years now since the electronic data discovery rules were added to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and the number of reported cases involving electronically stored information has skyrocketed. But some lawyers still “simply do not anticipate ESI issues.” On this edition of Law Technology Now, host Monica Bay chats with Cecil Lynn of counsel to Ryley Carlock and Applewhite, to discuss key 2009 rulings and why most of them are reiterating established principles. Later in the program, Monica is joined by Henry Dicker, vice president of ALM Events and executive director of LegalTech, to talk about the upcoming LegalTech NY 2010.
LegalTech New York 09 will be a three-day whirlwind, with vendor demonstrations, panels, parties and blogging! A feast for the legal community, with plenty of activity to inspire both veterans and novices. Joining host, Monica Bay, Editor-In-Chief of Law Technology News, for a preview of some of this year’s highlights is Henry Dicker, vice-president of Incisive Media Events, and Donna Payne, CEO of Payne Consulting Group, and winner of LTN’s first Consultant of the Year award.
In today’s competitive legal environment, it’s not enough to just offer the best lawyers, you must also offer the best technology. From “client-facing” tools, such as extranets, collaboration tools and e-billing to your firm’s infrastructure, the technology you use can be the “differentiator” that helps you win and keep clients. Join Monica Bay, Law Technology Now host and editor-in-chief of ALM’s Law Technology News along with guest, Doug Caddell, CIO of Foley & Lardner, talks about how his firm has exploited technology to improve client relationships, in a preview of the “Sell Your Tech” panel that will be part of our FutureTech track (sponsored by BlueArc) at LegalTech West Coast. Also joining us: Special guest Henry Dicker, head of LegalTech, with news about special offers for bloggers who plan to “live blog” during the LTWC Los Angeles sessions June 26 & 27.
