Another LegalTech New York has passed and as it seems this year saw a much greater response than the previous year, I look forward to a prosperous 2011.
With the increased prevalence of Facebook, Twitter, blogs and the like in both homes and offices, it’s not surprising that numerous sessions at LegalTech 2011 covered social media. I had the privilege of attending Buzz Branding Tools to Manage Reputation with speakers Bradley Shear, Michael Lackey and William Belt and Cloud, SharePoint and Social Media: Discovery on the Next Data Frontier with speakers Larry Briggi, Barry Murphy, Leigh Isaacs and James Zucker. Both sessions focused on the need to change e-Discovery practices to meet the demands of the ever-evolving face of technology.
Although it appeared there were fewer service providers at LegalTech New York this year, attendance seemed to be up and responses to Liquid Lit ManagerTM version 6.0 were amazing. The numbers of sessions focusing social media remind legal professionals of the importance of finding the right vendor who can keep up with changes in e-Discovery. New clustering, concept search and native file review features now available in Liquid Lit ManagerTM have the capacity to meet these needs—and attendees noticed.
