I had a great time on Friday speaking at Pitney Bowes’s National Client Advisory Board meeting in Scottsdale. I gave a presentation on top legal technology trends for 2006 (and I’ll be giving a similar presentation next month at the Association of Legal Administrators Annual Meeting).
Once again, I found myself at a great conference where I learned a lot about electronic discovery and records management, and I was almost the only lawyer there.
I learned not just about Pitney Bowes’s recent acquisition of Ibis Consulting (indicative of a trend I have mentioned this year of EDD vendors expanding into consulting services (including, especially, project management)), but much about records managmement and electronic discovery from the point of view of clients and vendors. I don’t know of a single lawyer who would not have benefited from hearing the insights of clients on electronic discovery issues that I heard.
In addition, I got a new understanding of how daunting the records management issues that face both clients and law firms really are.
It was a great conference and I thoroughly enjoyed getting the opportunity to present to this group.
My recent question still remains: why am I not seeing any lawyers at electronic discovery and legal tech conferences, especially ones where they could get insights into their clients’ thinking? Along these lines, I recommend that you read Jeff Carr’s comment on my recent post about this topic.
A big thank you to Pitney Bowes for bringing me to this conference.
There’s still time for lawyers to register for the ABA TECHSHOW.
