Bow Tie Law 200: ILTA 2010 Recap

My 200th posting is a recap of ILTA 2010

The 2010 ILTA Conference was a great success.  The conference had excellent content, an active exhibit hall and many networking opportunities. 

The Exhibit Hall

I spent most of the show in the exhibit hall.  The vendors all provided interesting updates on their services and products.  I think the following will be the most useful to attorneys:

                Lexis Nexus product integration with Microsoft Office:  The integration of Lexis’ legal research search tools and Office should expedite workflow in creating legal memoranda. 

                Big Hand Digital Dictation:   “Big Hand” is maximizing traditional diction with mobile apps.  Differently something worth checking out if you need to dictate a memo and email it directly to your assistant on the go.

                Nextpoint:  There are several cloud preservation tools entering the market.  Nextpoint offers a tool to crawl your client’s online presence from their websites to social media for archiving. 

Head in the Clouds

I attended one session on Corporate Information in the Cloud.  The highly talented panel included Cynthia Bateman, KPMG, Vincent Catanzaro, William Kellermann, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, and Daryl Teshima. 

The panel focused on how organizations are losing control over information creation, such as employees creating a Google Doc for project collaboration outside of the corporate firewall.   Other challenges include the legal risk of storing information in the Cloud verse the IT benefit of outsourcing.  

D4 & AccessData Group

D4 and the AccessData Group hosted a bowling party at the Palms.  The event was extremely well attended.  I am proud to say our team took home second place. 


I had the privilege of being interviewed by Christy Burke for a Legal IT Professionals podcast . 

Bow Tie Thoughts

I enjoyed ILTA for all the networking, content and seeing what is new in the market.  I congratulate the organizers on another very successful year.
