For this February edition of "12on12," Law Technology News asked attendees about their favorite moment at LegalTech New York. We were flooded with responses, so in no particular order, here are just a few of what we received:
1. THE EXHIBIT HALL
I really enjoyed my time walking the exhibit hall floor and seeing so many familiar faces. Having been to LegalTech now for nine straight years, I'm always amazed at how many people I know from the industry. Brad Jenkins, president and CEO, CloudNine Discovery, Houston.
As a marketer for several exhibitors ... it was pretty amazing to see the depth and breadth of technology [offerings] specific to the legal market all under one roof. Gwen Hoover, vice president, marketing services, Altitude Marketing, Emmaus, Pa.
Meeting people we have only spoken to on the phone. We are so far away down in Australia that it is hard to get a sense of where things are moving, technology-wise. Attending the show allows us to get an overall feel rather than a skewed view from just a couple of suppliers. Anthony and Georgina Ridley-Smith, Matrix Solutions, Sydney.
Law firm partners came by our booth, and asked us to scan their badges and to pitch our products, because one of the partners identified us as the "bosses" of our marketing associate who had chatted with one of the partners at length earlier. Chi Eng, CEO, Neulexa Corp., New York.
2. THE JUDGES
The keynote address, " The Morning Show," with Patrick Oot and Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck. I thought that the jazz music was energizing and refreshing a great way to start the day. Daniel Regard, CEO, Intelligent Discovery Solutions, Washington, D.C.
The Wednesday predictive coding mock hearing ["How Safe is Your CAR?"] with Magistrate Judge James Francis IV and some of the experts and participants in Global Aerospace. The results of Global Aerospace, (the first judge-ordered and utilized predictive coding) were published just before LegalTech, it was good to see a live, almost "re-creation" of a matter where predictive coding should be argued to be used. Michael Dalewitz, director of e-discovery, Trustpoint International, New York City.
