You can’t help but wonder about an Am Law 200 firm that significantly cut or eliminated IT and litigation support staff attendance at this year’s LegalTech and ILTA ’09 conferences. The reasons vary, from “it wouldn’t look right” to “we just have to cut expenses everywhere.”

Good thing these shows weren’t held in Las Vegas. No firm would have sent its IT folks there for a week of blackjack and “Texas Hold-’em” parties. Not a chance. It just wouldn’t send the right message, what with the layoffs, frozen salaries and the elimination of bonuses. But these shows weren’t in Vegas, and despite the beliefs of some (dare I say, many?), they aren’t paid vacations for the technology staff.
