3 Thoughts on E-Discovery in 2015 and Beyond – LegalTechNYC 2013 – ( Daniel Martin Katz + Michael J. Bommarito II )

The focus of my panel was “E-Discovery in 2015 and Beyond.” My Panel included: The Honorable Faith Hochberg, United States District Court for the District of New Jersey; Joe Looby, FTI Technology & Dawn Hall, FTI Consulting. As was true last year, I was the only Law Professor asked to speak at an event which draws more than 12,000 attendees from many of the law divisions of the Fortune 500, many of the law firms in the AmLaw100 / NLJ 250 and the large number of emerging legal technology companies which as Bill Henderson noted are not really being held back by Rule 5.4.
