OK, WHO SAID LITIGATION SUPPORT WAS BORING?!

The Common Scold again peeks behind the scenes at the LTN awards to tell us how Latham & Watkins partners John Lynch and Mark Beckett won "Most Innovative Use of Technology in a Trial."

It's quite a story -- sounds like these Paris-based litigators got sucked into a she-said/she-said fashion design dispute over a licensing agreement and joint venture. Their solution? Producing a winning  multimedia showstopper in their client's defense:

To demonstrate the designer’s standing "in a quick and memorable manner," the team used a combination of animation, magazine video footage, photographs, and the client's signature club music.

"The team also gathered, organized and digitized case data, and constructed an interactive case timeline, showing the various phases of the joint venture relationship (from "romance" to "honeymoon" to the "divorce").

As a coup de grace, the client was so impressed, she asked for a personal copy for marketing purposes!

Monica Bay also describes the results for "Most Innovative Use of Technology by a Law Firm," in which the judges selected Hogan & Hartson, specifically citing its CIO, William Gregory.
