LTNY 2009: Ask EDD Vendors, What Can You Do for Me?
After talking with a few e-discovery vendors at LegalTech this morning, the general consensus seems to be that while they all expect an uptick in litigation as a result of the financial crisis, it hasn't happened yet. So far, anecdotal evidence suggests clients have been looking to cut costs, opting for alternative dispute resolution over costly litigation. That's put the trial teams at a number of e-discovery vendors on hold, but it hasn't slowed their new product announcements. These leaner times mean clients should ask more of their vendors, says Sean Doherty, Law.com's legal technology editor.
Whether you are looking for improved technical support, trying to
satisfy a business need, aiming to cut costs, or looking for innovative
answers to remain competitive, vendors and service providers are at
LegalTech looking for business. So don’t hesitate to tell them your
needs. They listen and innovate.
Doherty provides a roundup of EDD announcements from the first day of LegalTech, including news from Fios, Exterro, Kroll Ontrack and Nexidia.
