Rolling off of the successes that we experienced at Legaltech NY launching CVFox into the market, ILTA presented the opportunity to participate in their roadshow program to start a dialog on elements that are at the core of TCDI. The roadshows are strictly educational in nature, so the topic I presented to audiences in Charlotte, NC; Orlando; Boston; New York; and Washington, D.C., was on data reuse, and managed services creating growing case intelligence. Each market was different and the discussions remained topical, but each had specific dialogue based on the attendee’s experiences.
The purpose was to have the forum educate all who attended by leveraging our experience together in varying roles and perspectives. I learned quite a bit and was grateful to all who attended and was willing to share their individual experiences to the group so we could all learn from what they have done. The major takeaways were:
- Managed Services is still simply a business model and there isn’t a lot of process improvements coming from the MS provider in general
- Data Reuse is good in theory, but difficult to deploy because of the structure of the case, technology and overall goal
- There is an overt need to find a solution that provides ease of process with small to mid-sized cases as traditional methods of outsourcing are too expensive. The technology doesn’t scale down and there is no price predictability.
Overall, I appreciated the opportunity to present, learn and continue discussions with many of the attendees. ILTA does an incredible job of keeping these organized, attended and promoted. I don’t know how they are able to manage so many! I look forward to working with ILTA on additional roadshows later in the year! Stay tuned…
Rick started in the legal industry in 2002 working for a litigation support company where he began consulting with law firms on paper and electronic discovery. As eDiscovery began to grow, his path took him to deploying software in data processing and forensics. In 2006, he became a co-founder of Wave Software for high volume unstructured data culling for a more streamlined review. The company quickly grew in the emerging eDiscovery market and as a result, he co-founded The Masters Conference to bring thought leaders together for education on the evolving best legal practices. In 2012, he began working in the complex data/document review with iCONECT and began to consult with corporations, the federal government and law firms in complex review. Rick joined TCDI in 2014.
