New York LegalTech Roundup 2016 – Law Technology Today


Extract from article by Joseph Bartolo published by Law Technology Today

Several experts that attended the conference were kind enough to provide me their thoughts about LegalTech 2016, and what they felt to be of vital importance. Below I provide observations and impressions of LegalTech that subject matter experts shared with me:

Hon. Judge Andrew J. Peck, U.S. Magistrate Judge, U.S District Court, Southern District of New York

“While there was a lot of discussion of ‘Information Governance’ at LTNY, I am not sure that companies in the real word are willing to spend money on this. They should, on a going forward basis to start, find a way to stop saving ESI that is of no business value. I also hope that at least the attendees of LTNY will be aware of the 12/1/15 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and as importantly, the Advisory Committee Notes to the Rules. The old ways will no longer apply, in terms of discovery requests and responses. And of course I continue to push the use of Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) non-waiver orders.”
