  Westlaw - Key Number 2015
 

Wednesday is here and I'm counting down to Labor Day! Welcome to The LAD - just for you!

The LAD is your 360 view of the legal services industry. The LAD is your complete source for articles, jobs, and blogs. The LAD - it's all about the BUSINESS of LAW.

Je Suis Charlie


ILTA Conference - August 30st to Septebmer 3rd, 2015, Las Vegas.

_____________

Thanks to the team at Proxy PR, here is a 'live feed' description of the opening of ILTAcon.

Monday Night

Monday night's exhibit hall opening reception was a sight to behold. If you aren't keeping up, I'd encourage a quick check-in on the #ILTACON Twitter hashtag to see what I mean. The winners for best representation of the Once Upon A Time theme were:

1st place - AccessData, Booth 200
2nd Place - Traveling Coaches, Booth 801
3rd Place - Soundpath Legal, Booth 312

Congratulations to you all and well deserved! Phoenix Business Solutions went 'all in' on their Princess Bride regalia and certainly turned a few heads as well. Heading into Tuesday, the energy in the exhibit hall remains high, further endorsing ILTA's longstanding idea that a little whimsy can go a long way.

In my opinion, the standout session for the day was the standing room only 'Breaking the Cycle of 'But We've Always Done It This Way.' With a host of expert panelists and ring mastered by Encore Tech's Jeffrey Roach, this session was a treat.

The hallowed ILTA awards took place this evening and it's worth noting Litera took home yet another award for the second consecutive year, this time for Innovative Solution Provider of the Year. Clearly they have harnessed some momentum.

More to come! Mike Susong - Proxy PR

LinkedIn Chat Feature

Nancy Myrland brings us a bit of a scoop with this article covering the soon-to-be-released LinkedIn Chat feature.

The big question in my mind - do we need another chat tool? The answer might be 'yes' - if its deployed in the right place. LinkedIn might be that place.

Law Firm 'backwards integration'

Thanks to Ron Friedman for his coverage of a really interesting development: Scottish Law Firm Brodies has developed a contract management system it is offering to clients.

Many questions spring to mind since Brodies is not a software developer, like ... 'buy vs. build', and 'customer technical support'.

But the notion of a law firm that is integrating its services into areas typically provided by other 'specialist' providers - is an intriguing strategy. Its been happening with litigation support services for a long time - but one could argue lit support services were already being supplied on an 'in-house' basis so it was a logical step to extend this service to client. But software development?

Food for thought.
