How do Corporate Legal Departments Control Costs Associated with the Growing Amounts of Retained Data

Posted 03/9/17 8:32 PM by Matt Masterson

As corporate legal departments embark on 2017, the pressure to contain the costs associated with the avalanche of user-created data continues to grow. In-house lawyers have been asking the same question for many years ─ how do we control these costs? 

The Cloud: Legal Professionals Still Seem Skeptical

Posted 03/23/16 3:00 PM by Matt Masterson

The results of a recent survey of 148 legal professionals conducted during Legal Tech New York found that 2/3 of these respondents were “concerned” or “very concerned” about using cloud-based applications. This is consistent with some of the conversations I have had with lawyers or legal technology professionals who relay that their corporate clients are driving part of this skepticism - some even forbid the use of the cloud. When you dig into the survey, there are additional reasons for this skepticism which include the fear of the inadvertent disclosure of data (64%), and the potential theft of intellectual property (39%). However, I believe that underlying much of this fear is the apparent lack of control one feels when not keeping data on internal systems.  

eDiscovery Providers : Decision 2016

Posted 12/3/15 5:09 PM by Matt Masterson

As we near the end of 2015, there is a good chance you have either planned or are planning on what 2016 will look like for your business. Part of those plans will include what vendors you will choose to work with in the New Year, and if you are a law firm or corporate legal department, what eDiscovery vendor(s) you choose to work with is one of the major components of the 2016 plan. Coincidentally, even if you are not a follower of politics, you are probably aware that 2016 is a presidential election year. Just by the sheer amount of media coverage already devoted to the race, it is nearly impossible to avoid a sound bite, news segment or a candidate appearing on a late night talk show attempting to convince voters that he or she is the one to lead the country forward. Throughout this process, certain caricatures of politicians, justly or unjustly, have been reinforced.
