As LegalTech 2014 wraps up I thought I would share some highlights (and weather-related lowlights).

Things Have Changed

The Thomson Reuters event featuring Robert S. Mueller III was one of the best sessions I have attended over the many years I have been to LegalTech. In his speech he provided candid insights into the challenges, successes and learnings during his 12 years leading the FBI. The themes fit very nicely with the buzzed-about keynote address by Jason Thomas earlier in the day, where he presented on technology advances (including the hidden web and Bitcoin) and associated security and law enforcement considerations.

You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere

This was my first experience where snow, sleet and rain brought things to a grinding halt in New York City. Things were fairly gridlocked all over the city on Day 2. Many attendees struggled with travel due to weather, vendors had to scramble to change flights, and I mostly managed to avoid the three foot puddles of ice water spread across the city.

Talkin’ New York

Throughout the show, the Thomson Reuters demo suite was bustling with client meetings showcasing our Litigation Solutions offering with discussions covering our new Case Logistix release, the latest happenings for Case Notebook, and the pending release of Drafting Assistant that will integrate with Practical Law. We also spent time with members of the media to cover latest developments for Firm Central including the new features around Client Portal, Custom Forms, and Quickbooks integration for Time and Billing.
