Brewing eDiscovery 9+ Legal Tech Events for January 2016

Something is brewing in eDiscovery.

Among the list of events below (#6) will provide a preview of what is coming in the new LexisNexis® Concordance® Desktop eDiscovery product.  And #7 hints at the beginning of the “sea of change” stemming from our Raleigh Technology Center for litigation solutions in the next 12 months.

Below is our monthly legal tech roundup, including two conferences to be held this spring: one focused on large law business development and the other centering on corporate legal departments.  As always, we may add a couple more events to this list during the month, so be sure to check back.

3. Financial Management Feature Friday: Juris® and IRS Reporting on Form 1099

What are 1099’s? Who gets them? How do I create them? What box do I use? To whom and where do I send them? When are they due? These are questions often asked at year-end by Firm Administrators, Firm Accountants & Bookkeepers and are a frequent source of frustration. This webinar will demonstrate what you need to know about preparing 1099’s and meeting the critical deadlines related to them.

 4. Billable Hours Feature Friday: Capture Every Billable Hour with Chrometa

In this special sneak peek, we will share with you a new vision for what eDiscovery will become in this new era of deep data and non-linear workflows.
