Today marks the last day of #LTNY17! Congrats to everyone on another successful Legaltech New York. For those of you that did not get a chance to attend, here’s a recap of two key developments from our industry’s busiest conference.
Legaltech 2017, Now Known as Legalweek (the Experience)
Building on the popularity of its annual Legaltech New York conference, this year, ALM launched a new event, “Legalweek, The Experience,” in an effort to broaden its reach past the technology sector. Legalweek was designed to focus on seven key areas of legal business: Legaltech, LegalExecutive, LegalCIO, LegalPros, LegalMarketing, LegalSmallFirm and LegalWomensForum.
Habitual LTNY attendees were happy to report that the stalwart event remained largely unchanged as part of the greater Legalweek experience, with many attendees appreciating the additional keynotes occurring throughout the week. The LegalWomensForum and LegalCIO breakouts seemed to gain the most traction in Legalweek’s inaugural year, with plenty of room to grow the experience in years to come.
Two Great Companies, One New Name: KrolLDiscovery
Legaltech was not the only entity to reveal a new name this week. In December 2016, Kroll Ontrack was acquired by LDiscovery, and LTNY17 was the perfect opportunity to unveil the combined companies’ new name brand. Now, two renowned ediscovery companies are coming together to form one global leader: KrolLDiscovery.
KrolLDiscovery will use the combined resources of both companies to provide our clients with the best ediscovery services on the market with the same reliability they have come to expect. Having served clients for over 30 years, the combined organization will have offices in 19 countries with approximately 1,300 employees worldwide.
Legaltech was a buzz over the new KrolLDiscovery brand and, not surprisingly, many Legaltech attendees turned to social media to express their excitement. If you are looking to stay up to speed on all things KrolLDiscovery, make sure you follow us on our new LinkedIn page.
