I had the privilege of interviewing Jeff McCoy, Haresh Bhungalia, David Horrigan, Shawn Gaines, Ed Walters, Erez Bustan, Patrick DiDomenico, Ian Campbell, Brad Blickstein, Warrick McLean, Helle Schwartz-Grossman, Caterina Latte, Kim Taylor, Craig Carpenter, Scott Wallingford, Scott Winter, Sarah Schaaf, Rick Weber, and Tony Caputo at ILTACON 2019 and this is a mash-up of their perspectives.
I spoke with Barry Solomon, executive vice president at Foundation Software Group, the developer of a firm intelligence platform used by lawyers, KM professionals, marketing and business development leaders, and an array of individuals responsible for the business and practice of law. We discussed the value of focusing on firm intelligence over experience management and how it is impacting law firms.
I spoke with Emily Hostage, a vice president at Burford Capital, a publicly-traded litigation finance company. We discussed how litigation finance differs from other forms of capital, the advantages, the difference between how a law firm and a corporate legal department uses litigation finance, ways to evaluate litigation risk, and where the litigation finance market is headed.
I spoke with Joy Heath Rush, the CEO of the International Legal Technology Association, which provides educational and networking opportunities for professionals who support the practice of law with technology. We discussed how the organization has changed in the past 2 1/2 decades, her vision for this year’s ILTACON, new programming, the advantages of attending, and how to cut through the legal tech noise.
