I spoke with David Schnurman, the founder and CEO of Lawline, a leading provider of continuing legal education, and the author of The Fast Forward Mindset: How to Be Fearless & Focused to Accelerate Your Success (Highpoint Executive Publishing, 2019). We discussed his work at Lawline, the inspiration for The Fast Forward Mindset, the most impactful lesson in the book, its 30-day challenge, and suggestions for other entrepreneurs interested in writing a book, among other topics.
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.
