I spoke with Joseph Escobio, the Chief Information Officer for Klinedinst, a West Coast-based law firm, where he oversees all IT, e-discovery, and data services for the firm’s five offices.

We discussed his role at Klinedinst, the IT challenges that law firms and legal professionals likely to face in 2019, how they differ from what they’ve seen in the past, ways that technology leaders within law firms can structure change, how law firms can align their efforts with their outside providers, and where legal IT is headed.
