Who doesn’t love an A-Team reference? Let’s get to the backstory. … On September 26, Ken Koch (Managing Director, KPMG, LLP) and I had the privilege to speak to a roomful of healthcare and compliance lawyers on the subject “eDiscovery: A Tactical Approach to Managing Risk...
While the credit and debt crises and the political bickering in Washington have sent markets onto yet another roller coaster ride (and disgusted most of us) -- and on the heels of an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal on in-house hiring practices -- it’s worth revisiting the...
Social media is here. You know it from your personal life. You know its usage from political uprisings, natural disasters, other world events and the constant call to “weigh in” from news outlets or broadcast programs. And everyone wants to be your “Friend.” It’s...

Choosing a technology vendor is a critical piece in making a review project successful. There are literally hundreds to choose from as was recently seen again at Legal Tech 2011. Even with lots of consolidation in the industry there are still many national and regional players to consider. While...
There’s a quiet debate among legal pundits that’s often played out on social media sites such as Twitter, one that probably not too many people pay attention to. It’s almost an ancillary argument to the “traditional” way of billing for legal services, but it a debate...
