TRU Tips

There is currently a high demand for and sudden drought of ESI processors.

TOP 3 Reasons For The ESI Data Processor Drought
  • Law firms have been pushing their processing to third-party vendors with greater regularity, meaning fewer data processors in the low to mid-market with law firm experience.
  • Many data processors have evolved into project managers and no longer want to participate technically in processing.
  • The squeeze on processing margins has hiring managers wanting to pay less for processing talent, but still desiring seasoned technical skills for processing analysts.

TRU Tips

Planning your annual conference spend/agenda is a critical part of your professional development.

TOP 3 Legalweek 2019 Takeaways
  • It is Legalweek, not Legaltech. The shift and focus for target audience is now lawyers, not just legal technologists.
  • There was lots of talk of “AI” but few are really using it; this event still centers largely on e-discovery providers and ancillary solutions.
  • Almost everyone on the consulting firm and service provider side of legal services was in town, and the meetings that occur at this event still set the tone for the year ahead for new and renewed business alliances.
