Legal Tech Expo attended by more than 120 members of Massachusetts legal community

Vendors offer latest technological innovations for law office efficiency

The Legal Tech Expo, held Nov. 29 at the Needham Sheraton Hotel, was a free, all-day tradeshow highlighting the latest technological innovations aiding the practice of law. The first MBA tradeshow in nine years, the Legal Tech Expo was a joint effort with Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and attracted more than 120 members of the Bay State legal community. Many participating attorneys attended the expo to learn ways to simplify their practices and promote office efficiency through various electronic services.

"We are here to help attorneys spend more time on billable hours versus non billable hours," said vendor participant Tim Resker, director of sales for Integrated Scanning Solutions, a company focused on electronic document management systems. Fellow vendor, Steve Brogdon, senior account executive for secure e-mail vendor Zixcorp, noted that companies are starting to look at the legal market as something that could be viable to business.

The seven-hour expo featured 29 vendors, 28 of which also participated in 15-minute discussions and product demonstrations. These "Tech Talks" were offered throughout the day, providing attendees with tailored information dealing directly with firm needs. MBA staff presented information about the Casemaker program and the recently launched MBA online forums.

The MBA thanks the event sponsors and participating vendors.
