Legaltech NY 2018 Round-Up

Legaltech NY 2018 Round-Up

Starting the new year in New York at Legaltech

Starting 2018 in New York at Legaltech

January in New York brings with it the (very) cold, as well as one of the largest legal technology events of the year: Legaltech.  Set in the heart of Midtown Manhattan from January 30th to February 1st, with more than 10,000 attendees from all areas of law, Legaltech is the perfect event for legal professionals to see what technology and service providers have to offer.

Iconic took this opportunity to showcase its latest legal translation software solutions for e-discovery in the main exhibit hall of the event. CEO, John Tinsley, and Dana Sheridan gave numerous demonstrations and spoke about our different translation solutions with attendees of the conference, as well as existing clients and partners in the New York area. Year on year, we’ve seen increased interest in the area of automated translation, and this year was no exception  The people we spoke to who are involved in litigation, confirmed that when firms come across foreign language documents, they typically don’t have an easy / fast / cost effective solution for how to handle them.  It was great to be able to explain how Iconic’s legal translation software solutions allow for seamless processing, review, and analysis of data, regardless of the language.

Some of the most common questions we had were around languages covered, and how exactly the tool could be integrated and used in different workflows. We were able to show visitors our Relativity demo where the on-demand translation can be accessed directly from the review platform, for more that 50 different languages.

While the conversations and meetings during the day were very enjoyable and thought-provoking, of course no LegalTech conference, or visit to New York, would be complete without some of the great catch up conversations with colleagues, clients, and friends old and new after hours as well.

Back in the exhibit hall, there was some friendly competition with our neighbouring exhibitors with regards to some of the giveaways at the booths.  We think it’s fair to say – in our completely unbiased opinion – that our raffle prize, a limited edition bottle of Jameson whiskey, was the most popular item on offer!  This is perhaps no surprise given the strong Irish connections in the Big Apple!

It was a real pleasure speaking with so many of you at Legaltech, and to be able to meet up with colleagues.  If you missed seeing us but would still like to learn more about our translation solutions for e-discovery, please click the link below and we’ll be in touch!
