HOW thrilling to attend LegalTech New York and feel the energy and excitement of a revitalized tech community. Everybody was just simply abuzz with a sense of a new, fresh beginning. More than one vendor whispered in my ear that his or her company had the best month ever in January. The halls were jammed with attorneys eager to find out about the latest developments in software, hardware and services.

What generated the electricity? Here's two theories: First, at the risk of sounding maudlin, the tragedies of Sept. 11 were also a wake-up call to law firms. No longer can any firm be without off-site, out-of-region backup media and without lawyers who are equipped to operate as self-contained mobile units. And everybody has suddenly realized the necessity of a well-stocked home office. Theory 2: The Y2K fever was 1999, and common wisdom says most technology has three year life cycles. So it's upgrade time. Whatever the reason, we're happy to help you with the latest information about the new products and services.
