Nearly Two Thirds of ILTA Attendees are from Large Firms – eDiscovery Trends


One of the biggest legal technology shows of the year, the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) annual educational conference for 2014 will take place next week at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville (August 17 thru August 21).  eDiscoveryDaily will be reporting next week about the latest eDiscovery trends being discussed at the show.  According to InsideLegal.com, almost two thirds of the firm attendees will come from firms with more than 200 attorneys.

As noted by their graphic (available here), 62% of the attendees (based on conference pre-registrants as of August 12) will come from firms with more than 200 attorneys.  Here is the breakdown:

  • 1-50 Attorneys: 13% of attendees;
  • 51-100 Attorneys: 11% of attendees;
  • 101-200 Attorneys: 14% of attendees;
  • 201-400 Attorneys: 18% of attendees;
  • 401-1,000 Attorneys: 31% of attendees;
  • 1,001+ Attorneys: 13% of attendees.

InsideLegal also provides a breakdown of registrants by country – not surprisingly, 1,345 out of 1,466 attendees (nearly 92%) as of July 29 are from the US.

We will identify the sessions each day that relate to eDiscovery and Information Governance, so stay tuned!
