The Readers Have Spoken, in New York: eDiscovery Trends

Last week, the New York Law Journal (NYLJ) published its seventh annual Reader Rankings, where the New York legal community cast their votes for your favorite vendors.  Over 8,000 people cast votes for their favorite vendors in 100+ categories!  That’s a lot of people and a lot of categories.

In their article publishing the results, NYLJ stated that “we only allowed legitimate end users (attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants etc.) to vote. We took great pains to ensure the voting was fair and that no vendors were ‘stuffing the ballot box.’ Any votes cast by non-legal professionals (or anyone who we could not validate was a legitimate end user) were disqualified.”

The 76(!) page Reader Rankings document is available here.  As you can imagine, with 100+ categories, they cover vendors for all types of legal needs.  As we’re an eDiscovery blog, it makes sense to be a bit more focused, so the categories that relate to electronic discovery and information governance start on page 44.  Here are the reader rankings for those categories:

Thanks to everybody who braved the pouring rain and stopped by for “Drinks with Doug” in San Antonio at ARMA yesterday!  A great time certainly appeared to be had by all, despite the fact that a few were soaked from the rain.  Great food and drinks and even better conversation!
