The Posse List, a leading contract lawyers and EDD, conducted a series of interviews of leading e-discovery professionals in January and February 2010. An interview with Ron Friedmann of Integreon; the legal paradigm shift, predictive coding, document categorization, and more was published 29 January 2010. Reproduced with the permission of the Posse List.
This interview is part of our new series “Data! Data! Data!” — Cures for a General Counsel’s ESI Nightmares”. For our introduction to the series click here.
Ron Friedmann is Senior Vice President of Marketing for Integreon. He is a leading authority on practice support for lawyers. Ron managed practice support at then Wilmer Cutler (now WilmerHale), was CIO at Mintz, worked for two legal software companies, and ran Prism Legal Consulting. He is a Trustee of the College of Law Practice Management and on the Board of Governors of the Organization of Legal
Professionals. Ron has a JD from NYU and BA from Oberlin College.
Integreon is well known for its e-discovery, managed document review, legal process outsourcing (LPO), research and knowledge support, and middle office business services for law firms, corporations, and financial institutions. Beyond marketing, Ron helps law firms and law departments improve efficiency and effectiveness
using Integreon services.
But it is through his blog, Strategic Legal Technology, that Ron is best known. Ron has blogged since 2003; in 2009, the ABA Journal selected his blog for its Blawg 100, the ABA’s annual list of the best of the blawgosphere. The choice was a good one: Ron is as insightful as he is prolific. His blog is widely read because Ron writes with two decades of experience at the intersection of law practice, law business, outsourcing, e-discovery, knowledge management, and technology.
We caught up with Ron at The Masters Conference and then at his D.C. area office.
