NEW YORK - Jan. 27, 2016 - PRLog -- On February 2, thousands of attorneys, judges, software companies, startups, business leaders, technology enthusiasts, and others who are associated in one way or another with law, technology, and the use of technology in legal practice will convene at the New York Hilton Midtown for the annual LegalTech trade show. The show touts itself as “the most important legal technology event of the year.” Lasting three days, through February 4, LegalTech is one of the largest annual projects of ALM (formerly American Lawyer Media), a New York-based provider of specialized business information to companies throughout the world, and the event organizer.

One new startup technology company that is anxious to gain exposure from LegalTech 2016 is Concord, a quickly-growing software company based in San Francisco whose contract management platform ( aims to “[change] the way people create, sign, and file contracts”. Concord’s CEO, Matt Lhoumeau, is scheduled to present at one of the show’s “Legal Disruption Lighting Rounds” in a Shark Tank style session where he, alongside other “legal technology disruptors”, will explain how his company makes life easier for attorneys and others involved with legal aspects of business.

Describing his perspective on LegalTech and the opportunity to present at the show, Lhoumeau explained, “I’m looking forward to presenting the Concord platform at LegalTech. We’ve spent years working to perfect our contract management system. Now that we’re ready to significantly expand our user base, having the chance to explain our product and receive feedback from CodeX and other legal technology experts will benefit us by means of the exposure of our product to that community. Also, the critical evaluation we expect to receive from seasoned experts there will provide welcomed feedback for future versions of our software.”

The 2016 LegalTech show will be similar to previous shows in its focus and scope, but this year’s show will also have its own unique reasons for participating. Henry Decker, VP of Global Events for ALM, described what can be expected at this year’s show:  “We love to open LegalTech with subject matters that speaks to the entire legal community, whether it covers national security concerns as with speakers from homeland or the FBI, general counsel or in this case the incredible human capital that sits on the bench.”

Tracks at this year’s LegalTech conference include:

• Information Governance and Big Data
• Disruptive eDiscovery and Data Security Trends
• Advanced IT
• Governance, Risk and Compliance
• Corporate Counsel in the Electronic Information Age
• Change is Coming: Exploring the Now and the Near of Ediscovery and Legal Services
• Corporate Legal Operations

The show includes educational training sessions, networking events, and opportunities to be recognized by the legal and tech communities. The cost to attend LegalTech ranges from just under $1,000 for a one-person single day registration to over $8,000 for organizations who bring more than 26 attendees.

LegalTech ultimately provides one of the largest forums available for startup companies like Concord, legal technology thought leaders, attorneys, judges, enthusiasts, and others to associate and coordinate in a way that moves the entire law industry forward.
