2006 TechnoLawyer @ Awards: Final Results

By Sara Skiff | Thursday, June 1, 2006

Below you'll find the official results and complete list of winners and finalists for the 2006 TechnoLawyer @ Awards. Congratulations to all!

THE ONE @ AWARD YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ...

You voted for 23 of the 24 @ Awards, which means that one has remained a mystery.

Late last year, we published BlawgWorld 2006: Capital of Big Ideas, a wildly successful eBook with 32,604 downloads to date. BlawgWorld certainly achieved its mission of promoting legal blogs.

Many of the bloggers who participated in BlawgWorld helped us distribute the eBook. Thus, we created a new @ Award — Blawgger of the Year — for the blogger responsible for the largest number of downloads.

The winner? Two of them actually — Stephen Albainy-Jenei and Karlyn Schnapp who co-write Patent Baristas, an excellent blawg that covers big pharma patent news. When they're not blogging, Stephen and Karlyn both practice patent law at Frost Brown Todd LLC in Cincinnati.

If you don't yet have a copy of BlawgWorld, download it today.

THE @ AWARDS THAT YOU CHOSE ...

TechnoLawyer has always worked best when it lets a thousand flowers bloom (Ruth Laura Edlund refers to TechnoLawyer as a "collective mind"). The TechnoLawyer @ Awards certainly fits this model — set up a few basic rules and see what happens.

What typically happens is a display of customer loyalty. The winners and finalists tend to have happy customers willing to take the time to vote via e-mail.

Does market share play a role? Sure, but not as much as enthusiastic customers. Among this year's winners and finalists you will find large companies with mature products, startups with new products, and even large companies with new products.

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists! And thank you for voting!

Technolawyer @ Awards Gossip

By Neil J. Squillante | Thursday, May 18, 2006

I thought I'd share some TechnoLawyer @ Awards gossip:

• A fair number of people have voted for TechnoLawyer for Favorite Legal Web Site and Favorite Blawg. Thank you for your support notwithstanding our ineligibility!

• Dennis Kennedy has recused himself from the voted @ Awards since he authored the E-Discovery Cheat Sheet we're giving to all those who vote. Dennis bowed out of his own accord as we have not received any complaints. He remains eligible for Blawgger of the Year, a statistically-determined @ Award.

• One person submitted a ballot not to vote for a product, but to vote against it! Ha! Even better, here's another ballot we received: "I would be diluting the quality of the vote if I opined on any of these products or services." Here's another favorite of mine: "I am a new member and don't have a clue as to any of the answers."

• Here are some interesting statistics: 18% of voters leave their subject line blank. The most popular subject line is "TechnoLawyer @ Awards Ballot" (29%). Some of my favorite ballot subject lines: "Take My Vote, Please," "Voting: Hope I Did This Right," and "Terrible Way to Conduct a Survey"

Regarding that last subject line, I apologize for our retro voting method, but it does a really good job of preventing fraud. Voting ends on May 19th! Vote today and download your copy of the TechnoLawyer E-Discovery Cheat Sheet by Dennis Kennedy.

2005 TechnoLawyer @ Awards: Final Results

By Sara Skiff | Tuesday, June 21, 2005

Below you'll find the official results and complete list of winners and finalists for the 2005 TechnoLawyer @ Awards. Congratulations to all!  And thank you for voting!

The One @ Award that We Chose ...

You voted for 24 of the 25 @ Awards, so there is one you don't know about.

We have selected Bryan Sims as TechnoLawyer of the Year! Every year, we bestow this @ Award on a practicing lawyer who makes extensive use of technology in their practice, and who shares their expertise with the legal community at large. Bryan perfectly fits this description.

Bryan practices civil and appellate litigation at James, Gustafson and Thompson in Chicago. He is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association and the American Bar Association, and of course TechnoLawyer.

Since 1998, Bryan has contributed 26 Posts to TechnoLawyer, including classics such as "The Power of a Wireless Telephone in Modern Litigation Practice," "How I Communicate v. How I Want to Communicate," "How Lawyers Find Local Counsel in 2004," and just last week "Getting the Most Out of Stamps.com." Keep an eye out for Bryan's future Posts — they are always informative and well-written.

Congratulations Bryan!

The @ Awards that You Chose ...

If you think you already know the results thanks to our interim raw vote counts, guess again. Thanks to a ton of votes the last few days, several upsets occurred.

In reviewing the results below, please keep in mind that the TechnoLawyer @ Awards is not a popularity contest. It does not necessarily reflect market share or readership. Instead, the @ Awards reflects loyalty — people, products, services, blogs, and Web sites that have a very loyal following. Loyalty typically stems from excellence, which explains why so many law firms use the TechnoLawyer @ Awards as a buying guide.

2004 TechnoLawyer @ Awards: The Legal Profession's Version of the Oscars

By Corrine Brown | Monday, May 24, 2004

New York, New York -- May 24, 2004.

For Immediate Release.

Although it doesn't feature any fashion faux pas or a red carpet, the annual TechnoLawyer @ Awards is the closest the legal profession gets to an Oscar-like event.

With 26 different @ Awards handed out, the 2004 TechnoLawyer @ Awards was the biggest yet in the seven year history of this popular event.

The TechnoLawyer @ Awards is produced and managed by TechnoLawyer, a network of email newsletters for those who manage law firms.  TechnoLawyer is owned by PeerViews Inc., a New York City-based online marketing services company.

During the month of April, the 9,700+ members of TechnoLawyer voted for their favorite people, products, and services in 24 different categories.  TechnoLawyer's staff chose the winners of the remaining two @ Awards.

AND THE TECHNOLAWYER @ AWARD GOES TO ...

For the second consecutive year, CaseSoft, Time Matters Software, and LexisNexis were the big winners, each winning multiple @ Awards.

CaseSoft, a division of Bowne DecisionQuest, took home four @ Awards and also qualified as a Finalist in four categories.

Its flagship product, CaseMap, which enables lawyers to analyze the evidence of a case in a spreadsheet-like manner, won the @ Award for Favorite Litigation Support Solution.  Its sister product, TimeMap, which enables lawyers to create visual timelines, won the @ Award for Favorite Trial Presentation Solution.

"Over the years, many TechnoLawyer members have made CaseMap and TimeMap the heart of their case analysis process, which makes these reader's choice @ Awards especially gratifying," said Greg Krehel, CaseSoft's CEO.

Time Matters Software, which was recently acquired by LexisNexis, was the biggest winner by far with seven @ Awards, including Favorite Case/Practice Management Solution, Favorite Document Management Solution, and Favorite Time-Billing Solution.  Time Matters Software develops Time Matters and Billing matters, two integrated programs that enable lawyers to manage nearly every aspect of their practice, from billing to calendars to document creation.

For its part, LexisNexis, a large information services company well-known outside of the legal profession for its Nexis news database, racked up five victories, including the @ Awards for Favorite Document Assembly/Automation Solution, Favorite Electronic Discovery Solution, and Favorite Legal Research Tool.

LexisNexis' rival, Thomson-West, was also a multiple @ Awards winner.  It's WestCheck service won the @ Award for Favorite Microsoft Word Add-On, and its LegalEdCenter won the @ Award for Favorite Online CLE Provider.

Among the other winners, financial software giant Intuit won the @ Award for Favorite Accounting Solution for its QuickBooks product, and litigation software specialist RealLegal won the @ Award for Favorite Litigation ASP.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE

In addition to products and services, the TechnoLawyer @ Awards also recognizes the people who use and implement these products and services.

Yvonne Renfrew, a lawyer in California, won the @ Award for TechnoLawyer of the Year, a lifetime achievement award for lawyers who use technology to practice law more efficiently.  Despite the small size of her practice, Yvonne's law firm is as well-equipped as the largest firms in the country.

Another lifetime achievement award went to Larry Bodine, this one for Legal Technology Consultant of the Year.  Larry is one of the leading business development experts in the legal profession, having helped countless firms with their marketing plans.

The other individual winners were Mary Jo Webb for TechnoLawyer Contributor of the Year, and Arthur Smith for Dennis Kennedy Syndicated Contributor of the Year.

A WORLD UNKNOWN TO MOST

Americans have long enjoyed courtroom dramas on television and at the movies, but most don't have an understanding of the technology lawyers use to produce their day-to-day work.  The TechnoLawyer @ Awards pays tribute to this technology, and to the people who serve as a driving force for its proliferation.

"When depicted in shows like "The Practice" or even in most legal novels, lawyers rarely, if ever, sit in their office and crank out work product," said Neil Squillante, publisher of TechnoLawyer.  "Perhaps the publicity surrounding the TechnoLawyer @ Awards will help educate the public about the mundane but critical tasks that occur between the dramatic scenes, and the technology used to perform those tasks."
