One week from today, on April 28 at 1 p.m. Eastern, I will be moderating a free, one-hour webinar, Litigation Tool Tips: A Holistic Approach to Litigation Technology, presented by the American Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division.

The panel will feature the CEOs of three legal startups — Allegory, Casetext and PacerPro — discussing how litigators can use different litigation tools and technologies in ways that complement each other in order to be more effective and better advance the overall theme of a case.

Panelists will be:

  • Alma Asay, founder and CEO of Allegory, a cloud-based collaborative litigation platform used by many of the most prestigious law firms, corporations and government agencies in the United States. Before founding Allegory, Alma was a litigator at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. Alma is one of the first and only female BigLaw lawyers to found a legal technology startup. She was recently named to the Fastcase 50 and by the ABA’s Legal Technology Resource Center as one of 50 “Women of Legal Tech.”
  • Gavin McGrane, founder and CEO of PacerPro. A California litigator with seven years’ experience in complex litigation, Gavin founded PacerPro in 2011 to address key challenges in accessing and managing PACER data. Since launching to the public in 2014, PacerPro has been adopted by attorneys at all of the Am Law 100 firms. Enterprise clients include DLA Piper, Hughes Hubbard & Reed, Kramer Levin, Latham & Watkins, Morrison Foerster, Orrick, Quinn Emanuel, Reed Smith, Weil, Gotshal & Manges, and Susman Godfrey.
  • Jake Heller, founder and CEO of Casetext, a legal research and technology service that provides novel information solutions to litigation practices. As a student at Stanford Law School, Jake was president of the Stanford Law Review and a managing editor of the Stanford Law & Policy Review. After law school, he clerked for 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Michael Boudin and then became a litigation associate at Ropes & Gray. He’s been programming since he was nine and worked full-time as a web developer before law school.

One interesting feature of this webinar is that the moderator and all the panelists will also be presenting to a live audience in San Francisco.
