SAN FRANCISCO – June 5, 2015: Trial specialist firm Edlin Gallagher Huie + Blum (BEHB) was recognized by Legaltech News as a finalist for an Innovation Award in the category of Most Innovative Use of Technology in a Law Firm (less than 100 lawyers). BEHB’s nomination focused on the firm’s initiative to bring predictive coding in-house.
There are several aspects of this project that demonstrate the firm’s innovative thinking, willingness to take calculated risks, tenacity and unwavering efforts to deliver value to clients. It is also an example of BEHB’s ability to continually adapt to a changing legal services marketplace and attract clients from large multinational companies, no simple feat for a California-based complex litigation firm of 28 attorneys. The firm’s use of predictive coding for e-discovery in a recent high-stakes environmental case was a major factor in achieving a victory for the firm’s client, the City of Fort Bragg.

Innovation Award winners will be celebrated on July 14 at an event to be held at the City Club in San Francisco that will mark the close of Legaltech West.
