Thompson Hine arms all Practice Support staff with Litigation Support Reference to guide their development of Best Practices.

Thompson Hine, has purchased copies of Mark Lieb's book, Litigation Support Department, for all Litigation Support staff.

Deena Coffman, Associate Director of Legal Business Technology said, "Basically, we're using your text to educate everyone uniformly so that our group has a consistent base of knowledge upon which to draw as we then form our own best practices. We don't expect any best practices tool to be a one-size-fits-all solution, but we are happy to have a guideline as we as a team collaborate to find our optimal process."

Firms are investing in their litigation support staff. The book provides a complete education on both case and department operations.

Pamela Fontaine-Peters, Sr. Manager of Litigation Technology, Gowlings LLP, said "I am enjoying your book immensely. It is definitely a "must have" for every litigation support department. What a fantastic reference tool with such valuable and relevant precedents. This is most intelligent and useful resource I've encountered in my many years in the litigation support industry.

"My volume is already highlighted, and post-it noted and bookmarked.. you'd think I'd had it for years!"

Meg Griggs, Litigation Support Specialist at Wiggin and Dana agrees.

"Mark Lieb's Litigation Support Department book has been an invaluable resource within our firm. From practical advice relating to evolving best practices in the litigation support area I have been able to implement standards for the firm in order to best serve clients. The book has a special spot on my desk," Griggs said.

Litigators, paralegals and IT professionals are using the book to better educate themselves on best practices through a proven template. Corporate law departments are also investing in the book in an effort to be better educated consumers. No one would hire a lawyer who didn't use email, but may unknowingly use one who either has no technology plan or has not updated it for years.

Through use of the book, the Department will...

  • Provide consistent products and services to firm and third parties.
  • Be operated by people with the lowest possible level of skill.
  • Stand out as a place of impeccable order and organization.
  • Increase the speed of collection, review and production.
  • Increase the number of client-matters it can handle concurrently.
  • Decrease vendor costs to the client.
  • Increase revenues for the firm.
  • Organize the entire department not just individual cases.
  • Establish prequalified vendors.

Law departments are also buying the book as a way to help with document retention and compliance issues as well as stay educated about the goods and services they are buying.
