Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 16, 2006
caseSHARE announced today that Chris Montgomery has joined the company’s expanding Professional Services Team as Vice President of Professional Services. Chris Montgomery is widely recognized as one of the leading experts on using technology in complex litigation and brings over a decade of experience advising large law firms, corporations and insurers with him to the caseSHARE team.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have Chris join our team,” said John Tredennick, caseSHARE’s CEO. “In the mid nineties while employed at Holland and Hart, Chris helped me develop the caseSHARE concept before he went on to lead litigation support at Heller Ehrman and then he found his own high-end litigation support technology company. Bringing him back to the caseSHARE fold is a great coup for caseSHARE’s clients and an affirmation of just how far the company has progressed over the past few years.”
“Chris Montgomery will lead our concept search and clustering efforts, working closely with our corporate and insurance clients as well as expanding relationships with large law firms,” explained TJ Gill, caseSHARE’s Vice President of Business Development. “He knows complex litigation from every angle and with that knowledge, he can help us take our Unified Repository and Integrated Case and Claim management platform to the next level.
Over his fourteen-year career, Chris played a lead role in creating Web-based litigation support and collaboration systems to manage worldwide litigation and corporate deals. He also participated in some of the largest trials in the United States, working closely with attorneys to effectively translate complex legal concepts into clear and effective electronic presentations in court. During those years, he developed and implemented global intranet programs and played a key role in the development of customized extranet portals that streamline the use of multiple systems into a single view.
During his tenure at Holland & Hart, the largest law firm in the Rocky Mountain region, Chris was instrumental in creating its in-house litigation support department. An early pioneer in the use of litigation technology, Holland and Hart was one of the first firms in the country to offer client extranets and Chris played a big part in developing and managing that technology.
Chris then went on to manage the litigation support capabilities of Heller Ehrman, based out of its San Francisco Headquarters. Heller Ehrman is one of the largest law firms in the country with 12 offices in 3 countries. While at Heller Ehrman Chris oversaw the implementation and expansion of many of the firm's innovative technology programs as well as developing a “Best Practices” program for litigation support.
In his most recent venture, Chris founded M2Technologies, a consultant firm focusing on the technological needs of law firms, corporate counsel, accounting firms and corporations. M2Technologies employed some of the top consulting talent in the country and worked with some of the largest law firms and corporate clients in the country.
Chris' extensive portfolio of experience provides him with both a big-picture understanding of the issues involved in using technology in litigation, and a ground-floor-up perspective of the complexities of establishing and successfully putting technology to work in complex cases and financial transactions.
