Celebrating 30 Years in Legal Technology, Chelsea Office Systems Hosts Expert Panel on Efficiency at LegalTech New York ’14 CIO Forum

New York City – February 4, 2014 – At LegalTech New York 2014 this week, New York-based Chelsea Office Systems, Inc. celebrates 30 years in legal technology consulting, and the company’s founder and president Roberta Gelb will be moderating a distinguished panel at LegalTech’s CIO Forum tomorrow – Wednesday, February 5th
Entitled “Why Does it Cost $800,000 to Edit a Document?”, the CIO panel was inspired by Ms. Gelb’s classic Law.com article “Beware the Hidden Costs of Document Formatting” which has become the “bible” for law firms and their trainers to justify use of technology rather than traditional manual document formatting methods. The CIO Forum discussion will address how
corporate counsel is pushing for new efficiencies and how law firms are addressing those demands by deploying software for document production, contact management and attorney timekeeping.

Panelists joining Ms. Gelb include Daniel Martin Katz, Associate Professor of Law at Michigan State University College of Law and Co-Director of ReInvent: Law, Eugene P. Stein, Director of Information Technology at Choate Hall & Stewart LLP, and Sam Shipley, Chief Information and Operating Officer at Cole Valley Software.

Each panelist and Ms. Gelb herself will bring longstanding expertise to the discussion. CIO attendees both on the inside and outside counsel sides of the table will benefit from the knowledge provided. Discussion will include the Suffolk-Flaherty Audit, an innovative technology audit developed in partnership with Casey Flaherty and Suffolk University Law School’s Institute on Law Practice Technology and Innovation to test the efficiency of outside counsel.

Roberta Gelb remarks, “Our LegalTech New York CIO Forum session is tailored for legal IT professionals dedicated to delivering efficiency through technology. Thirty years ago, I founded Chelsea Office Systems, Inc. with a mission to develop the most efficient methods for document production by bringing together workflow methods, software and training for the legal
industry. This is still our focus today. We pride ourselves on providing highly customized and  personalized consulting for each client in the areas of workflow, contact management, document management and document production.”
