)-- Altep Inc., a leading provider of litigation support, e-discovery and document management services, today announced that Judy Torres, VP of Information Services, will participate in a panel discussion on the topic of Litigation Readiness at the Chicago Association of Litigation Support Managers’ conference. The meeting will take place October 7 at the Union League club in Chicago. Judy and the panel will explore the components of an effective litigation readiness plan, methods for identifying key contributors to the plan, effective execution of the plan, and a variety of other related subjects.
“Organizations like CALSM play a crucial role in the evolution of litigation support and data management. The techniques and ideas that members are exposed to help to define their approach to future challenges, and the standards that they set for vendors, consultants and service providers. The resulting trickle-down effect shapes the industry as a whole,” Torres remarked. “I’m always excited to be a part of this kind of discussion.”
The Chicago Association of Litigation Support Managers is an advocate for the development of litigation support management techniques, and a primary educational resource for members. CALSM seeks to further the understanding of litigation support technology and services, encourage the highest levels of professionalism and technical competence within the Membership, and provide a forum where members can exchange personal viewpoints and experiences relating to the profession of litigation support.
