Rob Mattern says, “We are honored to actively participate in the 2017 ALA Annual Conference & Expo. Last year brought many new challenges to firms nationwide: flat domestic demand, increase in client pushback, understanding new litigation support offerings, and a growing global market. For firms to successfully face these challenges head on it is vital they gain the knowledge in recovering costs and creating a more efficient workflow. We are more than happy to provide these insights and solutions.
