Legal Rebels Interview: How John Tredennick Helped Blaze the Trail of Legal Technology

Catalyst_Legal_Rebels_John_TredennickAs a partner at a large, national firm in the late 1980s, John Tredennick saw the importance of legal technology and urged his firm to appoint him to lead the firm’s technology initiatives. They agreed, making him technology partner and possibly the first chief information officer at a large firm.

The litigation technology he helped develop there formed the foundation of the company he later founded, Catalyst, where he is now CEO.

In recognition of Tredennick’s pioneering work in legal technology, the ABA Journal recently named him a Legal Rebels Trailblazer. In a Legal Rebels podcast released this week, ABA Journal senior writer Stephanie Francis Ward interviews Tredennick about his early work in legal technology, his advice for young lawyers interested in e-discovery, and significant trends in e-discovery.

You can listen to the interview below or read more about it at the ABA Journal.
