Legal Headlines from the Post-Gazette

  • Firms beginning to take flat-fee model to e-discovery
    As many firms continue to grapple with how to manage their clients’ e-discovery needs, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney has used its analysis of years’ worth of discovery data to negotiate a flat rate with a managed services provider for the entire spectrum of e-discovery services.
  • American Bar Association gives lawyers OK to scan jurors' social media
    By now, most people know that anything posted on social media is subject to scrutiny by dates, parents, schools, employers and potential employers. Anecdotes abound of people who lost out on a job opportunity because of ill-advised spring break photos on Facebook or a tweet that lacked tact and sensitivity.
  • Allegheny County Bar Association names Creenan president
    James Creenan, newly elected president of the Allegheny County Bar Association, said he wants to strengthen the association’s Practice for Success program, which gives young lawyers needed job market skills.
  • Lawyers: Defendants concede too fast in data breach suits
    Plaintiffs are increasingly winning in the earlier stages of data breach litigation and defendants may be helping set unrealistic settlement figures out of a fear of going through discovery, attorneys on both sides of the issue agree.
  • Small firms learn to co-exist with online legal services
    As certain legal services have become increasingly commoditized by do-it-yourself websites like LegalZoom.com and RocketLawyer.com, some small and solo practitioners have wondered whether the phenomenon is just one more thing they must contend with in an already difficult market.
