WELCOME TO THE
INAUGURAL ISSUE OF
I’ve long had a vision of
creating a magazine that brings
together the thought leadership
of the incredibly talented and
dedicated professionals who
manage litigation — those working in-house, risk and insurance professionals,
outside counsel and the third parties providing valuable services. This magazine
does all that and more.
For all of you iPad, tablet and smartphone toting professionals, Litigation
Management is also available in an electronic version. Simply go to the App
Store and search for “Litigation Management.” You can download our app for

Fitting for this inaugural issue,
our cover story explores how to
define litigation management
in today’s world. A simple “we
manage lawsuits” might seem
like the straight-forward answer,
but all of us in the industry
know it’s much more than that.
In the article and throughout
the magazine, we delve into
topics that explore specific claim types, trends in the industry, the impact of
worldwide events on our industry and take some time to get to know a few of
I want our magazine to
be a place to come for
industry insight, for
education and for articles
that make you think.

When I first developed the idea of creating this magazine, I knew very little about
magazine publishing. With a great deal of research, the assistance of some
industry experts and more than a little help from my friends and colleagues, my
vision is now a reality. Taking on this project is not unlike what many of you in the
industry did when you first started down your career path. Let’s face it, not many
kids focus on growing up to become involved with the litigation management
industry. But those of us who do choose this career path realize what an exciting
and dynamic field it is. Never a boring day and always plenty to do.
LitigationManagement is published
quarterly and covers news and topics
of interest to litigation management
professionals and the attorneys with
whom they work.
I want our magazine — and I say “our” because this magazine belongs not
just to those of us working to put it together, but to all of our readers and
advertisers — to be a place you come for industry insight, for education and
for articles that make you think. You’ll find that every article is co-authored and
developed with input from litigation managers and attorneys. This team effort
allows us bring together different perspectives on each topic.
