Mark Berman to Chair the New York State Bar Association’s New Committee on “Technology and the Legal Profession” which will examine the Impact of Technology on the Way Attorneys Practice, and Legal Services are Delivered

June 22, 2017 (New York, NY) – Mark Berman, attorney with Manhattan based law firm Ganfer & Shore, will chair a new committee created by the New York State Bar Association. The 19 member committee will examine the impact of technology— including artificial intelligence, e-discovery, data privacy and cybersecurity—on the way attorneys practice and legal services are delivered, now and in the future.

The mission of the new committee is to:

  • Identify ways attorneys can use technology to enhance their practice;

  • Assist attorneys in achieving “reasonable technological competence” in all areas of their practice;

  • Enhance protection of the public by developing and recommending regulations and best practices for legal service technology providers; and

  • Explore ways that new technologies might bridge the “justice gap” and provide better access to courts and legal service to individuals who cannot afford lawyers.

Mark Berman is a partner in Ganfer & Shore’s litigation practice group. He also heads the firm’s E-Discovery Counseling practice. He is the outgoing chair of the New York State Bar Association’s Commercial and Federal Litigation Section.

“I am honored to be chosen to chair this new committee as its platform will extend over all practice areas.  Technology is changing the face of the legal profession and this committee will lead that change in assisting both lawyers and the general public in dealing with our newly technologically-driven world.”
