Geoffrey Vance was mentioned in the October 2003 issue of Chicago Lawyer in regard to speaking at the annual LegalTech show. Mr. Vance stated companies and their lawyers can be sanctioned if a client isn’t on the ball in keeping relevant documents from being depleted by its backup system. "You have to go to your client’s IT department and literally cross examine them on the systems. Don’t take their word for it, they might be naïve, and lazy or not know everything about their systems," he said. "More and more IT people are being put before juries in cases. But as a lawyer you need to know the technology yourself."
