WASHINGTON, DC (July 10, 2014) – Legal publisher Fastcase today published the company’s annual list of “Fastcase 50” award recipients. The “Fastcase 50” award recognizes 50 of the smartest, most courageous innovators, techies, visionaries, and leaders in the law.

The Fastcase 50 highlights entrepreneurs, innovators, and trailblazers — people who have charted a new course for the delivery of legal services. In law firms with new delivery models, legal tech startups, and even inside some of the nation’s largest law firms and legal publishers, these pioneers are giving the world a first look at what’s next for law and technology.
“The Fastcase 50 is one of our company’s favorite events,” said Fastcase CEO Ed Walters. “There is a wonderful community of friends, past winners, bar partners, law librarians, and software developers who recommend their heroes for the award. Every year we’re inspired by the stories, and we especially enjoy celebrating some people who aren’t always in the limelight, but who are quietly transforming the law and legal services.”
It was hard to top the Fastcase 50 classes of 2011
, and 2013
— but with another record number of nominees, there were some great choices. Fastcase is happy to introduce the Fastcase 50 Class of 2014.
