Day 2 of this year’s LegalTech New York is in full swing, from the keynote on spying to the plenary session on mitigating risk. For those following along from home or who haven’t had a chance to walk the exhibit hall, here are the most notable efforts I saw on day 1.
Here’s who earned the LTNY16 award for…
Most Athletic: TransPerfect
TransPerfect’s golf simulator is an effective way to shake off all that sitting in sessions. Though with how hard people were swinging, I did worry that the golf ball would burst out of the tarp.
Most Steampunk: ALM

Most Dangerous (for Coffee Drinkers): Thomson Reuters
This expansive white carpet is visually striking, inviting, and a boon for carpet cleaner sales. I suggest detouring around it if you’re carrying a cup of coffee and slightly groggy from last night’s festivities.
