John Tredennick
Catalyst Repository Systems

Over the past 30 years, John Tredennick has spoken before more national and international audiences on legal and technology issues than he or anyone else can remember. He has written and edited five best-selling books and countless articles on litigation and technology issues. He was named one of the "Top 100 Global Technology Leaders" by London's CityTech magazine and to the 2012 FastCase 50, which recognizes 50 of the smartest, most courageous innovators, techies, visionaries and leaders in the law. He served as a member of the Short Course Faculty at the University of Virginia Law School, where he taught the course, "Electronic Discovery in a Global Environment." John began his career as a trial lawyer and litigation partner with one of the largest law firms in the Rocky Mountains. He got interested in technology in the late 1980s, and working with a team of technologists, he began building software to help his 10-office firm manage complex litigation. In 1995, John became the firm's chief information officer (CIO), the first in the country for a major law firm. He also continued his full-time practice as a trial lawyer and litigation partner. His passion for finding ways to use technology to improve law practice led the firm to international prominence as a technology pioneer. It also led to a 1999 induction into the Smithsonian Institute Archives as an Information Innovation Pioneer.
