NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In its August 2014 cover story, ALM's Law Technology News provides an instructive look at how NexLP, an e-discovery startup company, captured the attention and support of venture capitalists.

"The success of NexLP at Techstars Chicago, a top business accelerator for startup companies, offers a possible roadmap for other legal technology companies in pursuit of VC money and support," said LTN Editor-in-Chief Monica Bay. "NexLP was one of 10 companies selected from 705 applicants for a three-month 'boot camp' and funding. We also explore how key law firms are supporting the program, helping both Techstars and the new companies."

On a similar theme, the new issue of LTN also includes a feature article – "Launch Pad" – that follows a four-year journey that brought two competitors together in order to develop and launch a new trial presentation tool.

The August 2014 issue of LTN is available online now at
