CLEVELAND, April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Litigation Management, Inc. (LMI), the industry leader in providing comprehensive analysis and medical information management services for the defense of product liability litigation, is celebrating 30 years of successfully meeting and exceeding client needs in an evolving legal industry.
Founding the company in 1984, CEO Elizabeth B. Juliano created an entirely new "service" category in the legal industry. "There was a need for a specialized medical records management function," she says. Juliano, in the early 1980s, was working as a paralegal for several attorneys defending asbestos litigation cases. "I found that focusing on managing the medical aspects of the litigation allowed the attorneys to focus their time on legal strategy," she adds. The creation of LMI gave birth to the ever-changing medical information management industry of today.
Opportunity came to LMI in 1992 when Juliano won the bid to manage all of the medical records affiliated with the thousands of cases across the country against Dow Corning and the company's silicone breast implants. Managing its first national mass tort project provided LMI and Juliano the opportunity for a valuable insight: though both are focused on the same litigation, the information requirements of defense counsel and in house counsel can be very different. LMI relies on this same insight and experience in managing current projects.
Today, LMI remains a privately owned business, with Sonya S. Virant serving as President and Chief Operating Officer. Through advanced technologies, LMI continues to specialize in medical information management for litigation, and has honed several service offerings, such as Early Case Analysis and Project Management services, that reflect the current needs of the legal industry.
Looking back on the past 30 years of owning the company, Juliano said: "When I try to reflect on 30 years all at once, what comes up are thousands of mental snap shots of people, places, and events, along with joy, anxiety, elation, and determination. The strongest emotion I feel is gratitude, to our clients who have provided us with tremendous opportunities and to the many friends and family members who support us all."
