Recognized for “Shaking Up the Content industry”

Washington, DC (November 29, 2011) – Legal publisher Fastcase has been named to the prestigious EContent 100 list of leading digital publishing and media companies. This is the second year in a row that Fastcase has received the prestigious award.

Recipients were selected based on their leadership in digital content industry. Fellow EContent 100 award recipients include
Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon, as well as legal publishers Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, and Reed Elsevier. The complete list of the 2011-2012 EContent 100 recipients are available in the December issue of EContent Magazine and online at http://www.econtentmag.com/articles/editorial/feature/the-100-top-companies-in-the-digital-content-industry-the-2011-2012-econtent-100-79073.htm.

“In digital publishing, you’re either disrupting, or being disrupted,” said Ed Walters, CEO of Fastcase. “For more than a decade, we’ve been moving the legal publishing industry from a “mere access” market to a service industry characterized by nimble innovation – from an economy of scarcity to a competitive economy of abundance. We’re very grateful that EContent Magazine recognizes that.”

Others are taking note of Fastcase and increasingly showing appreciation for the company’s innovativeness, attentiveness, and thought leadership. Fastcase was recently ranked #1 on Law Technology News’s first Customer Satisfaction Survey, winning the 2010 American Association of Law Libraries New Product of the Year Award, and recognized as the leader in mobile apps by the 2011 ABA Legal Technology Survey.

Fastcase has more than 500,000 subscribers from around the world, and is one of the fastest growing companies in legal publishing.

“There are plenty of changes afoot on this year’s list, as well as at the magazine,” said Theresa Cramer, Editor of EContent. As you read through these pages, you’ll notice a change in the EContent 100 categories—and a subsequent change in the companies we’re honoring this year. As we focused less on enterprise content companies and more on the world of digital publishing and media, the judges had to reimagine the list—and relearn the judging process. While many of the old stand-bys still made it onto this year’s list, there are plenty of fresh faces as well—many of which are shaking up the content industry.”
