OWINGS MILLS, MD — There have been a lot of change at Needles Case Management Software. In October, 2008, Bryan Billig, who is now the firm’s President and CEO, replaced the founder and previous CEO, Burt Bank. Mr. Bank, the founder of Needles, has been a long time mentor of Mr. Billig and the two have enjoyed a long business association. To assist in the transition period, Burt Bank has continued with the firm in a consultant capacity.

At the end of 2008, the company name, Chesapeake Interlink, Ltd was changed to Needles to reflect the new ownership. Business has been good and the firm has been growing consistently. To accommodate this growth, Needles has recently expanded its Owings Mills, MD headquarters so that they can offer a full service training facility and accommodate additional staff members and provide educational seminars. Needles now has expanded into a neighboring office, effectively doubling the office space.

The additional space will accommodate several new staff members as well as provide a state of the art training facility for client in-house trainings and seminars. The ability to add additional staff members allows Needles to hire additional programming staff to speed development and keep Needles on the cutting edge.

“We are making the investment now to accommodate increased demand for onsite training and educational seminars. This will allow us to provide an even higher level of service to our client law firms,” noted Bryan Billig, President of Needles Case Management Software.

Founded in 1984, as Chesapeake Interlink, Ltd., Needles Inc. became the first American company to develop a legal Case Management Software program. The firm’s core business is legal software, and there are over 1,700 installations, including conversions from other programs. Website at
