Welcome to the Strategic Technology Forum 2015:
The annual meeting place for legal technology leaders

10-12 June 2015
Penha Longa

I am delighted to announce that Strategic Technology Forum 2014 will be held near Rome in the beautiful Italian hillside retreat of the Grand Hotel Palazzo Della Fonte. The programme will build on the resounding success of our 2013 conference programme and will entrench the forum as the premier global gathering for CIOs, IT directors and law firm leaders.

The event is designed to explore the power of technology as an enabler for law firm innovation, best practice and efficiency. Now in its ninth year, the forum is extensively researched to offer unparalleled opportunities to discuss the strategic by-product of technology alongside the culture and business environment of the firm itself. The 2014 conference promises to marry leading speakers from legal and non-legal spheres with the most pressing strategic IT challenges and opportunities.

The forum will allow you to spend quality time with your peers in the idyllic Italian countryside whilst gaining business-critical ideas that will help you and your firm to prosper in the forthcoming year.


Key format highlights

  • Practical case studies woven throughout the programme
  • Gain new perspectives on your legal challenges from unique non-legal speakers
  • An extensive social programme to foster ‘off the record ideas exchange'
  • A return to a warmer climate in order to enable informal 'al fresco' networking

Topics in 2013 included:

  • Adopting a flexible approach to embracing new technology rather than a predictive one
  • Designing next generation business intelligence systems

  • ‘What if' scenario: designing an ideal cloud infrastructure and understanding how to get there
