Event Overview

Strategic Technology Forum Europe is a truly exclusive and elite event. Set in the beautiful Lake Maggiore, the event will bring together senior members of the world's most respected firms, clients and legal service providers. Join leading European and US law firm CIO's, IT directors and innovation leaders to discuss how law firms can adapt, engage and stay ahead in an ever changing legal world.

This year the event will examine how technology has irrevocably changed the legal landscape with firms increasingly having to consider how best to deal with a rising tide of competition in services, talent acquisition and innovation.

2018's key topics of discussion will include:

  • How firms can defeat the competition to attract the best talent
  • How to adapt and engage with alternative providers taking a more significant position in the legal market
  • Gain a first-hand account from the client on their changing needs and expectations
  • Hear from the “geeks” on how to get the utmost from big data
  • Insight into the latest technology in the market
