2018 Strategic Technology Forum Europe

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

Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromees,
Lake Maggiore, Italy
20-22 June 2018

Legal Week is delighted to announce that this year's Strategic Technology Forum will once again take place at the spectacular Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromees, Lake Maggiore, Italy on 20-22 June 2018. 

Technology has irrevocably changed the legal landscape and firms are increasingly having to consider how best to deal with a rising tide of competition in services, talent acquisition and innovation. This years forum will bring together senior members of the worlds most respected firms, clients and data analysts to discuss how firms can adapt, engage and ultimately stay ahead in this new legal world.

2018's key topics of discussion will include how firms can defeat the competition to attract the best talent as well as how to adapt and engage with alternative providers taking a more significant place in the legal market. Delegates will get 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, and will gain an overview of the latest technology in the market.

We look forward to welcoming you in June.
