Thank you for attending STF 2017 at the spectacular Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromees Lake Maggiore, Italy on 7-9 June 2017.

Changing the way we create and deliver the product

The plethora of highly effective technology on offer to the modern law firm is better than it has ever been, but this does not mean that true innovation, enhanced product delivery and efficient processes are a given.

Much has been covered about the traditional law firm model and the constraints of ‘people’ on the process of innovation, but how do we address this? In the near-term, law firms will continue to be extremely profitable and cash-rich businesses, but the pace of market erosion will become apparent for those firms that are not nimble enough to embrace change and act on it in the medium to long-term.

This forum is evolving with the legal profession, and is not just for CIOs.

Strategic Technology Forum 2017 will unite senior level stakeholders in the application of legal technology across the world’s most respected firms. It recognises that Technology has permeated its way through the organisation to an extent that it is no longer a siloed sub-section. For technology to enable future innovation, lawyers and support staff must have input and be close the heart of implementation.
