Legatics Webinar: Firms of the Future: Adapting to Change – July 21

Transaction management pioneer, Legatics, will be holding a live webinar on Thursday, July 21 at 9.30AM (BST) – ‘Firms of the Future: Adapting to Change in the Law Industry’. Speakers will include: Isabel Parker, Shamus Rae, Richard Ashcroft, Joe Cohen, Ben Hunt and Anthony Seale. Artificial Lawyer’s founder, Richard Tromans, will chair the webinar.

In terms of what we’ll cover during the webinar, here’s how Legatics has framed things: ‘There’s no doubt that our day-to-day ways of working are changing fast and the law industry is no exception to this. We’ve recently explored how burnout and other challenges in the profession are driving changes. But what are the solutions?

‘Join us to look at what processes and tactics will help firms function in the 21st century. We’ll discuss possible barriers to adopting new technologies, how to overcome these, and how to develop a culture of change.

‘We’ll also look to other industries to see how they’ve adapted.

‘Gain key takeaways and a great chance to join lawyers, corporates and innovation specialists to learn about current topics and developments in the law profession and legal tech space.’

You can sign up for the webinar here.
