Innovation is a much-used word in the legal market. Why? Yes, everyone wants to be seen to embrace it in their own way, but more exciting is the fact that the amount and variety of innovation grows every year.
What the Legal Futures Innovation Conference does is showcase the best and most interesting developments, hear from the pioneers, and provide delegates with ideas and motivation to take back to their own businesses.
This, our eighth Innovation Conference, will be no different and we are especially pleased that the Legal Services Board will use the event to unveil the findings of its Innovation in Legal Services report, the most comprehensive review yet published of what innovation in the legal market looks like and how it is developing.
In a new feature, this year’s conference will see Legal Futures Editor Neil Rose interview on stage two very different but both hugely successful and high-profile innovators about their achievements and how they see the future: Sir Nigel Knowles and Marilyn Stowe.
We will hear from a recently listed law firm and one that is happy no longer to be owned by a listed business, from the unregulated businesses that are making their mark in the legal world, and from a selection of the law firms that have caught our eye in the past year for being or doing something very different.
And we will also ask where all the women are – there are plenty of women pushing the boundaries too but their voices are not always heard. An expert panel will consider why this is.
