With the topical theme of ‘Succeeding in the new legal landscape’, a new format and larger venue, the SOS User Group National Conference and AGM 2011 has already attracted a bumper number of delegates.

The 20th conference which takes place at the centrally located Belfry Hotel, will bring together the largest community of law firms united by their use of systems from Legal Futures Associate .

This year the format has been refreshed with a combination of plenary, roundtable and think-tank sessions. “Our goal is to enhance the sharing of knowledge and ideas and, by adopting the theme of ‘Succeeding in the new legal landscape’, we will explore how our member firms can stand out when alternative business structures (ABSs) enter the marketplace,” said user group chairman John Kay.

The conference will feature a keynote address – ‘ABS: the future is now’ – by Legal Futures Editor Neil Rose. As well as focusing on the key challenges and opportunities for firms once ABSs enter the market, other topics include: mergers and the IT aftermath; making better use of data for marketing; social media for law firms and software hosting. The full conference agenda can be found here.

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said he is looking forward to a lively and informative conference. “Judging by the early registrations, this could be the most widely attended user group conference to date,” he said. “The Legal Services Act is changing the legal landscape forever and our clients are keen to explore the central role that technology will play in helping them to compete and perform more effectively.

“This is a valuable learning and networking event for the SOS community with an agenda designed to be thought-provoking and relevant to the hot topics of this historic year.”
