9:45 am - 10:15 am STRUCTURAL ISSUES FOR THE LAW FIRM MODEL: HOW TO ACCOMMODATE THE TYPE OF BUSINESS CHANGE THAT INNOVATION WILL DRIVE

Stuart Hopper - Head of Practice Development & Knowledge - EMEA Dentons
The legal industry is going through significant change, with increased regulation affecting businesses, clients demanding more for less, new entrants disrupting the market and technology affecting all areas of service delivery. To survive and thrive, law firms not only have to get better at understanding the real ‘client view’ on what consumers of legal services actually require from their  providers, but also identify and implementing better ways of organising themselves to service those requirements and respond to the innovation revolution. This session will throw out some thoughts and questions on this broad ranging topic.

10:15 am - 10:45 am ADDING VALUE THE SOLV WAY

Menno Weij - Partner Solv
Menno says: it is all about adding value to the client. Quality isn’t, that is a permission to play. That is why we split high end from low end. High end is focus SOLV, low end is focus VraagHugo (our platform) where use technology to serve that market. The current platform (creating your own customized agreements yourselves) is just the beginning. One of our goals is facilitating corporates with an internal platform with their own contracts to support both legal and sales.

11:15 am - 11:45 am CHANGES: TURN AND FACE THE STRANGE...

Joanne Frears - Solicitor Lionshead Law
With an obvious reference to a master of adaptation, Joanne Frears will look at the bigger picture of scoping AI and whether AI really will replace lawyers. She will consider:
 
  • What do you think AI is? From chatbots to AV via machine learning and the internet of things, AI is already all around us sifting big data, monitoring our health & habits and reforming our attitudes.
  • What does your firm want AI for? If you want it to read contracts you are probably missing the point. That’s a bit like discovering electricity and then only ever using it to animate the legs of dead frogs!
  • Just how much cleverer is AI than the combined IQ of your board? Yes, it’s cleverer than you, so are it’s slowest programmers. It probably has better social skills than your litigation department and undoubtedly a better line in questioning than your due diligence teams.
  • How do you go about spec’ing, procuring and maintaining a system that is faster, better, cleverer than your staff? So how are you going to imagine how it can be used? Planning and flexibility are key, so are clear parameters and operations.
  • Who will AI replace at your firm - here’s a clue, “Turn and face the strange, changes. there’s going to have to be a different man.”!
  • Does any of this matter when the clients’ interests come first?
  • Will lawyers only be left to deal with the Minority Report?

1:45 pm - 2:30 pm INTERACTIVE ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS

New for 2018, this series of interactive roundtable discussions will be designed by you, for you. Whilst we appreciate that presentations are a great source of information, we understand the value of discussion-based problem solving. With this in mind, you will select a key topic where you will join your peers to discuss challenges, develop a strategy and share your feedback with the audience. 

Each person will have the opportunity to select and discuss one of the below topics for 30 minutes, before people will be invited to share their thoughts collectively in the wrap-up summary session. Please note all attendees will be asked to provide their preferences prior to the conference to help manage numbers onsite and to avoid disappointment on the day! 

  • Table one: Where do you start and what processes need to be in place to enable the successful integration of AI and IA technologies? 
  • Table two: How can you accurately map ROI to convince stakeholders of the opportunities within artificial intelligence applications?
  • Table three: AI on a budget? Where can we see the greatest gains on the lowest investment? 
  • Table four: What’s next for AI and where should limitations and boundaries be set?
