    Smart Collaboration: How Lawyers Add Value by Breaking Down Silos

    Collaboration isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a business necessity. As the legal, technological, trade, and regulatory environments change ever faster, lawyers need to team up with other kinds of experts across disciplinary, geographic, and organizational boundaries to tackle today’s complex problems. The payout for “smart collaboration” is significant: in-house and external legal teams add greater value, accomplish work more efficiently, innovate faster and better, and attract and retain higher-caliber talent.

    Yet, collaborating across silos is often messy, risky, and costly. So unless professionals know why they’re collaborating, it may not be smart. True frontrunners quantify the upside, use behavioral change techniques to drive implementation, and hold people accountable for results. Grounded in a decade of Dr. Gardner’s empirical research, this session features new data-driven research, case studies, interviews, and practical advice.

    The changing business landscape for legal: what you need to know and how you can find it

    Where does the money come from? If someone asked you that at your organization, how would you answer it? What is happening in the legal business landscape that will affect profitability?

    In this session, Joy Heath Rush will explore these questions and discuss the general business trends impacting the practice as well as techniques for keeping abreast of these trends.

    The Uberization of law is coming. Are you ready for “Lawber”?

    As virtual marketplaces for legal services begin to take root, how can law firms future-proof themselves to compete in a world where expertise and pricing are transparent and easily compared by clients?

    Drawing parallels to other industries that went through digital transformation, Oz will discuss what changes are expected to the way clients will buy legal services (the business of law) and what changes law firms will have to make to the way they work (the practice of law).

    Culture as differentiator: we need a radical overhaul in the way we work

    With new technology, increased competition and rapid market changes, the success of organisations in continually re-inventing themselves is now less focused on following a clear strategic plan and more on building a rich, engaging purpose. The better the culture the more agile and resilient the business will be, and a key aspect to this is an organisation’s ability to adapt and search for innovation. However, innovation for the sake of it, will not work. Jenny Jones discusses what is needed to help people to do their jobs better, deliver new technology successfully, and improve the customer experience.

    Lunch Break

    Enjoy the extensive lunch buffet while catching up with old friends and making new ones! Explore the innovative solutions and services offered by the Lexpo'19 sponsors.

    Five sponsors will organise a 30-minute lunch seminar between 13:15 and 13:45 (third floor). Registration is not necessary, but seats are limited. The sessions:

    1. Formpipe - Long term Data preservation for legal businesses (Ben Saxton)

    Long term Data preservation for legal businesses (Presenter: Ben Saxton)

    As legal businesses mature they will create legacy systems no longer in day to day use but maintained purely to retain access to the documents and data within them. Changes in technology, company growth and many other factors create the need to retire old systems but access to data remains due to internal reasons, customer access or regulatory requirements.
    The important thing is to preserve the critical data from these systems for the long term.
    Instead of considering this challenge an obstacle, you can use it as an opportunity to create efficiency in your business.

    During this session we will look at important issues:

    • Migrating documents and data from legacy systems to a preservation platform in order to retire the legacy systems
    • Enable easy search and retrieval of data and documents
    • Set up efficient long-term document storage in line with best preservation practice

    We look forward to a great discussion and introducing efficiency and compliance whilst reducing costs.

    2. Bizzomate - Let’s face it, certain parts of legal services should be automated (Andrea Miskolczi)

    Let’s face it, certain parts of legal services should be automated (Presenter: Andrea Miskolczi)

    Looking through the lens of a client, partner and lawyer, Andrea will share how Wolf Theiss creates expert systems to automate processes and procedures, in order to improve efficiency and create innovative client solutions.

    The Berkeley Publisher platform is a low-code development platform that enables domain experts to model their specialist knowledge using decision trees in order to support document production, to create client facing self-help portals and management systems.

    3. Aderant - What can a mobile lawyer do with Aderant Expert? (Ian Emery)

    What can a mobile lawyer do with Aderant Expert? (Presenter: to be announced)

    With mobile devices and tablets becoming prevalent, lawyers at Aderant Expert firms can stay connected to their business. Focused entirely on mobility, this session will provide live examples of the benefits gained from using the latest Expert applications.

    With increased mobility supported by the latest technology, Expert users can now respond to client queries, monitor WIP and debt positions, identify and action alerts, approve or initiate tasks to avoid delays, review or edit bills, and access important matter documents. Why not compare your firm to an Aderant firm?

    4. Tikit - Migrating from your on-premises DMS (Colin McArdle and Mike Kaye)

    Migrating from your on-premises DMS (Presenters: Colin McArdle and Mike Kaye)

    There are many benefits to moving your document management function away from an on-premises system to a cloud based service. The advantages are financial, operational and practical.

    The decision making process, though, cannot be taken lightly as considerations of security, regulatory compliance and availability must be taken into account. In this session the Tikit team will highlight key questions that should be asked when making the decision to move your documents into the cloud as well as methods for evaluation of competing systems.

    5. Iridium Technology - Law Firm Profitability: insights from a global market perspective (Tom Jones)

    Law Firm Profitability: Insights from a global market perspective (Presenter: Tom Jones)

    This session will provide the latest insights and business drivers in law firm profitability analysis and reporting with the global legal market. The content will be based on a recent study undertaken as a collaboration between Iridium Technology and LawVision. The briefing will be led by Tom Jones CEO at Iridium Technology. Iridium provides business intelligence and profitability solutions for law firms in the US, APAC, and UK/EMEA. The firms cover all sizes, from single-office to multi-national. This session will highlight the current trends and upcoming developments for profitability analysis and reporting by firms around the world. The session will include numerous "mini case studies" to show how the trends are being applied by firms.

See how he can get to your users in environments over which you have no control. With encouragement and supervision from his father, Marcus will show you how easy it actually is and what you should NOT be doing. Marcus will be presenting actual results of hacking websites, public WiFi, recycling bins and other places where you wouldn't want him to find your users’ or your data, as well as demonstrating live various vulnerabilities.

    Valuation

    Earning trust to deliver value

    Clients don’t feel they’re getting value and law firms don’t understand how to put this right. We look at the other side of the equation from price, at service delivery, relationship management and how to add value.

    Our data shows that clients don’t feel they’re getting great value. Why not? This session will look at what firms need to do to change the paradigm and increase perceptions of value for money through better service, relationship management and general effectiveness.

    We will look at:

    • How to measure service and why all law firms look remarkably similar;
    • Which facets of service delivery are actually most important to clients (as opposed to what firms think are most important);
    • Why maxing out on the fee revenue doesn’t necessarily provide the highest profit option;
    • Why clients feel they’re not being shown the love;
    • Why so-called ‘value adds’ don’t actually add the value clients are looking for;
    • … And why trust really is the final frontier.

    They Aren’t Buying What We’re Selling!

    How innovative legal pricing technologies, behavioral economics and powerful pricing psychology create a winning law firm.

    When it comes to pricing and in particular our reaction to price, Homo sapiens is not always Homo economicus, the paragon of cold-blooded rationality assumed by many formal economic models.

    As buyers, we are all 'predictably irrational'. Why do many prices end with a '9'? Why do we still have a headache after taking an aspirin costing 1p but the headache clears up after taking an aspirin that cost 50p? (New England Journal of Medicine, July 11, 2002)

    Understanding even a little of how clients 'process' pricing can provide valuable insights. We will devote a light touch to a few of the concepts including...

    • Price-anchoring
    • Price relativity & context
    • 'Deal effect'
    • 'Goldilocks' pricing
    • Precise v imprecise (pricing and discounting)
    • Unbundling & the ‘de minimus’ effect
    • Decoy pricing

    Using CRM to Enable Smart Collaboration

    We tend to over complicate it, but collaboration is simply the act of working with someone to produce or create. We collaborate in many aspects of our lives but when it comes to finding the best approach to fostering collaboration across marketing, IT and firm leadership, we often fall short.

    Whether your next project is a large-scale firm-wide initiative or a specific client campaign, you — and your firm — will be more successful if everyone works cohesively. When teams collaborate, they break down silos and use each other’s expert knowledge to serve clients better with coherent, unified and repeatable solutions.

    In this session, we will showcase how LexisNexis InterAction, the market-leading client relationship management (CRM) solution purpose built for law firms, is continuously innovating to deliver a portfolio that enables smart collaboration within your firm by embedding CRM in the daily lives of your Fee Earners.

    Legal Tech Disruption – What’s the point?

    In an industry that’s billed by the hour, is the epitome of regulation and legalisation, and known for the asymmetric nature of information between lawyers and their clients; it could be forgiven for resisting ‘disruption’ for its own protection and self-preservation. We’ve since introduced Alternative Fee Arrangements (AFAs), Alternative Business Structures (ABS), transparency as an economic ‘added value’, and technology – more specifically ‘LegalTech’ – being a key driver in disruption from a client, Law School, Corporate Legal Department and Law Firm perspective.

    Who is in control of the disruption? Is it just LegalTech that matters in a competitive market? And what’s around the corner?

    European Director Christiane Muller-Haye explains her views.

    During this session we will look at important issues:

    • Migrating documents and data from legacy systems to a preservation platform in order to retire the legacy systems
    • Enable easy search and retrieval of data and documents
    • Set up efficient long-term document storage in line with best preservation practice

    There are many benefits to moving your document management function away from an on-premises system to a cloud based service. The advantages are financial, operational and practical.

    Please note that each round table has room for 12 guests (including moderator), so seats are limited. Law firm & in-house legal staff have priority in participating. Registration for a round table session is required and can be done using our event app.

    1 - AI Wish List (Moderator: Tony McKenna)

    We use AI to refer to a series of technologies, including natural language processing, machine learning, and chat bots. Are those technologies enough? Are today's AI tools truly addressing the needs of the law practice? In this session, we will discuss our wish list for AI, including tools of today and tools we would like to see.

    2 - Document Automation: Evolution or Revolution (Moderator: Joy Heath Rush)

    Document automation has been part of the practice of year for 30 years. However, we continue to suffer from poor adoption of such tools. Lawyers still seem to prefer cut and paste or copy and revise. Is this because the tools haven't evolved sufficiently or is it time for a revolution?

    3 - Cybersecurity - Zero Trust Cyber Security (Moderator: Martin Ward)

    Trust is the most dangerous vulnerability facing Law Firms because it is the only vulnerability that is also its own exploit. As Law firms face growing pressures from multiple sources how do we build an effective cyber security risk posture and avoid falling victim to attack?

    4 - Barriers to user adoption of digital technology in legal sector (Moderator: Andrew Birch)

    Despite the proliferation of digital technologies in the marketplace, legal professionals are often reluctant to adopt them. These solutions often promise an increase in productivity, security, revenue and IT professionals are eager to implement them across their businesses. So why do they lack buy-in from the legal teams? What is the driver behind this trend? Find out in this session and hear from both users and providers.

    Luminance Case Study Presentation

    CEO of Luminance, Emily Foges, sits down with White & Case’s Chief Knowledge Officer, Oz Benamram, to discuss how far the legal industry has progressed when it comes to adopting technology. The past year has heralded a shift in attitudes from widespread scepticism towards artificial intelligence to, more recently, a focus on how best to implement it for the benefit of your firm and clients. This raises a question: are tech solutions still a way for law firms and in-house legal teams to ‘stay ahead’ or more of a necessity to keep up? Drawing on White & Case’s experience of adopting Luminance’s document review platform, Oz will disclose the impact of this technology on how the firm’s lawyers operate, from junior right through to Partner level. Another interesting consideration here is clients: why should they care whether their advisors are adopting technology? These themes and more will be explored in this dynamic discussion.

    Adopting Zero: AI-powered Email Management for NetDocuments

    Efficient information management is crucial to winning cases and bedrock to client relationships. Email management in particular has several pernicious aspects, especially for in-demand lawyers. These range from the disruptive administrative effort of filing emails in NetDocuments DMS to the time leakage occurring due to technology not built for mobile. More importantly the ability of a large team to rapidly capture and interrogate information can evolve a boutique into a legal power-house. Both aspects are now solved with Zero. Join us as we discuss how Zero’s artificial intelligence drastically reduces administrative effort and automates time capture to empower legal warriors to conquer their opposition.

    The End of Scale as Competitive Advantage for Law Firms?

    Over the past five years, a new global legal technology sector has exploded onto the scene, taking on great swathes of “lawyer work” and doing it better, faster and cheaper with technology alone or by a combination of people and technology. This is good news for consumers of legal services and - and bad news for lawyers. The 2020’s will be a decade in which job creation in the legal services sector will favour those who did not invest in a law school education. Focus is on tech to allow clients to do work, and on tech that allows people who didn’t go to law school to do higher value work. This will inevitably result in lawyers being to law firms what pilots are to airlines – a highly skilled and valuable piece of the puzzle, but not the entire puzzle.

    ROI: Return on Innovation

    While the term “innovation” has become a buzzword in the legal industry, it has also become an area that many firms have shifted their focus toward. In many ways, investing in innovative solutions will help drive the future of legal service delivery for law firms and legal departments in various functions such as contract management, e-discovery, alternative fees pricing and more. At large, any organization in any industry uses business intelligence to implement the best tools and practices that will improve their bottom line.

    What sets law firms apart from other industries is the gap between understanding what their pain points are and creating an innovative solution that can be executed to optimize their efficiency and performance. Through creating a strategic plan for execution that is paired with innovation and business intelligence, firms will be able to understand where they have become inefficient and ultimately enable themselves to have a comparative advantage over their competition. In doing so, the legal community will be able to experience not only a return on their investment, but a return on innovation.

    Five sponsors will organise a 30-minute lunch seminar between 13:15 and 13:45 (third floor). Registration is not necessary, but seats are limited. The sessions:

    1. Formpipe - Bring order and structure to Microsoft 365 and Teams (Staffan Hugemark)

    Bring order and structure to Microsoft Office 365 and Teams (Presenter: Staffan Hugemark)

    Contentworker, that has helped many law firms and corporate legal departments to get focus on the matters, is now available completely cloud based for Office 365. Contentworker Online helps you to get control of structures in SharePoint Online sites and Teams in Office 365. It automatically assigns metadata to documents to allow for better searching and it makes it easier to access matters and content from Windows applications such as Office and Outlook. On this session we will show you how you can get control of your existing Office 365 and use it both internally and to share content with external parties. Completely cloud based!

    2. Bizzomate - Let’s face it, using artificial intelligence in the due diligence process can be an unruly matter (Joppe van Gisbergen)

    Let’s face it, using artificial intelligence in the due diligence process can be an unruly matter (Presenter: Joppe van Gisbergen)

    During this presentation the Bizzomate team will show how you can transform the document review process, by combining machine learning (iManage RAVN), and decision trees (Expert models from Berkeley Bridge) to square the circle and make smart lawyers even faster.

    3. Aderant - Create your lawyer centric digital workspace (Ian Emery)

    Create Your Lawyer Centric Digital Workspace (Presenter: to be announced)

    With the pace of decision-making accelerating globally, not only is time a luxury, but the sheer amount of information available is growing exponentially as well. When all that content and information is stored in a variety of disparate systems, it becomes difficult to get what is needed, quickly. But what if you could harness all that information into an easy-to-use format and personalised to user preferences? In this session, you will learn how Aderant Handshake can transform your intranet into a key digital workplace that your lawyers and fee earners will love.

    4. Tikit - Let's go beyond time (Lloyd Ellison and Mike Kaye)

    Let’s go beyond time (Presenters: Lloyd Ellison and Mike Kaye)

    Tikit plans to go beyond the usual dry discussion of time entry software. Instead we will conduct an examination of how the right time management solutions contribute to firm competitiveness and profitability in ways that go beyond the obvious.

    This eye-opening session will interrogate:

    • How timekeeping can assist with compliance with Outside Counsel Guidelines
    • The importance of being able to effectively schedule workload
    • Time recording as a relationship management tool
    • The impact of good timekeeping software on firm revenue is well-rehearsed. We know that with the right system and high adoption rates, leading-edge solutions can boost billings by 25%.

    In this session we will be going beyond the mechanics of time capture to explore the other strategic contributions and opportunities that great timekeeping can provide.

    5. Iridium Technology - Improve your approach to pricing with Iridium (Fraser Mayfield)

    Improve your approach to Pricing with Iridium BI (Fraser Mayfield)

    Round Table Sessions

    (Chatham House Rules apply! These are the same round table sessions as the ones held yesterday.)

    Please note that each round table has room for 12 guests (including moderator), so seats are limited. Law firm & in-house legal staff have priority in participating. Registration for a round table session is required and can be done using our event app.

    1 - AI Wish List (Moderator: Tony McKenna)

    We use AI to refer to a series of technologies, including natural language processing, machine learning, and chat bots. Are those technologies enough? Are today's AI tools truly addressing the needs of the law practice? In this session, we will discuss our wish list for AI, including tools of today and tools we would like to see.

    2 - Document Automation: Evolution or Revolution (Moderator: Joy Heath Rush)

    Document automation has been part of the practice of year for 30 years. However, we continue to suffer from poor adoption of such tools. Lawyers still seem to prefer cut and paste or copy and revise. Is this because the tools haven't evolved sufficiently or is it time for a revolution?

    3 - Cybersecurity - Zero Trust Cyber Security (Moderator: Martin Ward)

    Trust is the most dangerous vulnerability facing Law Firms because it is the only vulnerability that is also its own exploit. As Law firms face growing pressures from multiple sources how do we build an effective cyber security risk posture and avoid falling victim to attack?

    4 - Barriers to user adoption of digital technology in legal sector (Moderator: Andrew Birch)

    Despite the proliferation of digital technologies in the marketplace, legal professionals are often reluctant to adopt them. These solutions often promise an increase in productivity, security, revenue and IT professionals are eager to implement them across their businesses. So why do they lack buy-in from the legal teams? What is the driver behind this trend? Find out in this session and hear from both users and providers.
