LEGAL REVOLUTION 2020 is cancelled


 

THE VIRTUAL EXHIBITION AND CONGRESS FOR LAW AND COMPLIANCE LEGAL LIVE WILL TAKE PLACE EARLIER

After three years of strong growth, all indications were that LEGAL REVOLUTION, Europe's leading exhibition and congress for law and compliance, would be a great success in 2020 again.

Since beginning of the COVID 19 Pandemic the organizer LEGAL (R)EVOLUTION GmbH monitored and analyzed the developments. The loosening of the Corona measures, the positive feedback of visitors and exhibitors in combination with the sophisticated health protection concept made the idea of a safe and successful event appear realistic, also in 2020. However, the rising infection rates caused a turnaround in September. Intensive exchanges with exhibitors and visitors, led to the decision to cancel the physical event, which should have taken place on 30 Nov. and 1 Dec. in Frankfurt Main.

"We would have done everything to make this face-to-face exchange possible for our visitors and exhibitors - especially now. Unfortunately, the current developments leave us with no other option but to cancel the event.“, explains Aranka Holes, Head of Expo, and Sophia Agne, Marketing Director at LEGAL REVOLUTION GmbH.

The virtual exhibition and congress LEGAL LIVE, initially planned for mid-2021, will take place earlier. The organizer will announce the exact date on 10 November on www.LEGAL-LIVE.net.

“We are working at peak performance on LEGAL LIVE. We will create an innovative online-event, which will offer unique experiences and high quality leads for visitors and exhibitors.“, states Dr. Jochen Brandhoff, founder of LEGAL REVOLUTION. “Matchmaking and other, for the Internet perfectly fitting ways of bringing exhibitors and visitors together, for mutual benefit will be the success factors of LEGAL LIVE“, adds Angelo Aratari, responsible manager of LEGAL LIVE.

Visitors who have already purchased tickets for LEGAL REVOLUTION 2020 will receive a full refund or can transfer the booked services to LEGAL REVOLUTION 2021.

The legal tech industry has grown to be one of the most attractive and lucrative sectors over the last few years. The arrival of digital products has ushered in software applications and automation tools that reduces the huge work-load of law firms, permitting lawyers to focus on important tasks that drives business value. Book Moore, founder of My-virtual lawyer spoke about the benefits of automating legal practice at an impressive interview conducted by the American Bar Association.

“Automating your law practice can drastically improve your firm. We don’t take the human element out of our practices, but we spend less time on menial task, and more time on things that require our skills and expertise”.

The legal industry is one of the oldest and most mature industries in the world. Centuries ago, the legal system used to be a simple case of right and wrong. However, the industry has since grown to accommodate our ever-changing society. When we look at today's world, we see that digitization has taken over. However, the legal industry is still a bit slow to move away from its dependency on paper workflows. That said, since the introduction of blockchain technology1 to business, there has been a need for lawyers in the blockchain ecosystem. Top businesses like IBM, Facebook and PwC advertise positions for blockchain-based lawyers constantly. This is an indication that there are significant use cases for blockchain in the legal industry.

According to a research report2 on legal firms, a total of 41% will integrate the blockchain in transactional legal services, while 21% will use it for business support and the remaining 31% for high-value legal services. These numbers are proof that there has been a shift from the paper-centric system. Blockchain technology is a transparent, immutable and secure distributed ledger that will enable lawyers to record and solve various types of legal matters. It could provide the legal system with multiple use cases including intellectual property rights, smart contracts, land registry, supply chain, chain of custody and litigation and settlements among others.

A law firm can build its reputation based on what kind of clients and deals it can serve and the bigger the clients, the higher are the risks with the deals they bring on the table. When you sit with your client on one side of the table and on the other side you have the buyer/seller of a company and their law firm and financial advisors, you definitely do not want to lose the leverage you have (or the leverage you helped your client find) to win.

At first glance it may look as though trust and technology don’t go together at all. Yet trust is a critical component for firms that want to build longstanding and lucrative client relationships – and technology can be deployed to help build it. This article explaines exactly how.

It might not seem as though trust and technology are complementary. After all, isn’t technology just a hard fact, while trust is an elusive, and perhaps also a fragile, emotion – hard to build, easy to destroy and difficult to measure?

Legal document automation is not scary. Automating the creation of documents is not intended to replace, minimise or threaten what lawyers do. Lawyers always have been, and always will be, the guardians of legal documents that form the basis of all business. But by automating certain parts of the process, they can be liberated to focus on elements of the role that add real value.
