The event is designed to help those in the legal sector stay up to date with IT in general, and what legal-focused digital solutions are available in the marketplace.

As a participant the experience was very pleasant and with a lot of relevant and interesting topics. We are looking forward to next years event, hybrid, virtual or physical.

QV Forum 2019

Nordic Legal Tech telling it like it is!

The 10th and final QV Forum was held in Stockholm this year. Its central theme was Law 2.0 – an exploration of the potential disruption of the legal market. 

Nordic Legal Tech was there, with a provocative presentation, “Software Is Eating the World”. CEO Nicholas Hawtin warned:

“The next generation of solution builders are focused on users and their problems. The solutions they are building are built on solving the user’s problems as intuitively and simply as possible. They are focused on the task the user is trying to perform, not on the legal issue related to that task. The resulting solutions integrate seamlessly and are often invisible.

“This may sound straightforward, but it is very hard to do – and it is not something law firms do well. Their processes do not support it. Their business model directly hinders it. Eventually, their inability to master it will cost them lots of jobs and massive revenue. And ‘eventually’ is coming faster than many of them understand.”
