TechTorget, Oslo

This month saw the inaugural launch of TechTorget in Oslo. The event was brought together by Peter van Dam, Chief Digital Officer at Simonsen Vogt Wiig, and Erik Ødegaard, with the full support and collaboration of the Norwegian Bar Association. 

The event aims to provide the legal sector with an overview of legal tech solutions that are proven and available to legal practitioners to implement right now.

“We saw the legal sector and vendors using enormous amounts of time to meet each other. So we created a sort of marketplace for them.”

Spending just 2-3 hours at the event, says van Dam, can help lawyers to stay informed on the many vendors they would otherwise be unaware of in the market who are providing some great solutions.  

What’s more, the event makes future legal tech concrete. It can really demonstrate how, through small steps and investing in real solutions, the legal industry has nothing to fear as it prepares for that future.

STHLM – VQ Forum 2019 – by VQ

This year we celebrate our tenth anniversary of VQ Forum! Welcome to a special day, where we will meet a mix of favorite speakers from the previous years and new ones, all with their visions for the next ten years. We will also take the opportunity to highlight products and services developed during these years and to say thank you to some very special persons who have helped us along the way.

Please note that the number of delegates will be limited to 200 this year, to ensure the best experience and networking possibilites, so make sure to register well in advance! (Registration will open at 15 March.)

This year’s main theme is Law 2.0. We will focus on the demands of innovation from all aspects. Technology naturally plays an important role, but innovation is not simply a case of automating process, it is about creating new ways of working and new ways of delivering services, and building new kinds of organisations. Will the traditional law firm business model survive the changing expectations? What kind of competitors are already here and what else will come?

The potential disruption of the legal market will be explored, with case studies and examples of successful reinventions in practice. We will inter alia explore the concept of Un Law Firm, a completely new way to deliver the legal services by incorporating the value-add of all necessary providers including legal tech companies, law firms and individual lawyers, LPO’s and insourcing agencies.

We will also discuss the conflict between greater efficiency with billing targets, how to move away from the billable hour not just in relation to the client, but also in the internal organisation. How do you address questions such as training, bonus and appraisals from a new perspective? And when will AI become the gamechanger many of us expect?

Please note that this will be our last VQ Forum, as we have decided to end with a “Big Bang”. When we initiated the event ten years ago, it was an innovative way of highlighting the development of legal service from a strategic aspect and to create a new kind of platform where we could connect all people involved in this development, not only legal counsels and law firm partners but also HR and Legal Tech specialists etc. Now there are several easily accessible events around Europe regarding legal innovation and legal tech, and we will therefore, as from next year, consider new ways of being in the forefront of the development and highlighting ideas and supporting knowledge sharing around legal innovation.

Since this year will be both our tenth anniversary and our final event in this format we will make it something extra special, with inter alia a celebration dinner with entertainment after the conference. So make sure to save the date 17 October 2019 already now!
