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.
