We need to talk about Legal Engineers

Join us on Wednesday, January 25 for a frank discussion on legal engineers

Law firms are evolving more rapidly than ever to meet the demands of today’s market. Legal services must digitize to expand the scope of a firm’s offering, meet the needs of a modern business, and cater to clients’ increasing need for cost certainty.

So, top law firms have turned to legal engineers, the link between legal expertise, software, and service delivery.

Join us for a direct, honest one-on-one conversation about the rise of legal engineering with Andrew Medeiros, Director of Innovation Solutions at Troutman Pepper. We’ll take time to answer questions submitted by attendees, so be sure to join us live!
