Event summary:

With all today’s excitement around LawTech, it’s easy to overlook the pivotal role across the top 200 UK law firms played by core IT practice (PMS), case (CMS) and document (DMS) management systems.

In many ways the beating IT heart of the practice, these systems are undergoing rapid change at the moment as familiar products reach end of life, firms migrate their IT to the cloud and user requirements become more demanding.

Our breakfast seminar brings together leading specialists to identify latest market practice and help firms’ senior and IT management navigate the technical, business and legal issues in core systems implementations.

3Kites is one of the UK’s leading specialist IT consultancy to the professional services sector. Respected for its independence and known for its fresh, straightforward thinking, 3Kites has advised many top 200 UK law firms on core IT systems implementations. With its unrivalled experience of PMS, CMS and DMS projects, 3Kites consultants advise throughout the project lifecycle, from inception through vendor selection to data conversion, implementation, go live and support.

Kemp IT Law is one of the UK’s top IT law firms. With recent experience acting for a wide range of top 200 firms on their PMS, CMS and DMS contracts with all the leading vendors, the firm has deep, relevant sector experience of market practice and what law firms need for successful core systems agreements.

Together, 3Kites and Kemp IT Law bring an unrivalled wealth of practical experience, insight and guidance to new core systems implementations. Our session will focus on what law firm senior and IT management need to know to successfully navigate the challenges of these mission critical projects.

The event is at the Corinthia Hotel, Whitehall Place, Northumberland Ave, close to Embankment and Charing Cross tube stations (see map). Attendees will have an opportunity to network at breakfast and coffee. We promise to get everyone away by 10.30 so as not to take up too much of your day. Speakers will be around after session close and happy to continue discussions informally.
