The Legal Platform War
1.45 – 2pm | Maia Room
Three major announcements in May 2019 by PwC, KPMG and Intapp point to the start of the Legal Platform War. It’s a conflict that’s likely to rage for the next decade and will have profound implications for law firms, legal technology providers and all others along the legal supply chain. This presentation will explain what we mean by a ‘platform’, provide case studies of emerging platforms and identify some of the strategic issues and questions everyone should be asking.
