TORONTO, May 9, 2017 – Law Made and Thomson Reuters will jointly develop and host a series of exclusive cross-Canada Thought Leadership events bringing together legal tech startups and lawyers and other legal professionals in firms, corporations and government. These events will provide deep insight into the true state of legal innovation, enabling participants to identify approaches and solutions that will advance their organizations.
“It’s often said that the legal industry is going through a period of disruptive change,” said Neil Sternthal, Managing Director, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, with the Thomson Reuters Legal business. “It can be hard to determine what’s signal, and what’s noise. This innovative event series that we are creating with Law Made will help professionals identify and seize the real opportunities that exist, right now, in the legal technology space.”
