As media partners of the event, Legal Technology Insider and The Orange Rag are delighted to welcome you to the inaugural Legal Week Audience with… IT directors evening, created especially for IT directors, managers and heads of IT at leading UK law firms.

With firms placed under constant pressure to innovate, they must also consider whether the opportunities to change outweigh the risks. The panel will focus on these challenges, which if overcome, have the potential to change the way law firm IT departments are run and the way in which firms provide their services. After the panel addresses these issues, the audience will be invited to participate in a short question and answer session.

Audience with… IT directors panel:
– Gareth Ash, CIO, Allen & Overy
– Tim B. Corcoran, vice president, Hubbard One
– Simon Kosminsky, IT director, SJ Berwin

Topics that will be addressed will include:
– Assessing the current challenges to change
– Process improvement and project management
– The ‘consumerisation’ of IT: turning mobility into profitability
– The legal IT department of tomorrow
– Capitalising on opportunities presented by the Legal Services Act
