Virtual Intelligence VQ AB has announced details of its upcoming 2013 event, which takes place in Stockholm on 13 & 14 November. Now rebranded as the Stockholm Legal Business Summit, it consists of two joint strategic events hosted by VQ Knowledge and Strategy Forum and the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.
VQ Knowledge and Strategy Forum (on the 13th) covers topics of interest in leadership, strategy, innovation and technology for the legal and professional services market. Learn about new business opportunities, changing conditions in practice for legal service providers and how to develop new legal services, products and tools to take the innovative market leading position. The second day of the Summit will be hosted by SCC and will be entirely devoted to the commercial angle of dispute resolution, with a particular focus on mediation and its role in the changing landscape of legal services.
