Legal Week Spanish event still on

Legal Week has just been in touch to say their fourth annual Strategic Technology Forum is still taking place in Spain on 10-12 June – there had been rumours that it was going to 'do a Legal Technology Awards'.  They say 'more than 50 CIOs and IT directors from leading law firms from across Europe and North America will discuss how technology can help create business efficiency, add value and help improve the bottom line.' The forum, which has the theme ‘Strategic thinking in a challenging market – preparing for the upturn’ will be co-chaired by Abby Ewen, IT director, Simmons & Simmons and Simon Thompson, global chief operating officer, Linklaters.

'No' they haven't sent us an invite – but we don't actually care as the dates clash with production deadlines. And 'yes' we'd love to know if they really do get more than 50 CIOs and IT directors to attend.

I can’t promise anyone that it will as sunny in Ware as it is in Spain, but I can guarantee that there will be 70 IT directors and CIOs at this year’s By Legal for Legal. This is on the 13th -15th of May and will be held at Hanbury Manor. I still have a couple of places and interested parties are welcome to get in touch. My DDI is 0207 017 5755 or

Just been speaking to the MD of a large legal IT vendor complaining that considering his company is meant to pick up part of the tab for next week's By Legal For Legal event – to pay for a load of IT directors to get sloshed – its a pity Informa could not have put together a better programme for the event. He went on to say he thought the Legal Week extravaganza in Spain had a far superior conference programme.
