Legal & compliance Technology - The Journey

thought leadership | networking | Technology Awareness | Roundtables | Workshops | Podcasts | Demos

A series of events to help set up a community of senior professionals, thought leaders, technologists & vendors across the legal & compliance space across key territories such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa.

The series will help establish a working group & community where you can lean on & reach out to peers, understand the tech landscape & challenges, alongside getting access to technologies across various relevant use cases.

oUR TEAM & OUR EXPERTISE SET US APART

We bring clarity and understanding to compliance & legal technology, topics that are rife with ambiguity and difficult questions.

The recent ACC CLO report highlights CLOs are planning to invest in new processes and technology to increase defensibility against compliance threats, streamline their department and increase the value add their teams can deliver.

The report also shows that 40% of companies do not have a comprehensive data management strategy and only 16% of in-house legal departments strategically contribute to data initiatives.
