Elevating the significant above the noise

Legal IT Insider has become synonymous with identifying emerging trends and markets in business technology that relate to legal IT and then, crucially, its application in law office management. We separate the facts from the hype and provide future-looking insight and key metrics to help you plan, prioritise and respond to opportunities and so deal with challenges ahead of time. More intelligence equals more power.

Always ahead

We have always been ahead of the curve and pioneers in publishing platforms: we were the first legal IT newsletter in the market, the first to go digital, the earliest website, the first blog (and most successful) and first with a new generation of apps for the iPad era. We have a history of predicting future IT topics before they become mainstream and keep ahead of trending news with an eye on global connectivity and emerging technologies and markets.

Our reputation

What differentiates us is that we are independent, not driven by sponsors or partners, so our reputation is impeccable for unbiased, newsworthy news. Long term relationships and networks built on trust mean we are often the first media called with the latest breaking news and exclusives. We also have a solid reputation that if we are given information but it is not for release, or available until a certain date, it is safe with us.

Our first conference and exhibition was a sell out

As we expand into new markets and bring online more resources for users we are also widening our presentation of information into new formats. LawTech Futures 2012 (held in March 2012) was a joint Legal IT Insider and Netlaw Media venture examining the future of legal technology. It was a huge success, with delegates coming in from as far afield as Australia, and proved to be the UK’s largest one day legal IT event. In fact, the largest legal IT event outside the US.

LawTech Futures 2013 – another sell out success

Once again Europe’s largest legal IT event, co-produced by Legal IT Insider and NetLaw Media – the industry’s leading conference organisers, broke all attendance records of delegates and exhibitors. With three presentation stages including a 450 seat conference room delivering multi-stream conference sessions, a keynote presentation by Ray Kurzweil, the world’s ultimate futurist, panel discussions, interviews, debates and interactive demonstrations, LawTech Futures 2013 – The Future of Legal Technology is now the biggest legal technology conference and exhibition outside of the USA.
