Pilgrim Systems Plc is to be the headline sponsor of this year’s Alternative Legal IT Conference, taking place on 21st and 22nd September at The Belfry, near Birmingham.Pilgrim’s COO Colin Kennedy said of the decision, “We are delighted to be strongly associated with an event that addresses many of the issues that UK mid-size law firms face today. Mid-size law firms represent 40% of fee earners working in this country. Most legal technology conferences focus on the very large firms which account for a far lower proportion of UK lawyers. The Alternative Legal IT Conference is aimed at the engine room of today’s profession; an engine room that is facing unique challenges and opportunities. Pilgrim has the solutions for these firms and we are proud to be part of an event that I believe will soon be able to drop the word ‘alternative’ from its title.”The Alternative Legal IT Conference is the definitive event for mid-sized firms wishing to enhance their IT function and streamline processes in a challenging economic environment with appropriate speakers, case studies and solutions. Presentations and roundtables will be led by speakers who understand the problems law firms face, because they face the same problems in their firms, every day. You will hear speakers exclusively from mid-tier firms, who aren’t on the usual conference circuit, and who you would not meet otherwise.
