Contract automation and other online tools to produce legal documents better faster have moved on, with accelerating advances in technology and continuing pressure on private practice and in-house legal teams to achieve efficiencies in the contract lifecycle.

The SCL KM advisory group last hosted a seminar on this topic in 2016 – and feel it’s high time we brought technology experts and practitioners together again for a second look.

The group is very pleased that Andy Wishart, Global Head of Drafting and Automation at Thomson Reuters, has again agreed to be one of our expert speakers. Andy will be joined by David Howorth, one of the co-founders of Avvoka, one of the new breed of contract automation solutions that have come onto the market since our 2016 session, and Orlando Conetta, Head of SmartDelivery at Pinsent Masons LLP.

Whatever stage of the contract automation journey your law firm or legal department has reached, don’t miss this opportunity to hear practical tips on current best practice and expert insight on what the future holds. The seminar will be chaired and hosted by Allen & Overy LLP at their One Bishops Square office on Tuesday, 11th September, starting at 6pm sharp. Formal proceedings will finish at 7.15, followed by an opportunity for attendees to chat over drinks.
