As the legal marketplace gets to grips with the impact of technology – from Artificial Intelligence to Blockchain – the purpose of law firms has come into question. The needs of law departments have changed and the challenge for law firms lies in innovating their offerings. With the balance of power fast shifting, what can law firms do to lead the market, change their model and deliver legal services differently. And what do legal departments actually want?  The GC Futures Summit will bring together some of the top global corporates and financial institutions to answer these questions and engage in a new conversation with their external advisers. Legal advisors from some of the top global companies including Shell, Santander, Lloyds, Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Jaguar Land Rover, Macquarie Group, Lloyds Banking Group, BT;  Finastra; Sony, Royal London Group, Brambles, Wells Fargo, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Group and Wood Group will gather to discuss the new era of legal and how law firms and legal departments can develop trusted relationships in the dynamic new technology driven world which is reshaping the legal marketplace. If you would like to attend, please contact benmartin@globalcitymedia.com.
