Legal innovation and business development - SCC News, 23 June 2015


Scandinavia’s leading strategy event - VQ Knowledge and Strategy Forum - will take place for the sixth time in Stockholm on 21 October. This year’s main focus is business development and innovation – from both in-house and outside counsel perspective.

The event is a cooperation between VQ and SCC.

"As a provider of dispute resolution services both in a domestic and international context, it is essential for us to participate in the ongoing discussion on legal innovation and strategy within the legal field", says SCC Secretary General, Annette Magnusson, in a comment. "Disputes must be assessed from a commercial perspective, and this conference provides important insights for this purpose."

The VQ Forum brings together leaders and champions of change in the legal profession to discuss strategy and key developments in the legal market. Success stories and case studies will be presented by legal professionals who have successfully changed their business to adapt to the new legal future.

One example is the ground-breaking transformation of the British Telecom in-house company legal team, and Archana Makol, Chief Counsel BT Legal, will share her insights on the innovative process. Miral Hamani-Samaan, EMEA M&A Managing Counsel at Hewlett-Packard, will explain their newly developed M&A tool that has systematized the processes and helped in making better judgments on acquisitions.

Key note speaker Jordan Furlong and legal tech guru Sally Gonzalez will discuss the changing legal market and the importance of knowledge management, among other things.
