Announcing the Legal Procurement Conference APAC 2018


When: Tuesday, 24 July 2018

Where: KPMG Sydney, Tower Three, International Towers, Barangaroo, Sydney

Who: In-house counsel, legal procurement and legal operations professionals and their law firm counterparts

Held in association with the Buying Legal Council, the Legal Procurement Conference APAC is a unique opportunity for legal operations and procurement professionals, in-house teams and their law firm counterparts to share insights, discuss ideas and explore the increasingly influential world of legal procurement.

Attendees from last year’s event have been impressed with both the quality of speakers and the unique audience, a fact that comes as no surprise to Dr Silvia Hodges Silverstein, Executive Director of the Buying Legal Council.

“As the sourcing of external legal services becomes a core component of legal operations in organisations around the world, the importance of events like the Legal Procurement Conference APAC cannot be underestimated,” she says.

“Offering a unique opportunity for the buyers of legal services to connect and share best practices, the conference isn’t simply the only one of its kind in the Asia-Pacific, but provides a unique opportunity for attendees to hear from a range of nationally and internationally recognised speakers and gain the knowledge required for the successful implementation of best practices proven to deliver both cost savings and process efficiencies”.

This is a sentiment echoed by Lawcadia’s CEO and founder, Warwick Walsh.

“We’ve worked hard to assemble a group of speakers who can address a range of topics that adequately reflect the changing attitudes towards effective legal procurement as an imperative organisational objective while recognising the inherent challenges in driving organisational change in a traditionally conservative, risk-averse environment,” he says.

He adds: “The growing role of legal technology and its ability to streamline and improve legal processes and operations can’t be overestimated, and an event like this provides an invaluable opportunity for legal professionals to learn from the experts and create a strategy for achievable, practical transformational change. It will be exciting to see the insights that emerge from this year’s event”.

The Legal Procurement Conference APAC 2018 will be held at KPMG offices in Sydney on Tuesday, 24 July 2018. Early bird registrations are open now, and a preliminary program is available here.
