Legal industry leaders attend Legal Procurement Forum


Leaders from major multinationals, ASX 100 listed companies and government departments have registered and will be attending.

In the US, legal procurement is quickly becoming ubiquitous and large organisations are saving up to 30% on their legal spend. There has been no compromise to quality, just the implementation of end-to-end strategic legal procurement processes and practices.

This is your chance to gain an insight into Legal Procurement best practice.

The content discussed at this event will be bold and perhaps provocative. The discussion and debate will be the highlight, and for this reason it will be a closed room event with no attendance from external law firms. Chatham House rules apply.

A Sneak Peek Preview:

Dr Silvia Hodges Silverstein, Executive Director, Buying Legal Counsel – check out her LinkedIn profile here. In one of her numerous white papers Sylvia states – “Say good-bye to the “good old boys network” of hiring lawyers.” You can read an abstract here.

Jonathan Benson, Head of Legal – Australia, Royal Bank of Scotland –  Check out his LinkedIn profile out here. A highly experienced General Counsel who, post-GFC used innovative, and at times controversial, procurement strategies to drive greater value while ensuring quality.

Warwick Walsh, CEO and Founder, Lawcadia – Check out his LinkedIn profile here. His drive for innovation in the legal industry lead to the establishment of Lawcadia in 2015. Lawcadia has published two recent papers, Guide to Legal Procurement  and Managing Legal Costs. Both have been described as the definitive commentary on best practice.

The beaton partners at beaton Research + Consulting, check out George and the team here. In a report for the Buying Legal Counsel, Dr George Beaton stated: “While there will always be tension in price negotiations the recognition of what really drives the procurement of legal services will benefit all stakeholders in the long run”.
