This was an intimate gathering (but filled room) of 80 people at the beautiful offices of McCarthy Tetrault in Vancouver.
The emergence of new technology is continuing to revolutionize how lawyers practice and how people access legal services. As
entrepreneurship in the legal space continues to proliferate, a series of new challenges are beginning to emerge. From dynamic market needs to the rise of alternative providers, this event will explore how entrepreneurs and lawyers are navigating these new realities.
