After two successful previous LawTech lecture sessions, we are happy to announce the next event of this series that will take place in London on October 30 at Barclays Eagle Labs. The upcoming edition of our series is all about "Using ayfie - Uncover the 'who did what when' faster, easier and with more impact."
As you might already know, ayfie's linguistically advanced "big text" analytics solutions connect people, activities and time so customers and partners can build a winning case faster. Two of them, Fenwick Elliott and Lineal, will share their experience and present best practice examples during their highly interesting talk. After that, there will be a Q&A session, moderated by ayfie's CTO Johannes Stiehler.
The detailed agenda is as follows:
18:00 - 18:45: Registration
18:45 - 19:00: Fenwick Elliott and ayfie: The first 3 months...
19:00 - 19:15: Lineal and ayfie: Lawyer Driven ECA (This talk will be discussing how using ayfie puts the power back into the hands of lawyers, particularly around ECA and the new Practice Direction 51U that essentially requires the ‘front loading’ of disclosure.)
19:15 - 19:45: Q&A & Best Practices Discussion
19:45 - 21:30: Food, Drinks & Networking
