IE hosts Legaltech Start-up Demo Fest to discuss global trends

On November 25th, IE´s Legaltech Innovation Farm welcomed legal professionals from across the globe for a conference on the landscape of legaltech startups around the world. The event, entitled Legal Tech Start-up Demo Fest, kicked off with talks from global industry experts, followed by a roundtable and startup demos from up-and-coming legaltech companies including Luminance, Legatics, and Avvoka.

On the panel, Beth Fellner from LegalGeek and Abigail Connor from Thomson Reuters were joined by Dr. Juan Carlos Luna from LATAM and Noemie Alintissar from the Singapore Academy of Law. Attendees, primarily comprised of lawyers, received sharp insights into the legaltech market, alongside predictions on how the role of technology will develop and ultimately transform the industry in the future.

Beth Fullner, Senior Conference Producer at LegalGeek, and Abigail Connor, Strategy Manager at Thomson Reuters, Legal Professionals Europe, opened the talks posing the question: with such a myriad of legaltech companies across Europe, how do we make sense of such a fragmented market?

In response, Beth introduced the Legal Geek startup map: a comprehensive structure which classifies distinct areas of legal work. The first map, created in 2017, provided a view of 70 legaltech startups across Europe, grouping the companies in terms of the task they focused on. The initiative has since grown in scope and detail and the most recent edition, released in 2019, investigated 253 startups and introduced a completely new taxonomy.
