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.

Global perspectives on tax planning challenges

Professor Giulio Allevato spoke of anti-abuse rules and tax planning challenges in three different conferences held at Colombia.

At the XII International Tax Meeting Conference, “Tax planning challenges in the face of specific anti-abuse rules”, held in Bogota at Universidad Externado, Professor Allevato joined various international speakers to address the topic from a comparative European, American and Colombian perspective, taking into account legal tax, corporate, and criminal viewpoints. In particular, Professor Allevato, whose research mainly focuses on the regulatory function of taxation, tax compliance legal framework,  tax issues related to the Digital Economy, and legal implications of tax risk management, observed how cooperative tax compliance programs, which have already been implemented by over twenty-five OECD countries, are leading to a radical change in the corporate tax compliance framework.

“Through such programs, the traditional ex-post confrontation relationship between tax authorities and corporate taxpayers is progressively turning into an ex-ante cooperation mechanism, where the two parties are eager to jointly work to achieve advance solutions to tax qualification and tax application issues.

A challenging and worthy passion

Ekatherine Cibrián, alumni of the Master in Global Corporate Compliance and currently working at Eversheds Sutherland, on her experience, her passion for compliance and compromise to contribute to improving society through practice and organizations.

The state that the world and my country, Mexico, is facing with regards to corruption and other crimes demerit the development and the development of the citizens of the world. I always had in mind that I wanted to do something to improve the world. Due to my profession and the political and social context in my country, I convinced myself that the improvement could come from the private initiative.

Therefore, I decided to study IE´s Master in Global Corporate Compliance. I chose IE Law School because it assured me a global perspective, which meant that I could gain a rich and diverse social and political context that could allow me to implement an ethical culture in organizations. It allowed me to view at same problems through different lenses,  scenarios and different paths to implement the best solutions.
