Modern Law: Daniel Porus on building user-centred products and scaling a legal tech company globally

Nick Kirby, Legal Director at Mishcon de Reya discusses building specialist technology teams, starting incubators, and how tech has transformed the legal industry.

  • What insights and challenges of the legal industry can influence technology and innovation
  • Why ‘billable hours’ is a false KPI, now clients and users increasingly demand more from the legal industry
  • When firms are most likely to be open to change and how legal tech can collaborate with stakeholders on solutions
  • How legal tech innovators can penetrate new markets and scale up for increased demand in challenging times.
