Take part in the digital Lawyers' Future Congress | Anwaltszukunftskongress 2020 and get an overview of where the BigFour stand today in the field of legal management consulting and where the trend is heading.

1 October 2020 | digital conference

This year, the Lawyers' Future Congress | Anwaltszukunftskongress (AZK) will be held as a digital conference. In addition to opening remarks and keynote speeches, for the first time, a BigFour Panel will discuss the dynamic changes in the legal market in the area of legal management consulting.

For Deloitte, Kai Jacob will contribute his expertise gained in many years acting as (in-house) counsel at SAP, his commitment as founder and Co-CEO of the Liquid Legal Institute and his experience from his first year at Deloitte Legal. He will discuss how these "new players" differ from the traditional law firms, how they deliver their services, who they partner with in providing services and how COVID-19 changes the way legal services are provided.

The moderator, Dr. Anette Schunder-Hartung, is interested to learn how the big audit firms use their technological advantage in the legal field and to work out the similarities and differences in the concepts and approaches. According to Kai Jacob, standardization is and remains the biggest lever for automation. In addition, new working methods such as agile working and the formation of diverse teams are gaining in importance.

The Event will take place 1 October 2020 digitally in German language. For further information and registration please follow this link.
