TechLaw Week 9-11 November 2021

The last 18 months has brought significant change across the world and is still changing now - particularly in regards to technology, regulation and how we live and work with technology.

Join us for our 16th annual TechLaw event this November to hear from our experts around the globe discussing some of the key issues businesses are facing. Bringing together the legal tech community to share knowledge and build connections, this year’s TechLaw event will be held as a hybrid in-person and digital event.

The sessions will be hosted by our experts in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the USA and focus on local issues whilst also considering the international impact. In these rapidly changing times, our legal experts will highlight the regulatory, geopolitical, business and economic issues expected to impact your businesses and customers.

We look forward to welcoming you online or in person.

There will be an opportunity to network with other attendees 30 minutes before and after the sessions each day.

In person attendance on Thursday 11 November

We have a limited number of audience tickets available at our London office for Thursday 11 November. You can express your preference for online or in-person attendance during the registration process. In person attendance will be followed by drinks and networking.

We will be following strict health and safety protocols to enable in-person attendance, subject to specific guidance in place at the time, and numbers will be subject to availability. Should it become necessary to further reduce or limit attendance, online participation will be offered to all registered attendees.
