Pre-Forum Networking Champagne Reception
Legal Week Global Independent Law Firms Forum kicks off in style with our networking champagne reception at 7pm on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at Jumeirah Carlton Tower, London SW1. The drinks reception is a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow delegates and speakers in advance of the event, allowing you to broaden network and make connections that will help you succeed in 2016 and beyond.

Global Independent Law Firms Forum 2015
I am delighted to announce that the the forum will be chaired by Per Magnusson. Per is a Swedish attorney-at-law (advokat), a senior partner and a founding partner of the international law firm Magnusson. Magnusson won European Law Firm of the Year for the third year running at The British Legal Awards 2014, hosted by Legal Week.

The Legal Week Global Independent Law Firms Forum sets out to help law firm leaders improve all aspects of the way their firms are managed. It covers operational challenges in fields such as marketing and business development and it analyses market developments and how they impact on strategy. This annual forum hosts speakers and delegates from every corner of the globe providing the opportunity to not only share experiences and learn from the insights of industry leaders but also to network with global peers.
logoEnhanced networking - using 'oneTap-to-connect' technology
At this year's forum we are using Blendology to provide oneTap-to-connect technology. This technology makes it easy for you to exchange your contact information - by simply tapping. Badges will be given to you at registration and the Blendology team will show you how they work. At a minimum your name and email will be shared with the people you tap with - use it as a complement to your Business cards. You can also enhance your profile with extra information to be shared.

I look forward welcoming you to London in March for two exciting days of learning and networking.
