IBA 2017 – Observations from Down Under

3 November 2017

During this year’s IBA annual conference, we again had the privilege of meeting with 40 prominent law firms from around the globe to discuss topical issues. 

In addition to learning about important updates from the respective firms and the legal markets in general, we focused on three main areas in our discussions this year:

  1. What kind of growth or focus areas do people see in their business in the next couple of years

  2. Where we are going with the roll-out of AI tools in our work

  3. How do firms look at the key diversity and gender equality aspects.

We are happy to share some of our observations from the discussions with our colleagues during the IBA week. Please explore a summary of our main conclusions here.
