Janders Dean Horizons London 2016

13th May 2016 – Andaz Hotel, London

About the Event

Janders Dean is pleased to announce yet another unparalleled conference aimed at the legal industry – one that clearly differentiates itself again from the “same-old-same-old” static and stale conferences that have plagued the industry in the past, one that actually inspires our delegates to apply new thinking to their roles and their firm, and one that is developed and planned not by a conference company with limited connections to the real world, but by our own team of expert global consultants and thought leaders who work day in and day out at the front lines of legal services transformation with our clients and emerging suppliers.

Our audience will again be a deliberate mix of private practice lawyers, in-house legal champions, senior knowledge and technology personnel, representatives from the emerging and evolving areas of legal pricing, process improvement, project management and service delivery enhancement. We believe that for an event such as this, the best knowledge sharing comes from a delegate community of job titles that has been “mixed up to fix up”.

We’re pleased to confirm that we have again assembled a unique speaking faculty to bring you lessons from the industry, from out-of-industry, and from the voice of clients. Representatives from a vast range of organisations will be presenting on the day and will share their experiences on a variety of successes and failures. Delegates will be allowed insights on emerging trends and issues, real successes and real failures, and be shown opportunities to transform the practice of law.

We look forward to welcoming you to this unique and coveted event, and to constantly striving towards the future horizon.
