The Future of Work Series
Future proofing legal teams through innovation: are you ready for the world of tomorrow?

Eversheds Sutherland is pleased to invite you to the latest event in our Future of Work series, focusing on the role Legal plays in driving your business.

Whether the legal team is in-house, external, a temporary contractor or offsite support, the people in the team and the processes and tools they use are a vital part of a business’ overall success. The days of a legal team being a business blocker or merely a cost centre are over. 

This talk is aimed at business leaders who rely on legal support and the people who lead legal support teams. We will focus on new ways of working, the evolution of legal processes, and new technologies available. 

How can the legal function use innovation to better support the business? Are you getting the most out of technology? What is AI and are legal teams using it? Can you save the business money by embracing the future of work? 

The speakers include:

  • Jennifer van Dale, Partner, Eversheds Sutherland Hong Kong
  • David Boyd, Partner, Eversheds Sutherland London
  • Mardi Wilson, Head of ES Agile, Hong Kong

Topics will include:

  • the approach of the Courts in Hong Kong; and
  • the approach of the regulators in Hong Kong.
