Conducting outstanding legal IT support in a stunning environment

The members of the South West Legal IT represent law firms and suppliers spread across a 200 mile peninsula. This area incorporates cities, towns, villages and hamlets in one of the most beautiful regions of the country. Here, significant business is conducted from high street to City style law firms. The South West incorporates the Regional Law Firm of the Year and many top 100 and top 200 law firms.

The South West Legal IT Forum offers an informal setting to discuss technology opportunities, issues  and solutions affecting law firms, products and support as well as sector strategy discussions with peers.
“A very well run event, and an ideal forum to exchange views” (Charles Christian, Legal Technology Insider).

"I do not know whether there are similar IT networks in other regions, but if the South West Legal IT Forum is anything to go by, there certainly should be.” (Joanna Goodman, Law Society Gazette )
