(November 19, 2019) – Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory leaders will join experts from around the world at the upcoming European LegalTech Congress in Madrid, with a focus on the transformation of the legal profession and advancing the application of technology in the legal market.

Joining other legal tech leaders and innovators speaking at this global conference are three distinguished thought leaders from Wolters Kluwer. Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory’s Vice President of Strategy Chantal Vermeire will serve as a keynote speaker, presenting The Future Ready Lawyer, an independent survey on the future of the legal profession released by Wolters Kluwer. The global survey found that organizations already leveraging technology today have a competitive advantage, including higher profitability and readiness to take on change. Providing highlights and key findings from the survey, Vermeire will examine top trends, technology and change in the legal profession and provide valuable insight on what professionals can do to ensure they are “future ready.”

Vermeire will also take part in a roundtable discussion entitled, “The Future of the Legal Market: The Vision of the Technology Providers and the Firms.” A legal industry expert, Vermeire has been following the legal and regulatory markets for over 15 years, with a focus on industry trends and the opportunities that advanced technologies can bring to the legal sector. At Wolters Kluwer, Vermeire drives the strategy and execution plans for legal and regulatory markets across Europe and the United States.

Grégoire Miot, who leads New Markets Sales for the French Legal Software unit at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory, will share his insights in the roundtable session, “Strategy to Buy and Develop Legal Tech: Finance and Investment.” A former practicing lawyer and entrepreneur, Miot has been heavily involved with legal technology for the past decade. He was also appointed this year as Ambassador for the European LegalTech Association (ELTA) in France.
