The Asia Pacific Legal Innovation and Technology Association (ALITA) has joined the Global Legal Tech Report research initiative, joining forces with legal tech associations from around the world and industry-leading research partners to undertake the world’s first and most comprehensive study into the legal tech industry and the people behind the businesses.
This first-of-its-kind project is designed to help law firms, legal tech businesses, investors, and other relevant parties comprehensively understand the booming legal tech sector.
ALITA is a regional network that connects communities physically and virtually to facilitate cross-border collaboration in the space of legal innovation and technology and promote the sharing of knowledge.
“Our shared purpose is to drive collaboration in legal innovation and technology in the region,” Josh Lee Kok Thong, Chair of the ALITA Steering Committee said.
“A key part of this strategy is to enhance connections, collaboration and coordination between legal technology associations, regulators, law firms, technology companies and legal technology interest groups across the Asia-Pacific to generate opportunities for our stakeholders, which made the decision to support this initiative easy,” he said.
“We are delighted to welcome ALITA to the project. Their involvement helps us engage with local legal tech companies and deliver compelling insights into the health and composition of the Asia Pacific legal tech sector,” Stevie Ghiassi, Project Director, ALTA Board member and CEO of Legaler said.
The Asian Report will be launched at ALTACON, the leading legal + tech conference in the Southern Hemisphere, that will be run as a virtual event on 28 and 29 May 2020.
The Asian report can be pre-ordered now, saving 20% on the list price of $US399.
The Global Legal Tech Report is a joint project led by the leading legal innovation consultancy, Alpha Creates, and ALTA, the Australian Legal Technology Association.
This project would not be made possible without the support of major research partners, KPMG, Macquarie, and the Law Society.
“Their support through funding, resources, and access to their networks have enabled us to bring this project to life. What started as a simple idea is now a world-class research study and we are incredibly grateful for their contributions,” Stevie Ghiassi said.
ALITA is a regional network uniting over 120 organisations and 20 jurisdictions(and counting) in the Asia-Pacific with a shared purpose: to drive collaboration in legal innovation and technology in the region. Its mission is three-fold:
- Promote the development and use of legal technology, as well as to advance thought leadership and education in the fields of legal innovation and technology;
- Aid the efforts of national legal technology associations and provide guidance and expertise in the creation and operation of local legal technology associations; and
- Enhance connections, collaboration and coordination between legal technology associations, regulators, law firms, technology companies and legal technology interest groups across the Asia-Pacific to generate opportunities for our stakeholders.
