The Agile Firm Bristol



The Agile Firm Bristol saw regional Managing Partners, CTOs, COOs, CIOs, IT and Facilities Directors come together to understand how agile working principles are transforming the way the legal and professional services sector does business. It gave attendees a unique opportunity to talk, not just with our experts, but also with their peers in leading firms who are harnessing the benefits of agile working.

“One of the most worthwhile events in the legal IT calendar”

“Fantastic to hear the fresh perspectives on agile working in the modern Law Firm”

“A cracking panel debate whether the law firm model is shifting from rigid & fixed to flexible & fluid”

“Agenda was great and is in line with where we are in our agile journey”

“Brilliant event, the size of it has created a great ability to network and great participation from the floor in asking questions”
