" said Charles Christian, Editor in Chief of the Legal Technology Insider, American Legal Technology Insider and the Orange Rag Blog. “I'm excited to be on the advisory board for LawTech Europe because the legal world is entering into an exciting period in its evolution. The old certainties of five years have gone and instead we are facing new markets and new ways of looking at the delivery of legal services. Technology has always been an enabler and in this dynamic environment, an event like LawTech Europe Congress provides a perfect opportunity for delegates to look at new ways of working, new ways of engaging with clients and service providers and how avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. It is not just the legal landscape that is changing but also the technology and the users of this technology."

In our era of "Big Data", the mastery of computerized search methods, digital evidence and digital forensics has become essential in the fields of civil litigation and criminal prosecution.” stated Monique Altheim. “At the same time, the development of these advanced technologies has raised serious concerns for the privacy and freedom of individuals and has spawned a worldwide movement in data protection and privacy legislation and reform.
