There is a new approach to buying legal services and the new way forward is the mission

of the Buying Legal® Council.


For the past five years, Buying Legal® Council conferences have brought together hundreds of key influencers from different industries, including pharma, banking, insurance, and other multinational corporations. 

We showcase the leading subject matter experts speaking on the hottest topics to give our attendees a valued learning experience on the industry’s latest and future trends, advanced market intelligence, and actionable insights on solutions for their most pressing business challenges.

This year we will have a close look at the following, most pressing business challenges for clients:

  • Cost management
  • eBilling & advanced analytics
  • Automation of work/new technology
  • Efficiency and productivity

DIFFERENT from all other conferences in our industry, in 2020 we will kick off a new format that facilitates an open, honest, and constructive DIALOGUE between buyers and sellers of legal, alternative, and ancillary legal services and legal technology:

You will get insights and solutions for buyers’ TOP BUSINESS CHALLENGES when buying legal services. Select suppliers will provide their approaches on how to best overcome these challenges. Think “Shark Tank” or “Dragon’s Den” meets supply day: Suppliers will pitch their solutions to buyers, showcasing how their approach is the best solution to the business challenges.

In addition, you will get a chance to get exclusive insights into live Legal Procurement Dialogue sessions: seasoned legal procurement professionals will discuss with in-house counsel and legal ops professionals what is important to them and answer suppliers’ most burning questions.


All registration types are full access passes. Passes include:

  • Access to the exhibit hall
  • ALL educational sessions
  • ALL Meals: Breakfast, lunch, snacks and and cocktail hours on Monday and Tuesday.
