Headline Acts Announced for New York Lawstar Summit

Four top legal innovators have been announced to top the bill at the New York Lawstar Summit later this month.

Meet the Legal Rockstars 

Thomas Sharpe, General Counsel and Managing Director of Natixis; Monet Fauntleroy, senior manager, Practice Innovation at White & Case; Lucy Bassli, LawGeex, Chief Legal Strategist; and Kathy Keeler Donahue, Manager, Legal Business Operations at Lonza are all set to speak at the agenda-setting gathering.

The billing of top legal leaders has already made the upcoming summit one of the hottest tickets of the year. The dates have only just been announced but anticipation of rock ’n’ roll and legaltech excess has already led to over 100 legal professionals confirmed to attend the event. The summit will be on January 28, starting at 6.30pm at New York’s Times Square – register for it here.

The summit will reveal the secret innovation and strategies from a range of industries, including Natixis (the international corporate and investment banking, asset management, insurance, and financial services arm of Groupe BPCE); perspectives on innovation from New York-headquartered global firm, White and Case; expertise from former Microsoft contract leader, Lucy Bassli; and tales from the front line of innovation at Lonza, a major pharmaceutical and biotech player.

The event includes four presentations, and an opportunity to get up close to and network with legaltech lawstars on the panel, and those in attendance at the intimate and exclusive session.

The session follows the success of events in London, New York, and Chicago (highlights from previous events here). The return to the Big Apple will provide a platform for top law departments to show how they have radically transformed their legal processes and achieved Return on Investment (ROI) through legal technology adoption and change management. Register here to network with the leaders of legaltech adoption.

Speakers will discuss the challenges they have faced both technologically and organizationally. The focus is on what departments are actually doing, and the results they are seeing.
