LegalTech in Leeds was initially created as a short-term initiative, coordinated by Whitecap Consulting in partnership with Leeds City Council, Leeds Law society, and supporting sponsors, with the following aims:
- bring together the legal and tech sector
- help drive digital adoption across the legal sector
- support tech entrepreneurs to engage with the legal sector
- improve access to legal services.
This initiative ran over three months and culminated in a full day conference which can be rewatched here.
After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from the conference as well as a strong desire for the initiative to continue, an ongoing programme of activity has been developed which is continuing to gain interest and build momentum across Leeds City Region.
The new annual programme is gathering momentum and is already being supported by Addleshaw Goddard, Barclays Eagle Labs, Bruntwood SciTech, Calls9, CSP, DAC Beachcroft, Leeds City Council, Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, Leeds Law Society, LawTechUK, rradar and University of Law – with discussions in progress with various other key regional stakeholders around events and activities that are aligned to the objectives of LegalTech in Leeds.

Our next event, in partnership with Bruntwood SciTech, will be held at Platform and is the first in a quarterly series of Legal Innovation Talks which will cover innovation and digital transformation across legal services, with each one exploring specific themes. The first event focuses on the theme of ‘how to be more innovative’ and will feature a range of speakers with different perspectives.
