Legal Innovation Hub

Bringing together key buyers of legal services, with the providers, talent and the investor community.

ILTA's Legal Innovation Hub

Legal services has been seeing market shifts, which have significantly accelerated during the pandemic. There is expanded use of technologies to automate, streamline, or outsource repeatable legal activity which has made legal services into a $14B market which continues to see double digit growth. The role of the General Counsel (GC) has evolved to that of a strategic advisor to the C-suite on issues such as business growth, governance, risk, and compliance in addition to legal. Many smaller law firms and corporate law departments are underserved by the current legal service providers. These conditions all point to additional growth for legal service providers who will need funding and talent to grow to meet the market needs.

ILTA is positioned at the center of the legal services ecosystem.

We're launching the ILTA Legal Innovation Hub to better meet the changing needs of its members and the legal community at large. The ILTA Legal Innovation Hub is poised to introduce key buyers of legal services with the providers, the talent, and the investor community. The Hub will be launched in 3 phases:
