At Intelligent Office we believe that there are great solutions out there to every issue we currently face in transforming the legal workplace, but that firms will not arrive at the best options for them working in isolation. By pulling together this community of often under-recognised leaders and managers, we aim to help create a big boost to cross-sector collaboration and innovation over the coming years. 

The Legal Office and Facilities Forum, for office and facilities leaders, will work with Intelligent Office to share best practice and jointly develop ideas and solutions.

    Launch Event: The New Legal Workplace

    Tuesday 12th July 2022, 4:00pm
    Kingsley Napley, 20 Bonhill St, London EC2A

    In advance of the all-important summer socialising and networking at our launch event, we will kick-off with an interactive insights session on ‘The New Legal Workplace’.  With this generation of law firm Office & Facilities Leaders finding themselves in the middle of a once-in-a-lifetime radical rethink of how, where and when legal work is done, the workplace is having to adapt and evolve at speed.

    Our launch venue couldn’t be more appropriate – Kingsley Napley’s new London Office opened in 2021 – and we are delighted that the KKS Savills workplace design team behind this cutting-edge space will be joining us to talk about the dramatic changes in office environments and what might be next, with facilitation from our own Chris Bull, author of The Agile Law Firm, and contributions from law firm leaders.
