The Founding Circle of ALT

Our Founding Circle has shaped the legal technology industry for the last 40 years and has been instrumental in developing other Legal Tech associations. Feeling that true networking and collaboration (between members AND vendors) at modern-day associations had been lost, ALT was created as an alternative.

As a new association, we are excited to watch our growth in becoming a relevant fixture (and sometimes disruptor) in the Legal Tech community. We challenge the traditional “norm” and our members LOVE the results.

“I’ve been to hundreds of legal conferences over the years, and ALT is unique. No other event focuses so completely on facilitating interactions between all attendees, no matter where they sit in the ecosystem. People at all levels from law firms, corporate law departments, technology providers and alternative service providers interact seamlessly. The keynotes and workshops were excellent, but the real value was in the dozens of discussions that take place throughout the event. Some pundits have recently referred to legal tech as an “echo chamber” but ALT is the exact opposite. There is an energy here that feels like something that’s worth being part of.”
