Legal Geek North America: Creating an Innovative Buzz in Chicago

19 July 2023

As a proud sponsor of Legal Geek North America, the Legal Operations team was excited to bring our team to the one-day showcase of the latest innovations in legal technology.

Held at The City Hall in Chicago’s West Loop, we had the chance to meet a variety of legal practitioners from all over the country and to talk to them about how we can help “untangle their legal operations.”

The event featured bite-sized talks from several industry leaders in an intentionally casual environment, allowing the hundreds of professionals who attended to enjoy networking and visiting with industry peers.

“Legal Geek North America was a delight to take part in,” said Walter Wilkens, Head of Delivery North America. “From the informative talks to the energy on the exhibit floor, the attendees were engaged and inquisitive. The event had a real comfortable vibe with a great and active discourse.”

Our team of attendees included:

  • Donna McEnery — Global Head of Marketing and Business Development
  • Julia Perez — Partner & Global Head of Client Delivery and Integration
  • Vishal Anand — Senior Vice President
  • Linda Sheldon — Senior Vice President of Sales
  • W. Scott Wilkens — Head of Delivery, North America
  • Brian Radek — Director, Delivery
  • Ryan Donovan – Senior Legal Project Manager
  • Ben Gartland – Marketing and Communications Manager

On the exhibit floor, our booth featured our now-famous buzz wire, which dared participants to maneuver a large metal wand along a curving wire without touching it - a difficult task for the impatient! After a fierce, day-long competition and a lot of failed attempts, one attendee emerged victorious with the fastest time, earning a donation from DWF Group to the charity of their choice. Most importantly, all participants learned that, just like in untangling legal operations, having a plan and being patient helps you get all the way through successfully.

Overall, our global team was proud to be a sponsor of Legal Geek and to take part in the day’s events.

“Legal Geek North America was a fantastic event, and I had a great time chatting with the wide mix of legal professionals about how we can improve their legal department processes,” said Donna McEnery, Global Head of Business Development and Marketing. “Having been a proud participant and exhibitor of Legal Geek events in the UK and the US, I have quite enjoyed the programs they put together and we at DWF Group are excited to see their future growth in North America.”
