ELTA 2022 legal tech showdown in Tel Aviv
On 29th November 2022 European Legal Tech Association (ELTA) will hold its annual conference in Tel Aviv, the first in-person conference since 2019. The event will take place at the Beit Haschamot hall and involve innovators from all walks of life in the legal service business.
According to the agenda, the presenters at the event are Dr. Eyal Shnarch (Manager of the Language and Retrieval research group at IBM Research); Sebastian Hartmann (of InTapp); Tamar Haramati (head of innovation at Shibolet Law Firm); Jon Bartman (head of Jameson Legal Tech); Nurit Kenner Yahav (of Sqlink); Aidas Kavalis (CEO of Amberlo); Damien Riehl (VP, Litigation Workflow and Analytics Content at Fastcase); Zohar Fischer (of Tech&Law Israel); Holger Zcsheyge (the President of ELTA).
In-person events finally came back
With just under two weeks until the ELTA legal tech conference in Tel Aviv, I can’t help but remember its previous iteration.
Who would say three years would have passed since #ELTAcon in Madrid? The Pandemic has undoubtedly shaped the world in its own image, and for one I am beyond excited to see my fellow legal tech innovators in person, at the very crib of the Startup Nation!
The event lineup and topic are promising; the city (I am told) is an amazing tourist attraction. What more is there to ask from a conference? Oh, that’s right, the tour to visit some of the most interesting start-up companies based in Tel Aviv!
(pardon me for getting emotional; the geek in me just can’t hold it any longer)
Keynote speaker: Dr. Eyal Shnarch
Topics that pique my interest…
I am looking forward to all of the insights that presenters are getting ready to share.
However, if I’d only had to pick a few, I would personally make sure to attend:
Dr. Shnarch’s Label Sleuth presentation (I am being told that’s an open-source, no-code system that enables anyone to create AI - how cool does that sound?);
Yahav’s Business Model Canvas for Legal Tech;
Kavalis’s BizDev for tech companies.
And I am certainly looking forward to getting to know the Tel Aviv start-up scene.

I enjoy meeting entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurial lawyers doubly so. Although by the dry definition, law firm partners are business owners or managers, still quite a lot of them take the path made by their predecessors. As they “inherit” the business, they might opt to stay in their lane. And then there are others, like Thomas […]
Litigation is expensive and, honestly, not without risk. Hence, many who would otherwise pursue enforcement of their rights fold, feeling the whole hassle "isn't worth it." Enter litigation finance, bringing together investors and those who have a legitimate claim. Litigation finance, or litigation funding, is the practice [...]
