LawServ is a unique platform focused on bringing together the legal ecosystem from across the region for networking, relationship building and knowledge exchange. Curated after extensive research with legal services providers and in-house counsel the focus of LawServ is to connect buyers of legal services with a wide variety of solution providers such as law firms, recruitment agencies, law schools, risk and compliance companies, technology providers and beyond to help buyers manage their budgets and vendors more effectively.
LawServ becomes your opportunity in a busy world to witness the showcasing of cutting edge services and solutions alongside our “Theatre Sessions” where you take part in our knowledge exchanges and understand how to tackle some of the critical business challenges impacting buyers of legal services today.
From our recent extensive research and personal interviews with GCs in India, IDEX Legal and Thomson Reuters have derived the following findings which are highlighted in The General Counsel Benchmarking Report 2018:
GCs have a legal budget in excess of 2cr
GCs are pro-liberalisation and welcome the entry of international law firms in India
GCs have shifted some legal matters to smaller law firms over the last year
Of GCs would prefer to see the rise of more specialist boutique lawyers in India
What our research with GCs and in a separate report with law firms is showing us is that the legal services industry is undergoing significant changes and the pace of that change is not slowing down. Legal professionals are no longer debating the need for change, but instead looking at ways to incorporate changes to stay relevant and up-to-date with creative and innovative trends to sail through the conventional complexities.
And hence IDEX’s launch of LawServ which is the legal community’s opportunity to meet, network, and source suppliers who can offer solutions to the challenges being faced by buyers of legal services in today’s complex environment.
LawServ will also host theatre sessions featuring speakers who will be joined by IDEX Legal’s international consultants coming together to collaborate and share ideas on how to pursue innovation and create positive change in the legal industry.Why you should attend

“As a UK based consultant who is relatively new to the Indian legal services market, LawServ was a fantastic opportunity to connect with a wide range of domestic Indian law firms and corporates.
The quality of visitors of the event was high – many decision makers. I would be delighted to participate in future such events and believe that IDEX has hit on a great format with this initiative.”
As a speaker at LawServ 2016, I had the opportunity to speak on “The biggest challenges faced by the legal fraternity on managing Company Risks & Compliances". The session was packed with senior in-house counsels from various MNCs and it was inspiring delivering a session in front of an expert audience. Being a corporate lawyer speaking at the event, it was a combination of relevance, networking, relationship building, experience and obviously business opportunity. It was simply great!"
“P&C Legal as a firm has had a long standing relationship with IDEX, having won the “IDEX Startup Law firm of the Year” in 2013. Our theater session was made more satisfying by the fact that we had a full house of enthusiastic GCs, Counsels and Legal practioners who whilst attending the session also wholeheartedly provided their valuable input and experience on the subject of Negotiated M&A. It was not only an exercise in networking as law expo’s often are but also an addition and consolidation of the collective knowledge of the highly seasoned audience. It was a pleasure partnering with IDEX on this event and we look forward to future collaborations.”
