Richard Kemp is regarded as one of the world’s leading IT lawyers. He has been at the apex of law and technology since the 1980s and, with his colleagues at Kemp IT Law, continues to advise legal businesses and technology companies on the selection, procurement and use of IT.

Spiranti caught up with Richard to discuss the impact IT has on a changing legal market.

Milan Dalal of the Brook Intelligence Centre has a long history of helping professional services firms innovate and manage change.  He has been a close observer of innovation and the changing technology landscape and he shares with Spiranti his thoughts.

Israel is the world’s start-up nation. It boasts the highest number of start-up businesses per capita, with one start-up for every 1,400 people.
