Leading Irish law firm Matheson is embracing a digital future for its “Smart Week”, running from 13-17 June.
During Smart Week, the firm will promote tech best practice and highlight the tech innovations that are pivotal in providing best-in-class legal services to clients across all sectors.
As part of the Smart Week initiative, Matheson will host a Tech Forum, with keynote addresses on business innovation with guest speakers from Microsoft, Airbnb and Daqri, and a panel discussion.

Speaking at the launch of Smart Week, Rebecca Ryan, Partner at Matheson, said that for law firms to remain competitive in the future, the adoption of new software and innovation tools is essential.
Matheson, headquartered in Dublin with offices in London, New York and Palo Alto, employ over 600 people in Dublin. The firm advise seven of the top 10 global technology brands and over half of the world’s 50 largest banks.
“Today’s digital age generates a huge amount of data. Processing it, and turning it into useful information to build a case, can use up a significant amount of resources, particularly time. Thankfully, there are a number of tools that lawyers can use to make this process much more efficient, boost their overall productivity in the process, and deliver better results for clients.
Matheson recognises the importance of keeping pace with the rapid forward march of technology. This Smart Week, we want to highlight the most powerful innovations in the industry and the experts pioneering their use and integration into organisation operations.”
Matheson has a long history of technology firsts. It was the first Dublin law firm to establish an IT Law Practice Group and it remains the one and only Irish law firm with a presence in Silicon Valley, where a large number of its tech clients are headquartered; the firm’s Palo Alto office celebrated its twentieth birthday this year.
