Delaware Valley
Legal Expo 2020 -
A True Gamechanger
A

little more than a quarter century ago, representatives of
the Independence Chapter of the Association of Legal
Administrators and Montgomery Bar Association met
to plant a seed that everyone in the region's legal community
could one day benefit from. Included in the mix would be
law partners, associates, solos, legal administrators, paralegals,
purchasing and IT personnel, key office staff, and those who
provide products and services to attorneys, law offices, and
legal departments. Goals were to provide a welcoming forum
for face-to-face networking, product demonstrations; and, to
bridge common gaps between those who buy, use, and supply
products and services for the betterment of law practices and the

anniversary event. With health concerns, limits on large
gatherings, and uncertainty forcing event cancelations across the
globe, it seemed for a while that this year's Expo may be forced
to follow suit. Had it not been for a collective outcry from
several managing partners, solo attorneys, legal administrators,
and industry suppliers, that may have been the case. It was soon
clear that emerging practice models, widespread office closures,
practicing remotely, and other fallout from the global health
crises have contributed to a swell of new interest and demand
for products and services from area law offices and professionals.
Meanwhile, face-to-face opportunities have also been hard
to come by in 2020 for suppliers who have come to depend
on trade shows and in-person office visits for lead generation,
networking, product demos, writing orders, interacting with
clients and prospects, and even interviewing. Given the
