This year’s LawTex Expo was held at Sydney’s Swissotel on 17 November 2011. It is a single day event where legal technology providers showcase their products and services at stands and also give presentations in an adjoining conference room.

Two ‘big name’ suppliers attending were ADERANT and Nuix. There were also impressive offerings from less well-known suppliers:
