The LEGAL REVOLUTION Expo & Congress, Europe’s leading and fastest-growing exhibition and congress for legal and compliance topics, will be held for the first time in Nuremberg in May 2022. Part of the new cooperation between NürnbergMesse and the event organiser LEGAL (R)EVOLUTION GmbH is a future annual event in the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre with the goal of growing it further and establishing it permanently as an exhibition brand in Nuremberg. Since 2017, the exhibition has been organised in Frankfurt by LEGAL (R)EVOLUTION GmbH. Dr Jochen Brandhoff, Founder and Managing Director of LEGAL (RE)VOLUTION, is pleased with the new partnership: “In NürnbergMesse, we have found the ideal partner in Bavaria, given its extensive know-how in developing young trade fairs into leading exhibitions. Besides, Nuremberg is located exactly between the two legal hot spots of Frankfurt and Munich, which have the most lawyers in Germany: That too is a real added benefit!” Dr Roland Fleck, CEO of NürnbergMesse Group, is likewise delighted with this latest addition: “The growth of LEGAL (R)EVOLUTION is impressive. In just a few years, it has developed into the leading event for legal and compliance topics in Europe. Together, we want to tap the full potential in every stage of the legal services value chain!” His CEO colleague Peter Ottmann added: “Top-level exhibitors, workshops and coaching sessions will deliver not only an excellent networking platform for decision-makers in the legal and compliance market, but especially also a memorable visitor experience thanks to the many accompanying events!”

The LEGAL REVOLUTION Expo & Congress combines a trade fair for services and IT solutions in every stage of the value chain of legal and compliance services with a top-level congress for legal and compliance tech and digital economy law. In only three years, LEGAL REVOLUTION has become the largest exhibition and congress for legal departments, compliance departments, and commercial law firms in continental Europe.  

The digital version LEGAL LIVE, which begins this Tuesday in Frankfurt, will feature high-ranking representatives of the Bavarian state government such as State Minister of Justice Georg Eisenreich and State Minister for Digital Affairs Judith Gerlach, as well as Dr Thomas Dickert, President of the Nuremberg Higher Regional Court.

With other products besides the digital and in-person events, the e‑magazine LRZ - Recht in der digitalen Wirtschaft and the LEGAL REVOLUTION Business Club, LEGAL (R)EVOLUTION GmbH is the first one-stop shop for the marketing of products in the German legal market.
