COLUMBIA, SC – McAngus Goudelock & Courie (MGC), a regional insurance defense firm, is pleased to share that Charleston attorneys Ryan AdamsMark Davis and John Stroud, and Columbia attorney Jason Lockhart, will be speaking at the University of South Carolina School of Law’s Legaltech Seminar Series on January 27.

“In an ever-changing legal marketplace, innovation is critical in order to meet client needs and improve client services,” says the presenting team. “This presentation will highlight the genesis of MGC’s innovation program, known as The Insurance Defense Incubator, provide an update on the projects that have arisen from the program and discuss the ethical implications of the intersection between law and technology.”

Recognizing that ideas and change can be found within any level of the organization, MGC extended an innovation challenge to their attorneys in the fall of 2017. Spearheaded by Davis and Lockhart, The Insurance Defense Incubator tasked the firm to develop ideas that would improve processes, increase efficiencies and lead to enhanced client service. In response, 18 attorneys pitched their ideas and three projects were selected by the evaluating team with the goal to develop a deliverable product and/or service over the next year.

The School of Law’s Academic Technology department, along with the Technology Law Students Association (TLSA), present the Legaltech Seminar Series on how technology affects the law. The series features guest lecturers who are professionals in various legal technology fields. To register for this seminar, please visit the University of South Carolina’s website.
