What is SOLID?
SOLID is a TED Talk style summit focused on innovation and the business of law. Did you ever listen to a great SOLID Talk or panel and wish you had time to engage and brainstorm in real time on how to apply those ideas to your business? 14 speakers will give TED-style talks around the intersection of innovation, advanced technology and the business of law. They share what they are doing, how they are doing it, and the business impact it has.
Our talks are followed by facilitated table talks, sprint panels, and town hall discussions, whereby participants discuss what they know now that they did not know before the session started and how to apply these lessons to their own organizations. SOLID provides participants with maximum interaction with peers and colleagues in a round table, workshop environment to assess current challenges and design concrete solutions.

"Solid is unique in size, format and quality of participants and presenters. I met so many talented professionals, given the intimate setting I was able to collaborate with others who shared similar challenges, was inspired by the innovative ways others approach them and gained strategic insight into emerging capabilities that I could bring back and apply. It’s a great forum to expand your insights into innovative approaches that are driving real improvements for how corporations deliver legal services. It’s not your ordinary conference if you want to engage in a thought provoking learning experience while expanding your network I would highly recommend it."- Deb Tatar, VP Corporate Systems at MetLife
"If you can attend this, I highly recommend it! Compliance Discovery Solutions was at SOLID East last month in NYC. The format allows for an exchange of ideas with a variety of legal professionals. In one day, I felt like I learned as much or more as I’ve learned from multi-day conferences!"- Maria Maccarone, Vice President, Client Solutions at Compliance Discovery Solutions
"Before SOLID I would say I was a bit of an accidental innovator. I was naturally interested in looking for new and better ways to structure and manage my legal department and spend, but I was not aware of the incredible depth of knowledge out there about how to do that most effectively. SOLID brought all of the pieces together for me and allowed me to make lasting connections with others who are innovating within their teams and across the legal industry. I now have a much deeper understanding of how to draw upon a wide array of resources and technology to reshape what we are doing in a way that drives more value for less total spend. It’s also just a really fun and interesting group of people and the whole experience has expanded my circle of go-to colleagues."
- Jennifer Warner, VP Legal at Columbia Sportswear Company
"I think the most valuable thing for me has been the chance to collaborate with, but also to listen to clients. Getting to hear first hand from GC’s and the C-Suite about their pain points and expectations is truly valuable. It really helps us to “sense check” and to ensure we are not only listening, but hearing and acting on what our clients expect and need from their outside counsel."
- Bryant Isbell, Managing Director, Global eDiscovery & Data Advisory at Baker & McKenzie, LLP
