The legal industry is a big business – around $700 billion big. It’s also gone a remarkably long time without any major disruption, and we’re excited to bring a long overdue update. We’re building a new category of tech-forward professional services, rewriting the story of who does the work in the legal industry and taking the business of law to a new standard.
We work with in-house legal teams at some of the most innovative companies in the world across various sectors – financial services, life sciences, energy, technology, entertainment & media, consumer products and more – to help solve their most pressing challenges.
