Are we a law firm?
Clearly no. Our services are ancillary to traditional legal advice.
Are we a funding platform?
No. We help connect LegalTech tools with end-users, but do not provide financial or investment advice.
Our LegalTech consulting team is a multidisciplinary task force. We help corporate legal departments and law firms in Central Eastern Europe (CEE) succeed on their digital transformation journey.

- enable preferential access to pilot and implement tools from our LegalTech Marketplace;
- offer workshops and roadmaps;
- help combine traditional and innovative legal solutions to enable increasingly value-added legal services; and
- team up with legal teams for strategic implementation projects.
