‘Disruption’ is what new-tech is largely about and it’s the same with law-tech. As AI and other tech developments continue to challenge the old-style legal market, one of the largest ‘players’ in the legal world is actively seeking disrupters in the legal market to help.
Slaughter and May are seeking any “exciting new product” that could “disrupt or redefine legal services.”
The firm’s ‘Collaborate’ legal tech programme seeks “innovators and entrepreneurs in the legal tech sector.
We want to collaborate with the brightest minds in this space – to help you develop, test and expand your product. If you are accepted onto our programme you will receive access to the right people, data and resources to help your product grow.”
The firm’s Collaborate project and their law tech blog identifies what is happening in the legal tech marketplace, as well as actively seeking to play a role in what is happening.
Old Law may be firms like S&M, but it is New Law that is exciting some of them, too. And with their legal and financial firepower, there is an opportunity for lawyers and entrepreneurs alike to play a role in the new law marketplace.
