In July 2017 we reported on a well-funded (US$10.5m), secretive venture whose aim was to revolutionise legal services and transform the delivery of corporate legal services. The venture was centered in San Francisco however technology revolutions tend to cross national borders very quickly.
Those who were expecting ground-breaking technology probably felt an anti-climax when it was recently revealed that a new law firm had been created.
The law firm, named Atrium appears to have quickly gained a following amongst the Silicon Valley startup community. The head of Atrium LTS, (LTS = Legal Technology Services) the technology part of the venture, is renowned entrepreneur Justin Kan. He describes himself as an “involuntary power user of legal services.”
Atrium, the law firm, utilities the technology produced by Atrium LTS. It is this technology which we are likely to hear a lot more about in the future.
Justin Kan was interviewed at the recent TechCrunch Disrupt SF conference – video below. The interview starts at the 1 hour 18 minute mark. Press Play and it will start at that point.
