The Asia-Pacific Legal Innovation and Technology Association (ALITA) and legal tech platform Theorem LTS today announce a partnership to develop ALITA’s new online membership portal.
The Theorem platform will power access to a legal tech marketplace with a suite of ready-to-use legal technology tools, shared vendor intelligence, and click-to-launch technology test drives for members of ALITA, the regional body for Asia’s legal innovation and technology ecosystem based out of Singapore. ALITA aims to use this portal as a one-stop platform for members to discover and experiment with new legal tech tools, and to gain access to these tools at exclusive rates.
“Enabling greater collaboration among legal industry stakeholders across the globe is one of Theorem’s top priorities–an essential piece in a more connected global legal technology offering. We couldn’t be more pleased that ALITA will partner with us to drive its new membership portal.” – Joshua Maley, Co-founder and CEO of Theorem LTS
ALITA’s newest offering, which will be available on an exclusive and voluntary basis for its members to sign up and use, is expected to be completely rolled out sometime later this year.
“Our promise from Day 1 has been clear: to connect, empower and enable the Asia-Pacific legal innovation and technology industry. We are pleased that Theorem shares ALITA’s aspirations — and are excited to see the unlimited possibilities our members can derive from our new membership portal to drive legal transformation, deliver quality services, and deepen access to justice for the region.” — Josh Lee Kok Thong and Lee Ji En, Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson of ALITA
This announcement promises to build upon the association’s aims to connect and coordinate the region’s legal technology initiatives and development. It will also complement ALITA’s suite of initiatives that provide the APAC legal industry with access to extensive legal technology data and guidance. These initiatives include:
The Legal Tech Observatory, which aims to be the world’s first real-time database of legal tech players and initiatives in the Asia-Pacific. The association receives input from a broad spectrum of legal tech actors–including several global law firms, legal departments, vendors, service providers and academic institutions with presence in the region.
Access to the state of development of legal technology in over 10 APAC jurisdictions through the “State of Legal Innovation in the Asia-Pacific” Report, which was first released at the Stanford CodeX conference in April 2019 and is now in its third edition.
The ALITA sponsored Legal Innovation Strategy Toolkit, which provides guidance to leaders of legal innovation on how to develop and plan their jurisdiction’s legal innovation strategy.
“We’re excited to assist organizations like ALITA in building regional ecosystems to develop, promote and distribute the future of law. Partnering with ALITA to enable the offering of its very own Theorem ecosystem represents yet another important step towards our commitment to building a secure and scalable framework for legal tech distribution, while enabling access to unique data insights, enhanced standards, and plug-and-play transactional adoption of legal technology that helps firms better serve their clients” –Joshua Maley.
ALITA is a regional legal technology association uniting the Asia-Pacific with a single purpose: to drive collaboration in legal innovation and technology in the region. With a membership base of 200 member organizations including top global law firms, legal technology companies, in-house departments of leading companies, research institutions, public institutions and civic society groups, ALITA is young but increasingly prominent rallying force for the Asia-Pacific legal technology industry. ALITA’s mission is three-fold:
To promote the development and use of legal technology, as well as to advance thought leadership in the field of legal technology, in APAC;
To support local legal technology associations by providing guidance and expertise in the creation and operation of local legal technology associations;
To enhance connections and collaboration between governments, law firms, technology companies and communities, and in so doing, generate opportunities and build a future-ready, innovative, and technologically-advanced APAC legal industry.
ALITA’s signature initiatives thus far include its State of Legal Innovation in the Asia-Pacific (SOLIA) Reports, its first-in-Asia Legal Innovation Strategy Toolkit, and its first-in-the-world Legal Technology Observatory.
