Earlier this year, Barclays and the the Law Society launched an incubator to "super-charge" London's law-tech ecosystem. Swedish contract automation innovators Precisely recently announced the company will join the lab.
Precisely - previously covered here and here - joins Barclays’ London based Eagle Lab in partnership with the Law Society at Notting Hill Gate.
- Being a member of the Lab gives us access to mentors, academics and legal industry practitioners as well as access to an extensive LawTech events programme, workshops and meet-ups. Several leading law firms, such as Latham & Watkins, Allen & Overy, Baker McKenzie, and Clyde & Co, have joined the programme as partners to provide industry insight and an inspiring, collaborative community of LawTech businesses.
– London’s LawTech scene is at the very forefront of the world – and Eagle Labs brings together the best in the industry. We are incredibly excited to increase our presence in the UK and to turn even more people into contract champions, says Simon Fouladi, Co-Founder & COO of Precisely.
– “We’re delighted to have Precisely as residents of Eagle Lab in partnership with the Law Society and look forward to working with them and helping their business grow, says Jon Hope, Eagle Lab Director.
