ABOUT THE COMPANY
Legal OS’s platform enables lawyers to automate legal services. Their library of machine-readable content allows lawyers to deliver digital contracts to their clients and embed important data into the tools they use every day.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Legal OS met HV in spring 2018 at a 15 minute Q&A organised by the TU University. Legal OS was a team of four, pre-product with a bold vision of tuning law into code. Keeping a careful eye on their progress, HV was suitably impressed and invested a year later. Working together, HV supported them to ground their vision with a clear value proposition and definition of their market. The exponential growth of information technology has transformed our lives. The way we bank, shop and communicate is digital. But until now, the way we do law has remained unchanged. The expertise required to understand and analyze a contract has prevented technology from automating legal processes. Legal OS can change that by making law itself computable and establishing a new paradigm within which legal services can scale exponentially.
"GOING INTO THIS AS FIRST-TIME FOUNDERS, WE COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER PARTNER. HV HAS BEEN INCREDIBLY SUPPORTIVE – CHALLENGING US TO BE BETTER WHILE WATCHING OUT FOR OUR WELL-BEING. ABOVE ALL, HV HAS CONTINUED TO BELIEVE IN AND CHAMPION OUR VISION."
Legal OS’s goal is to build an engine that turns law into code and helps create a brand new infrastructure for the 21st century. By enabling third parties to build products that leverage laws into coding and data, Legal OS aims to create better legal services for lawyers and non-lawyers alike. In the last year, Legal OS has built a strong team of 20 engineers, product designers and legal professionals. After launching in early 2020, Legal OS has established strong partnerships with top tier law-firms and legal departments, like Bombardier Transportation, Mazars and BMH Bräutigam, in Germany and Europe. Legal OS is currently working on a second generation legal engine that is designed to model arbitrarily complex legal data. This modelled data will be transformed into highly computable knowledge graphs, forming a digital infrastructure for legal services.
