Why a legal tech association?

  • Innovative business models in the legal market are severely restricted by strict regulation
  • Law firms, other legal service providers and stakeholders are prevented from developing new consulting or business models based on different legal foundations
  • Legal tech has no common voice and platform in Germany

Our goal:

Bridging the perceived gap between the legal profession and legal tech ventures inside and outside law firms.

We advocate for this in politics and in exchange with the relevant players.
