Australian law firm Lander & Rogers has announced the five startups in its fifth cohort of the LawTech Hub program.
Three Australian legal tech startups are joined by one from London and another from New York, following a four-month hunt.
Lander & Rogers Chief Executive Partner Genevieve Collins said that over the next six months, the companies will further develop their products which span emerging technologies including AI, machine learning and process automation.
“The entire firm is excited to welcome five new residents to this year’s LawTech Hub program. Disruption in the legal industry is at its prime and I’m incredibly proud that we’ve been nurturing the world’s most promising entrepreneurs since launching the LawTech Hub in 2019,” she said
“This year is especially exciting as we align one of our key firm strategies to the hub—our commitment to the environment. Lander & Rogers is on track to be carbon neutral by this June and at the forefront of carbon accounting in Australia’s legal industry.”
Collins said the startups will be able to pilot their projects and gain access to the vast networks, experience, and expertise of Lander & Rogers. The program runs until October.
