How Lawbotics came about
While working as a business lawyer, Merete Nygaard always thought about the inaccessibility of law for most people being unfair, as the law should be the foundation of the society, defining rules in everyday living. She always believed that the routine work which leads to the billing of hours in law firms is inefficient, and she found the sharing of legal knowledge to be inadequate.
Nygaard wanted to do something to change this and streamline the workflow around legal documents, so she decided to build a platform that will enable colleagues to easily share knowledge that will teach legal documents creators to work more efficient and transparent. She started Lawbotics in 2017, together with co-founder Alexander Schwantes.
Lawbotics has developed an innovative tool called LEXOLVE to streamline parts of the legal processes that take place in all companies – namely the creation of legal contracts and other documents. By letting legal experts automate their own legal documents using our software, we make it easy for businesses to increase the quality of their legal documents while saving a significant amount of time and resources.
Lawbotics’ ultimate goal is to make legal work more efficient, transparent, and accessible to all types of companies and organizations, to be used within all jurisdictions.
