More information on the panelists:
Nicholas d’Adhemar, the founder and CEO of Apperio, spent 6 years working as a lawyer and 3 years client-side in private equity. He experienced deals firsthand, which completed but were then followed by months of disputes over fees and invoices. He found that regularly sharing fee information between law firms and their clients significantly improved working relationships. The fewer the surprises, the happier the client. From this simple idea, Apperio was born. Apperio enables you to track your legal spend at an overall or matter level, in real time. With simple, intuitive interface, you instantly gain meaningful insight into your legal spend.

Richard Mabey, CEO of Juro, trained as a Corporate lawyer with Freshfields before an INSEAD MBA and a stint in Product at LegalZoom. Richard spends an unnatural amount of time thinking about legal contracts. The main outlet for this is Juro, a Seedcamp-backed startup that offers a contracts workflow underpinned by blockchain. Juro saves businesses time and money on legal contracts by automating repeat processes (creation, signing, storage), while offering a quick, robust and delightful way to agree terms with your valued stakeholders. Richard speaks regularly on LegalTech.
Daniel van Binsbergen is the CEO and co-founder of www.Lexoo.co.uk – an online legal marketplace connecting businesses to specialised prescreened lawyers. Lexoo is backed by Forward Partners, an early stage VC firm based in Hoxton. Prior to founding Lexoo, Daniel worked for over 5 years as a finance and M&A lawyer at an international law firm (De Brauw), first in Amsterdam, then in London. He’s always up for a game of squash, and is easily excited.
Free ticket here.
The event will be held at Campus London. While this is aimed at startup founders, please feel free to bring other members of your team along.
Looking forward to seeing you there & if you are a startup in the Legal sector applying, best of luck!
