We all know what innovation looks like in the world of Big Tech. There’s Amazon. Apple. Spotify. These titans of disruption have built powerful technology and designed sleek products that have transformed daily life as we know it.
Yet the legal world has hardly changed at all. The inner workings of the courts remain old-fashioned and needlessly complex. The profession has an acute lack of useful resources. And the cost to hire a lawyer is still wildly unpredictable. If we want to solve these stubborn problems, we can’t rely on an outside saviour. We’re on our own.
We’re also totally up to the challenge. Look no further than the winners of this year’s Precedent Innovation Awards. These thoughtful lawyers have democratized access to legal information, helped clients afford their services and developed bespoke software that streamlines the most cumbersome legal tasks. Want to know how they achieved all that? Meet the winners below.
