Scottish legal tech startups lined up for LawtechUK launch event in Edinburgh

FOUR leading legal tech startups have been lined up for the LawtechUK launch event in Edinburgh on Thursday 18th May.  Intellectual Property specialist Alta IP, compliance fintech Amiqus, employment law platform Valla, and Exizent, a company developing technology to support the bereavement process, will pitch to investors and industry leaders from the lawtech community via a hybrid online and in-person event. 

In March, CodeBase, along with partners LegalGeek, was awarded the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) Lawtech grant, worth up to £3 million over two years.  The LawtechUK programme is aimed at supporting the UK’s position as a world-leading destination for legal services and the growth of lawtech and innovation in the delivery of legal services. 

The MoJ sees the growth of lawtech and innovation in the delivery of legal services as vital to a flourishing legal sector, and to ensuring that UK legal services remain a leading choice for international business.   

CodeBase and LegalGeek are now responsible for driving forward and building on the work of the lawtech Delivery Panel, an industry-led body designed to promote and champion the use of technology in the UK’s legal sector.

Speakers at next week’s free event include Martin Boyle and Jon Hope from CodeBase, Jimmy Vestbirk and Beth Fellner from LegalGeek, and Bal Singh and Liam Angus from Barclays Eagle Labs. 

With the in-person proceedings taking place at CodeBase in Edinburgh, the event will include networking for startups, industry leaders, investors, and other members of the legal community.  

Martin Boyle, VP of Transformation at CodeBase, said: “The event is open to our entire network, and anyone interested in learning more about LawtechUK.  Whether you’re a startup founder, legal professional, investor, government, student, or just interested, everyone is welcome.  The opportunity will be to learn more about the UK government’s support for lawtech innovation, and to hear valuable insights from industry leaders.”
