Just a few years ago, a large law firm by the name of Dentons realized the coming changes that an overlap between technology and law might create, and wanted to get ahead of the game. As a result, Dentons created Nextlaw Labs with the vision of reinventing the practice of law using technology. As a subsidiary of Nextlaw Labs, Nextlaw Ventures emerged, which is an early-stage, legal-focused venture fund that invests in a variety of legal tech companies.
As the CEO and Managing Director of Nextlaw Ventures, Dan Jansen discusses just a few of the 10 legal tech companies currently in their fund, including ROSS Intelligence, which is an expert legal, research-driven tool that leverages AI to answer legal questions and create legal memos. Jansen believes that this technology will have a democratizing effect on the practice of law by allowing small firms to find the answers to complex questions that, otherwise, only larger firms might have the ability to answer.
