    “In a law firm, everybody has a DNA saying: ‘you’ve get to the get the right answer, you’ve got go above and beyond all times to serve the client.’ But that clashes with a world where you’re trying to make and build things that have never been done before.”

    The team from Clifford Chance Applied Solutions share their reflections on building a Legal Tech company as a subsidiary of a Magic Circle law firm. How does the culture of a startup mesh with the culture of a law firm? How can that startup leverage resources from the wider firm while staying nimble and delivering a distinctive product? And, how can that startup keep looking at the big picture and try to innovate while being able to deliver detailed and quality products for clients?
