I started compiling a list of Legaltech founders to shed light on who builds what.

I hope this list is the beginning of a larger effort to connect founders, enable collaboration, and come up with new ideas on how we can support each other. Dr. Petra Arends-Paltzer is the founder and organizer of the Davos Digital Forum and Swiss Legal Tech in Zurich.

In addition, she is intensively involved in legal thinking and visualization techniques, such as graphic recording and sketching. She is also a founding member of the Hamburg chapter of Legal Hackers.

Legal technology guru Bob Ambrogi called 2017 “the Year of Women in Legal Technology.” We can only agree with that. Last year, for the first time, the ABA TECHSHOW faculty roster included more women than men. not to mention the plethora of women-led companies and startups that participated in TECHSHOW EXPO Hall and Startup Alley!
