In all my years of overlaying authorized tech, a query I’ve by no means needed to confront is the way to — and even whether or not to — cowl my opponents. However now that I’ve launched a enterprise of my very own, the LawNext Authorized Know-how Listing, that’s the awkward query I confronted as Nicola Shaver, CEO and cofounder of LegalTech Hub, gave me a heads-up on some notable information.
The reply, after all, is to cowl it, simply as I might cowl another authorized tech information.
The information is that LegalTech Hub has acquired LegalTech Jobs, a website for posting job openings in authorized know-how, and can incorporate it into its listing. As of this morning, the roles website has already been reskinned with LegalTech Hub’s branding.
Based as a facet mission in 2020 by Belgium innovation marketing consultant Daan Vansimpsen, LegalTech Jobs lists profession alternatives in authorized know-how. Previous to the acquisition, employers might publish jobs at no cost or buy most well-liked listings.
Now, distributors that buy enhanced profiles on LegalTech Hub will be capable to publish limitless job openings on LegalTech Jobs, Shaver mentioned. Different employers will be capable to publish at no cost for a restricted time, after which they are going to be charged an as-yet unspecified price to publish.
Shaver mentioned that LegalTech Hub and LegalTech Jobs had been working collectively since 2020 and that, after relaunching her website in March, “it made sense to affix forces with the most important authorized tech jobs website to change into the vacation spot for everybody who’s critical about Legaltech.”
“We’re proud to have collaborated with Daan and to be incorporating his implausible useful resource,” Shaver mentioned. “We sit up for working with Daan in an advisory function as he pursues his profession as a digital transformation strategist.”
Shaver launched LegalTech Hub in October 2020. Earlier this 12 months, Jeroen Plink, former CEO of Clifford Likelihood Utilized Options and earlier of Sensible Regulation U.S., joined the corporate as cofounder and chief working officer.
