“I think it’s the start of the journey, from the start up side and the law firm side”

On this episode we meet Jimmy Vestbirk, founder of Legal Geek, a LawTech startup community with over 6000 members, hosting an eponymous annual conference which sees legal technology enthusiasts from around the globe converging in London to meet, learn and discuss the latest ideas advancing the legal industry. Legal Geek also runs ‘Law For Good’, a program that provides technical support to legal charities through activities such as hackathons, including the recent Online Courts Hackathon for the UK Government. Jimmy’s diverse experience includes a portfolio of online dating sites and more recently co-founding paralegal matching platform, Flex.
