Through its legal tech subsidiary, Quointec LLC, Actuate Law will develop legal expert systems and other tools that automate the delivery of legal and compliance services, the company said. Neota has already partnered with several law firms in this way, for example Allen & Overy has worked with Neota to build a suite of financial services tech tools for its AOSphere group.
Actuate Law was founded by a group of Big Law veterans and is based in Chicago, operating on the basis that tech will be an integral part of their offering to clients.
Jeffrey Sharer, Chief Innovation Counsel at Actuate Law said: ‘Prior to joining Actuate Law I worked extensively with the Neota platform and knew the value of automating expertise for clients. Actuate Law was founded to break molds, and using Neota, we’re able to put fact-specific legal advice at clients’ fingertips, 24/7/365, empowering them to ‘self-serve’ in most circumstances and to escalate to counsel where complexity or nuance warrant. It’s a powerful combination and we look forward to building a multitude of solutions on the Neota platform.’
Kim Massana, CEO, Americas at Neota, added: ‘We’re delighted to be working with Actuate Law. Over the past few years, Neota has been transforming the legal industry by enabling them to deliver the widest access to expertise, for the least amount of resources, in the fastest time frame possible.’
