Jameson Legal Tech Brings in Betty Blocks as New Consortium Member

Betty Blocks, the no-code process automation company, has joined Jameson Legal Tech as the consortium’s ninth member. The Jameson group is one of just two consortia of this type, the other is US-based LexFusion.

The members of the Jameson group are now:

  • Linksquares
  • Contractbook
  • CoParse
  • Betty Blocks
  • New Banking Identity
  • Everchron
  • ClauseBase
  • NEXL
  • Kudocs

Jon Bartman, Head of Jameson Legal Tech in London, told Artificial Lawyer: ‘We researched this market very hard and found the functionality and ease of use of Betty Blocks really set it apart from their competitors. We have been having dozens of conversations with clients regarding the subject of automation of processes and saw this as a key area in which we needed to source the right solution. 

‘A significant part of our decision-making process in partnering with legal tech companies revolves around finding legal tech founders with a great product and huge ambition surrounding growth. The team at Betty Blocks clearly have genuine ambition to grow and lead in the no-code space.’

Meanwhile, Chris Obdam, CEO of Betty Blocks, commented: ‘The passion of Jameson Legal Tech is fantastic, they have outstanding key relationships with so many of our target firms and, working on a clear strategy to align with our goals was instrumental in signing the agreement to work together.

Betty Blocks has a market leading solution and we are expanding rapidly into the legal space. With the help of Jameson Legal Tech we hope to facilitate our ambitious plans for growth.’

As noted, legal tech consortia are a relatively rare thing still, and Jameson is all the more unique as it has grown out of a legal and legal tech recruitment business under the same Jameson brand.

For its part, LexFusion is also growing and recently added publicly listed eDiscovery company DISCO to its group. It remains unclear whether fellow eDiscovery company, HaystackID, is staying inside the LexFusion consortium.

Meanwhile, at the end of 2021, Betty Blocks also joined legal tech purchasing and implementation platform Reynen Court.
