The legal profession is in an exciting period of rapid change. Globalisation, economic forces, and advancements in technology are changing the way law is practised.

Clients are seeking innovative solutions to an increasingly broad range of legal and business challenges. They also want greater connectivity and streamlined delivery of legal services.

This presents an enormous opportunity for startups and entrepreneurs to work with lawyers and their clients to design new technology solutions. In a rapidly expanding market, lawtech is a key emerging sector and Australia is well-placed to take a leading role.

To support the growth of startups developing lawtech solutions, contemporary Australian law firm Lander & Rogers has partnered with YBF Ventures by creating Australia’s first dedicated LawTech Hub. Rather than just an accelerator program, the LawTech Hub has a permanent on-site presence at YBF Ventures in the Melbourne and Sydney CBDs. The Hub sits alongside other startups in fintech, insurtech, agtech, and other sectors.

The LawTech Hub provides an immersive experience within a vibrant startup community. The residents access the vast networks, experience, and expertise of Lander & Rogers as they solve real legal and business challenges.
