StructureFlow, a platform which helps lawyers and clients quickly and easily visualise complex legal structures and transactions, has won a further 4-6 month development opportunity with Slaughter and May. This comes after its success at the firm’s Collaborate Demo Day. Organised by Slaughter and May, this Demo Day was a way for the firm to present its first-ever Collaborate cohort to a wider audience.
Each of the six companies accepted as part of the first cohort presented their ‘elevator pitch’ to an audience of client in-house teams, tech suppliers as well as the firm’s employees. Then, the audience selected the three presentations to progress to a final round.
Unlike the previous round, in this round, the three finalists were asked to answer a separate question by a panel of judges.
The panel comprised Nilufer von Bismarck, Partner at Slaughter and May; Alex Woods, Director of Knowledge and Information at Slaughter and May; Andrew Yorston, Head of Legal and Compliance at Vodafone; and Catherine Bamford, a legal engineer, document automation and workflow design specialist.
Finally, on the basis of the presentation and the answer to the question posed, the panel ultimately decided that StructureFlow was the most impressive cohort member on the day, citing its ability to take complex issues and deal with them in an intuitive way.
‘Collaborate’ cohort members include:
- Tabled, a platform which helps lawyers manage tasks and projects by automating workflows and assigning tasks to team members;
- Clarilis, a document automation tool for complex legal documents without needing to amend existing precedents or templates first;
- JUST: Access, a transcription and dictation solution using AI and natural language processing in order to produce transcripts and related analysis;
- Logiak, a tool which allows users with no coding experience in order to create complex logic and rule-based systems; and
- LitiGate, an AI-powered litigation platform which uncovers hidden insights and provides a bird’s eye view of each case. Also, it automates day-to-day tasks.
“The quality of the presentations from all the companies taking part gave the panel a tough decision to make. Congratulations though must go to StructureFlow, who just pipped the other companies to the prize. Their pitch was presented in a very clear and compelling way.”Nilufer von Bismarck, Partner at Slaughter and May
“We’re absolutely delighted to have won and we are very much looking forward to continuing our journey with Slaughter and May. In order to get a product to fly, you need to understand how people use it and working with Slaughter and May has helped significantly in this respect.”Tim Follett, founder and CEO of StructureFlow
“We wanted Demo Day to be a real opportunity for these companies. They were all highly impressive. We have enjoyed working with this cohort alongside our clients. It’s also a very exciting time for legal tech and we’re very much looking forward to continuing playing our part in supporting the burgeoning community.”Jane Stewart, Head of Innovation at Slaughter and May
“Working alongside Slaughter and May on Collaborate has given us a great window into the legal tech start-up community. In addition, it has been invaluable to assess what type of platform might add value to a big multi-national in-house legal team like us.”Lyle Ellis, Senior IPR Manager at Vodafone, and member of the Collaborate client panel
