Australia-founded legal technology start-up Josef has expanded into the United States, following its launching in the UK and Europe last year.
In September 2021, Josef broadened its presence to the United Kingdom and Europe, and now, it has launched in the US.
With a US-based team, the start-up said in a statement, Josef can “better serve existing US customers, and continue to expand their already-global services and products into new teams and new territories”.
Josef chief executive Tom Dreyfus said: “Since my time studying at Columbia Law School, I have had a deep respect for both the legal system and the legal industry in the United States.
“Josef has always been a global company, and we’ve been fortunate to attract US customers from day one. We are excited to expand our capacity in the US to better support and drive our product’s success and our partnerships with our clients.”
Looking ahead, Mr Dreyfus continued, Josef sees “endless” possibilities to grow its offering and relationships with US-based law firms.
“We are confident that we will be able to improve our technology and our offerings to better streamline the work of attorneys across the globe,” he said.
Josef chief operating officer and co-founder Sam Flynn added that the company had always had its sights set on legal tech’s global opportunity.
“Our focus has always been on transforming the way legal services are delivered, and making them more accessible for all,” he said.
“Our global expansion has always been a key part of that mission. Josef is already in use by global firms and clients, with many located in the United States, and we are committed to growing our value and delivering the best of our platform to attorneys throughout the US.”
This time last year, Mr Flynn penned an opinion piece in Lawyers Weekly arguing that the legal tech, innovation and design community needs to come together to establish itself as a serious alternative career pathway for law students.
