This week I spoke to Giles Thompson, Head of Growth at Avvoka.
A lawyer by trade (formerly Kirkland & Ellis and Herbert Smith Freehills) he is now a tech investor and entrepreneur.
He has a degree in political science and as the son of a farmer, also thinks of himself as an agriculturalist and foodie.
Giles is excited by the future of legal tech and document automation. This month the company is launching its partnership with the Loan Market Association, giving those in the banking and finance sector the opportunity to use pre-automated agreements when striking a deal.
Avvoka already has experience of multiple banks involved in a dynamic contract negotiation, with 18 parties successfully collaborating on the platform.
Tune in to hear more.
