As the legal industry’s reliance on technology grows, so does its vulnerability to security attacks. Accordingly, the pressure on legal departments to institute and maintain reliable security processes is also rising.
In her role Sacha draws on over 15 years experience in marketing, brand strategy, innovation and professional consulting experience in Australia and the UK. Lawcadia is a legal technology company with a web-based platform in-house legal teams and their law firms can use to manage projects, matters and spend. We had a great chat about how the business was started, how they have been able to grow internationally, and what the future holds. As a fast growing legal technology company who has made real inroads both in Australia and internationally I was inspired to hear how they backed themselves and have achieved great success.
Warwick is passionate about the lean start up philosophy and we talk in depth about the process of ideation, preparing for entrepreneurship and the multi-faceted skills needed to be a CEO and founder, which differs enormously from what was requires as a corporate lawyer. He shares his insights on building his business, the future of legal careers, mentoring and leadership, and how he applies the principles of Build Measure Learn to all their strategy and products. Unusually his co-founder is also his wife who has a blue chip marketing background and he shares his insights on what it works so well for them and why some investors like it.
Warwick ended a longterm Legal career to pursue a gap in the market that he found during his tenure at a large Legal firm.
This is an inspirational story of a founder that backed himself to be a success in a software startup without any experience in that field whatsoever.
