The Legal Technology Resource Center’s Women of Legal Tech initiative is intended to encourage diversity and celebrate women in legal technology. This initiative launched in 2015 with a list of innovators and leaders in legal technology and with this year’s additions, that list now includes 132 talented and influential women leaders. Every Monday and Wednesday, we will be featuring a woman from our class of 2021. Today we have Lucy Bassli!
Lucy Bassli is the Founder and Principal at InnoLaw Group, PLLC, Law Department Management Consultant at NextLaw In-House Solutions, and Legal Strategy Advisor at LawGeex.
