Take a look at this list of legal startups on Angel List – 414 and counting. I am happy to count many of these companies as #ReInventLaw Speakers / Attendees. While many of these companies may not succeed in the long run – these companies tend to cluster around certain ideas. It is my belief that many of those ideas will ultimately prevail. For more thoughts check out Bob Ambrogi’s post “A Time of Unprecedented Innovation in Legal Technology.” I agree with most of his thoughts on the matter.
