Agreements Network Marries Legal Contracts with Blockchain (via Ledger Insights)

“Monax announced that eleven organizations are partnering with the Agreements Network (AN) which turns ‘legal processes into products’. The network enables people to create legally compliant agreements from templates with a few clicks.

The project deserves attention because of the involvement of Monax which is known for contributing the code to Hyperledger Burrow.

The AN announced it’s working with law firms BakerHostetler, LegalBono and ErdosIP. Additionally, tech firm partners include Clause, Crowdcube, LexPredict, Libra, Mattereum, Monax, Rymedi, TransparentNode and Wolfram Blockchain Labs.”

Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 8.43.57 AMWe offer some initial conversation of the application of Blockchain to legal services in our deck called Fin(Legal)Tech.  Obvious starting points for the blockchain in law include – real estate transactions, smart contracting, asset verification and the enforcement of judgements,  financial services regulatory work (such as we have discussed in our paper on resolution planning), etc.  These ideas (together with other related and important technological developments) extend to large segments of transactional / regulatory  legal space.  The goal is to reduce needless friction – which is endemic to most processes ( and legal centered processes are particularly bad).
