Clifford Chance, has launched a new innovation lab in Singapore, named Create+65, to identify, incubate, test and pilot new legal technology solutions.
Create+65 was designed to bring together venture capitalists, start-ups, product owners and developers, universities and private institutions with the goal of developing and testing new legal services tools and solutions.
Subject to their position in the innovation cycle, participants that join Create+65 would have access to insights from the firm and its clients about technology solutions that target the delivery of legal services as well as feedback and mentoring, data sets and connection to potential investment and/or funding vehicles.
Users would also have access to workspaces and gain the ability to partner with Clifford Chance to develop innovative legal technology solutions.
The firm has shown a drive to lead in tech this year. In April, it launched ‘Clifford Chance’s Tech Academy’, a global training programme dedicated to learning and development in the tech space. Meanwhile, in December, along with Latham & Watkins, the firm invested in Reynen Court, a tech venture sometimes called the app Store for legal tech. T
he latest initiative is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and in collaboration with Future Law Innovation Programme (FLIP) by the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL).
