This Sunday we went to my parents in law. They have a small place where they grow their own vegetables – a lovely place close to city for solitude, rest and doing magic with the nature. In distance we heard someone shouting for help and I walked over there to find an elderly man – maybe in his eighties – who had stumbled and fallen down into a deep ditch. He was a bit dizzy as he hit his head when falling and after getting him back on his feet I offered to fetch my car and drive him home. After walking a couple of hundred meters, I turned and saw him coming after me so I stopped and we made company on the way to his home instead.
He told me that he had started to work with Windows 1.0 in 1986 and concluded that many jobs and tasks had disappeared since then. He asked me what I was doing and I told him that I was a business lawyer, but now had turned into introducing a software on the Scandinavian market that can read and understand the contents of agreements. I also told him that, unfortunately, most of my fellow legal colleagues did not really grasp what I am trying to sell to them.
He looked at me and said with a very clear and crisp voice and with all dizziness long gone: “Give them a year or so – then they will all understand”.
We, Contract Business Intelligence, are distributing software from Seal Software on the Scandinavian market and we are about to change they way we will review contracts in the future. Or actually – already now. Legal Tech is coming to town.
