Sometimes, algorithms work better when they’re combined with a human touch. That is the idea behind Priori Legal, a “curated marketplace” that strives to connect business owners with vetted lawyers at transparent prices. Founded by two Yale Law graduates, Priori screens every lawyer it admits to its roster and requires the lawyers to maintain a 95 percent client-approval rating.

“They’re not a pure technology play, and that’s good,” says one lawyer on Priori’s roster. “While the practice of law is being disrupted across the board, there are still many things that require human intervention.”
