As I mentioned in my post earlier today about the Clio Cloud Conference, a new feature this year was the podcast alley, where a string of podcasters were able to set up shop — LawNext among them.

Among the people I sat down with to record conversations during the conference was Jack Newton, cofounder and CEO of Clio, to talk about the conference and the company.

With Clio having recently announced a $250 million funding round — one of the largest ever for a legal technology company — there was a lot to talk about. In addition, at the conference, Newton announced the forthcoming release of his book, The Client-Centered Law Firm: How to Succeed In An Experience-Driven World, in which he lays out his blueprint for law firm success.

Newton talks about his vision for Clio to become the “operating system of law” and to help lawyers close the gap in access to justice. He also lays out his ideas for how lawyers can achieve greater success by building a client-centered law firm.

This is actually the second time LawNext interviewed Newton in as many months. In September, on the day he announced the $250 million funding, I was at Clio’s headquarters, where we spoke about the investment in more detail. I think the two interviews cover different ground and suggest you may want to listen to both.
