In 2018, Mark Britton left Avvo, the often-controversial company he founded in 2006 and led as CEO until he sold it earlier that year to web behemoth Internet Brands. Soon after, he joined us here on LawNext Episode 11 for an insightful conversation about why he started the company, why he sold it, and why he left. 

At the recent Clio Cloud Conference in San Diego, I had the opportunity to again sit down with Britton to record a live special edition of LawNext. Britton was attending the conference following Clio’s announcement in September that he had joined its board of directors and become an investor. 

In this interview, Britton explains why he decided to become involved with Clio, how he sees its mission as similar to Avvo’s, and what he believes its future will hold.
