On July 18, 2023, the top legal officers of three Boston-area technology companies came together for a live panel discussion about the city’s unique contributions to the legal tech landscape, which I moderated The panelists graciously agreed to allow LawNext to record the conversation, and this episode is that recording. The three panelists are:

  • Margaret K. Minister, general counsel for Evisort, an AI-driven contract lifecycle management company that was founded out of Harvard Law School and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

  • William “Mo” Cowan, chief legal and external affairs officer at Devoted Health, a tech-enabled all-in-one healthcare company founded to dramatically improve overall health and well-being for seniors by caring for them like family. Cowan is a former interim U.S. senator from Massachusetts.

  • Matt Rowe, chief legal officer at Parallel Wireless and former general counsel to Shoobx, the equity management platform acquired by Fidelity in January 2023.

The panel took place as part of the inaugural meeting of LegalTech Boston, a group formed to bring together the community of those involved in legal tech in the area. The event was hosted by the law firm Gunderson Dettmer and sponsored by the professional training company SkillBurst Interactive.

Big thanks to Joe Green, chief innovation officer at Gunderson Dettmer, and Anusia Gillespie, chief strategy and growth officer at SkillBurst Interactive, for being the driving forces behind organizing this event.
