We’re nominated for FT Innovative Lawyers Awards!

Wow, we launched Legal Geek by accident when Jimmy Vestbirk was looking for a new business opportunity and his market research has turned into the largest legal startup community in the world, with over 5,000 active members. We are so pleased to be acknowledged in the Financial Times Lawyers Awards. Jimmy Vestbirk says:

The Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Awards are one of the most respected awards in the industry and it is a huge honour to be part of this event. Thank you to everyone who nominated us! The Legal Geek Community has grown from nothing to an incredibly strong and active community, but there have been moments of doubt, and definitely blood, sweat and tears! Being acknowledged for this award makes it all feel worthwhile; from the bottom of my heart I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has shared on our journey so far. High fives.
