Connecting leading corporations with startups to share knowledge and strategic thinking

Get in touch

It's unclear how any industry will look in 5, 10, 15 years. What is clear is that it will not look like it does now.


How it works

In collaboration with CodeBase, we have developed a new programme, Bridge, that brings together some of Europe’s leading corporations and most promising start-ups.

Within Bridge, we’ve already launched LawTech, a ten month long intensive learning programme. This programme allows some of UK’s biggest law firms to share experiences and connect and learn both with peers and start-ups working in the industry.

Each of the ten modules is designed to expose the law firms and the LawTech start-ups to core strategic thinking and best practices and will cover relevant topics that ensure a valuable exchange about innovation.

More about CodeBase


"I think there is no better way for someone to accelerate the pace at which they’re going to be able to change. [The LawTech Programme] is central to the strategy of Ashurst Digital Ventures, We believe that engagement within the ecosystem overall is critical and are hoping to place ourselves as the centre through strategic collaborations. No other forum brings together practicing lawyers, innovation specialists, new entrants and tech experts.”

“As I said to your colleagues and the room in fact on the day, this is ground-breaking. The mere fact conversations are taking place is such a leap forward. Tara is coming to spend some time at our offices which is amazing.”
