Our legal tech trainees are responsible for using technological tools and guiding our personnel in legal technology related matters with the team’s other trainees.

In our legal tech team, you will participate in document automation projects, which consist of planning and implementing automation work in cooperation with our lawyers, as well as using artificial intelligence software in our transaction assignments.
