4. Lessons for Law Firms from LegalZoom's IPO

BY

Steve Glaveski

LegalZoom - the world’s preeminent legaltech company, went public on 30 June 2021. Its share price closed 35% higher at day’s end than its opening price, effectively valuing the company at US$7.35 billion.

The company was founded back in 2001, and helps customers create legal documents without having to hire a lawyer. This extends to wills, trusts, business formation, copyright registrations, and trademark applications.

The listing is a shining example of the power of applying automated tech solutions to old problems - problems that were previously handled by human lawyers.

I unpack key lessons from their success in this episode.
