The company said Create+65 will be part of its Innovation and Best Delivery Hub for Asia Pacific and play a vital role in its global innovation programme, Clifford Chance Create.
Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board and in collaboration with Future Law Innovation Program by Singapore Academy of Law, Create+65 will bring together venture capitalists, startups, product owners and developers, universities and private institutions to share knowledge and develop new legal services tools and solutions.
“In line with Singapore’s aspiration to be at the forefront of technology and innovation in the legal sector, Create+65 builds on our ongoing commitment to contribute to an ecosystem of collaboration and innovation as we anticipate the increasing pace of change,” said Clifford Chance’s Singapore managing partner Kai Schneider.
The law firm’s investments in innovation and legal technology include a contract automation tool for clients, CCDs@ft; an online MiFID2 client regulation toolkit powered through Neota Logic; and a cloud-based transaction management solution delivered through Workshare.
It announced an investment in legal technology startup Reynen Court last week.
