Legal Technologist

As a legal technologist, you are the driving force behind our digitalisation strategy and keep us up to par with technological innovations.


As part of our Legal Tech team, you will work in a dynamic, innovative and international environment, at the interface between the law and new technology.

Legal technology is an elementary part of our Freshfields Hub. As a legal technologist, you will shape our digitalization strategy and develop technology-based solutions to make legal advice even more efficient. To do so, you will work very closely with the lawyers in our law firm.

For example, you will deal with the automation of complex templates and the ongoing further development of our document automation solution, whilst also taking integration with other systems into account. You monitor and coordinate projects in close cooperation with our senior manager and are available in-house as a consultant for our own teams.
