Fuse empowers A&O to rethink. Working with LegalTech companies, we rethink how we do our work. The FinTechs nominated by our clients allow us to rethink what expertise we need to gain. With our fifth cohort, I hope to connect our lawyers and clients seamlessly with the best tools on the market - providing opportunities for us to learn, innovate and deepen our relationships across the ecosystem.
