The quality of applications is a clear sign that we remain attractive to the LegalTech ecosystem. I was particularly impressed by the novelty of approach of some teams. This clearly demonstrates that the legal sector remains ripe for disruptive transformation and that Fuse serves as a key focal point to uncover and support these exciting new technologies.
