How do you create a culture of digital innovation?
We believe the first step is to admit that you don’t have all the answers. The second is to look in new places to find them.
It’s why we launched Fuse in 2017. Our tech innovation space is a place where A&O lawyers, clients and start-ups come together to explore, develop and test legal, regulatory and deal-related solutions.
As the only global law firm to embed such a space at the heart of the firm, A&O is firmly at the forefront of tech innovation – and uniquely placed to help its clients exploit digital solutions in their own legal functions.
Fuse acts as a remarkable radar. It helps us stay at the forefront of technology innovation, so we can spot the game-changing solutions that address our clients’ most pressing challenges.
