About

The majority of people who face a legal problem around the world don’t get legal assistance. And, for those who do, most are dissatisfied with the service they get.

Josef was created to solve that problem, founded by three young lawyers and developers who believe that the law needs to work for everyone.

Today, the best legal teams around the world use Josef, from global commercial firms, to in-house teams at multinational corporations, to leading boutique and NewLaw firms, to the world’s best universities and law schools.

Josef is a no-code software platform that empowers lawyers and legal professionals to automate legal tasks, including lawyer-client interactions, sending emails, generating legal documents and providing legal guidance and advice. 

Through Josef, these teams are saving time, scaling their services, helping more people and delighting staff and clients – all while making legal services more accessible.
