It’s a wrap! Josef’s 2021 highlights

It's been fun, 2021

For many of us, 2021 has been another challenging year filled with uncertainty.

At Josef, as the world has continued to grapple with the pandemic, our resolve to make legal services more accessible has only grown.

We’re more proud than ever of our mission, transforming the way legal services are delivered through our no-code automation workbench.

Our CEO Tom Dreyfus says, “This has been another year full of challenges and opportunities! We’ve scaled our team, our impact and our product, working with the best law firms and legal teams in the world.  Through it all, the team at Josef has shown remarkable resilience.”

Sam Flynn, our COO, says, “What a year! Though 2021 was another tough one for a lot of people, it was yet again a huge year for legaltech, legal automation and access to justice.

At Josef, that looked like 1000s of builders launching 1000s of bots to help more than 100,000 people resolve their legal problems.

We’re so proud of our team, our customers, our partners and our community for continuing to transform the way legal services are delivered, even in the face of all of the challenges 2021 has thrown at us. We look forward to seeing what 2022 will bring!”

To celebrate the year that was, and to get ready for the year ahead, we’ve collected the news articles, blogs and case studies that we especially loved in 2021.
