Who is Josef?

The law doesn’t work. (Well, it doesn’t work for everyone.) Globally, more than 5 billion people don’t have access to legal services.

Why does this matter?

If people don’t get access to the legal help they need, they face worse outcomes in life, whether they’re negotiating with their landlord, disputing a public transport fine, or doing their tax.

At Josef, this is the problem we spend every day trying to fix. We do this through our beautifully designed no-code automation platform, empowering lawyers to transform the way they work.

Our customers include some of the biggest law firms in the world, small suburban firms, in-house lawyers at multinational corporations, and legal aid and community organisations.
