S02E02: Legal tech & NewLaw real talk
Peter Aprile and Natalie Worsfold interview Derek Hopfner, co-founder of Law Scout. Derek, along with his friends, Shane Murphy and Travis Houlette, started Law Scout after a (less than inspiring) BigLaw experience. Law Scout has developed an online workroom where small businesses can easily hire pre-vetted lawyers and obtain high-quality legal work for a fixed-fee. It seeks to remove the friction and cost uncertainty inherent in traditional law firm engagements. Peter, Natalie and Derek discuss Law Scout, its platform, attracting clients, lawyers, and the challenges of building a legal technology company. The parties also have a heartfelt conversation about finding personal and professional fulfillment in building new stuff. As the kids say, “ish gets real”.
