It’s been a busy few weeks for the team at Analytics Engines.

We were recently recognised as one of UK’s leading scaleups after being selected to join the Tech Nation Applied AI 3.0 programme. Following our appointment to the programme, we were delighted to attend the launch event in London in late September.

On Wednesday 29th September, Analytics Engines CTO, Alastair McKinley was pleased to join Glenn Watterson, Partner and Corporate Lawyer at Mills Selig, on stage at Digital DNA 2021. The session, titled “Data Trailblazers” was facilitated by Conor Houston, Houston Solutions, and explored how data is redefining the legal sector. A recording of the session can be found here.

Data-driven thinking is fast becoming a critical aspect of the legal sector. The lawtech market is expected to grow to a value of £22 billion by 2026 in the U.K. alone. The report goes on to highlight that “UK lawtech start-ups and scaleups are growing at a rate of 101%, outpacing fintech, climate tech and healthtech”.
