Blakes Nitro has joined forces with leading-edge legal tech start-up Founded to create a customized, collaborative online legal services platform for early-stage companies.


As of today, Nitro is working with Founded on creating “Founded for Nitro” – a digital platform for completing corporate legal services, initially aimed at clients in the Blakes Nitro program.


“This partnership allows us to combine our Firm’s legal expertise with Founded’s technical expertise – with the end result being a smarter, more efficient solution for our Nitro clients,” said Carla Swansburg, Chief Innovation Officer at Blakes.


Through using Founded’s technology, Blakes lawyers and Nitro clients will be able to collaborate through the on-line platform for specific legal tasks from generating incorporation documents to building automated “smart contracts” and managing work flow all on one central platform.


This dedicated portal will allow Nitro clients and Blakes lawyers to access certain corporate records, legal documents and contracts in one place – as well as offering an automated “legal health check” function that allows companies to identify missing documents or potential issues in their corporate structure.


“Our platform offers an interactive and accessible way to directly engage with clients,” said Shane Murphy, co-founder of Founded. “The key to our platform is that it works for both lawyer and client: allowing an accessible, customizable portal that saves time for both, without compromising on the exceptional level of service provided.”

Founded for Nitro is due to launch for Nitro clients in late summer, starting with early-stage corporate services documentation.
