Job description

Our mission is to reduce from months to minutes the time it takes for law firms and legal departments to source, test, buy and deploy modern legal technology applications.

The Amsterdam based company is supported by a consortium of twenty leading global law firms. More than 200 third-party application vendors are actively engaged with Reynen Court, with more than a hundred already under contract and currently present or working towards participation in the company's Solution Store.
