Our Executive Team
Chad Burton, CEO
Chad is a former litigator who developed one of the nation’s first “new model” law firms, leveraging cloud-based technology and modern business practices to develop a lean virtual law firm. Chad has an unhealthy obsession with experimenting with the latest legal and productivity technologies. If there’s a possibility it can be leveraged to better practice and serve clients, chances are he’s tested it out and annoyed the rest of the team about it.
Chad serves on ABA Law Practice Division’s Council and as Chair of the Division’s Futures Initiative. He also serves on the Governing Board for ABA’s Center for Innovation. He regularly speaks around the country on topics related to legal technology, virtual law practice and the future of the legal profession.
Chad has been quoted and published in publications like the ABA Journal, Inc., the Atlantic, and Entrepreneur Magazine. Chad was named to the Fastcase 50 list of global legal innovators in 2014 and received an award by ALM for the Most Innovative Use of Technology for Firm in 2012.

She loves working with clients to design and build technology that makes lawyers more efficient, makes the law more accessible, or otherwise moves the legal profession forward. Nicole is particularly interested in how to use good design to create better products and experiences for both lawyers and consumers.
Nicole regularly writes and speaks about the changing legal marketplace, the evolution of the law firm business model, and the technology that allows attorneys to do their work better, faster, and cheaper. She has been published or quoted in major national publications, including the ABA Journal, the Huffington Post, the Atlantic, Venture Beat, and more.

He also works alongside clients to take a pragmatic look at improving their legal technology and operations using his own experience constantly refining a law practice.
