Oliver Stanley

CEO @ Kudocs

After 5 years at Bird & Bird LLP, Oliver is now a ‘recovering’ city lawyer.

After 5 years in logistics-tech (he ‘uber-ised’ man & van waste collection), he returned to his legal roots and joined Kudocs in Feb 2019.  Oliver made a viable project a commercially live product by the end of the year.  Since then, Kudocs has gone from strength to strength.

As a lawyer, he hated the time and effort to complete administrative tasks.  They got in the way of the value (and interest) of substantive work that lawyers like doing and clients (usually!) don’t mind paying for.  Oliver believes that legal tech has to be the answer to this.  Not just for cost & efficiency reasons, but because lawyers don’t want to be doing this kind of work.  Legal tech is an enhancement to their service, not a threat.
