OpenLaw has announced that its platform will be made available on the legal tech app platform Reynen Court, which enables law firms to deploy pre-vetted, security-tested applications quickly within their own technology environments, either on-premise or in the cloud.

Using OpenLaw, anyone can more efficiently engage in commercial transactions through cutting edge legal automation tooling, all while leveraging next-generation blockchain-based smart contracts. For background, smart contracts can be thought of as prescriptive scripts that can facilitate and execute commercial agreements between parties, for example an escrow script. OpenLaw brings the human-readable contract form that wraps these prescriptive scripts, or smart contacts.

“We chose to work with Reynen Court to help bring the bleeding edge of technology to law firms and give lawyers the ability to play with this emerging technology,” explains Aaron Wright, CEO of OpenLaw, “We’ve heard a lot of discussion around blockchain technology, OpenLaw is a tool to facilitate the use of technology while elevating the role of legal automation in conducting legal work.”

Reynen Court has assembled a team of experts in enterprise software, cybersecurity, and cloud-native computing technologies. Reynen Court has launched a beta version of its legal app platform for a select list of its backers, which currently include 19 major firms, to be followed later by a public launch. OpenLaw is now available to the team.

One Reynen Court member firm, Latham and Watkins, recently used OpenLaw’s legal automation tool to generate Convertible Notes. For more information on this, please refer here: https://www.lw.com/news/consensys-latham-announce-convertible-note-generator-for-startups-powered-by-openlaw.

“We are excited to welcome OpenLaw as a featured product on our platform. Smart contracts are changing the very nature and scope of the work lawyers do, and ConsenSys clearly is leading innovation in this important new arena,“ said Reynen Court Founder and CEO Andrew Klein.
