Contributions to Legal Tech
Alisha is not gadget-focused. Instead, she focuses on the consumer/client-perspective and builds solutions from there. That user-centered approach takes legal tech to another value creating level. As co-founder of “This is Legal Design” she helps law firms, startups and legal departments to build digital products and services that users need and want.
In her position as Head of Legal Innovation for Chevalier, she keeps improving the customer experience of employees who lost their job being represented by a digital law firm. Lastly, as chairwoman of the German Legal Tech Association Alisha pursues a vision of a modern legal market that allows all relevant stakeholders to offer desirable legal services. In order to achieve that, she fights for an innovation friendly legal framework in Germany.
