Lilian Breidenbach

Co-Founder, LegalOS



Lilian is the co-founder and managing director of Legal OS. She studied anthropology, mathematics and computer science at Reed college. Before founding Legal OS she worked at the female health startup Clue and the accelerator Axel Springer Plug and Play. 

Contribution to Legal Tech

When Lilian began exploring the Legal tech scene in 2017, she saw a startling flaw with the incumbent offerings. Those products that addressed the pain points of contracts continued to treat contracts as plain text. In 2018 she founded Legal OS. Her startup’s vision is bold but simple: enable lawyers to write digital contracts that are innately machine readable. Subsequently, Lilian has become a thought leader in the field of digital contracts, publishing articles in Rethinking Law and other legal tech publications, and becoming a regular speaker at the Berlin Legal Tech conference.
