Marjan Hermkes

Co-Founder, L-IME

The Netherlands


Marjan is the co-founder of L-IME. L-IME is an independent legal tech consultancy company that is focused on advising, guiding and assisting law firms to thrive in an ever-changing playing field driven by the digital transformation of our society.

As a business consultant, business change, and project manager Marjan has successfully delivered several large-scale IT projects for renowned national and international law firms. Her leadership skills, strong didactics, and over 18 years of hands-on experience are valued by many law firms, corporate legal departments, and business partners in the legal industry. Marjan is a true entrepreneur and legal tech enthusiast focussing on the human side of change.

Contribution to Legal Tech

After years of consulting and being in various leadership positions for legal IT software vendors Marjan decided to break away from the vendor arena, to launch L-IME and to team up with law firms as their go-to advisor. By sharing her in-depth knowledge of legal tech and its industry Marjan contributes to the increasing awareness of the opportunities that arise when stakeholders dare to think outside the box and start collaborating on innovative solutions for the challenges ahead. In that very position Marjan is ELTA Ambassador for the Netherlands. A group of handpicked well-connected legal tech pioneers from all over Europe and beyond, who volunteer to act as “swinging doors” between their country or region and the international level of ELTA (the European Legal Technology Association).

With L-IME Marjan not only launched the Legaltech Academy providing law firms and law students training on legal tech solutions and concepts enabling lawyers and students to get a better understanding and grip on legal tech developments, but Marjan also developed the Legaltech-Radar: a free and easy to use platform that helps law firms to find and compare legal tech and legal IT solutions based on the features they are looking for. The Legaltech-Radar goes beyond a mere legal tech map including the option to actually receive a comparison summary by mail at no costs. Currently the Legaltech-Radar is available for the Dutch market: IT-Kieswijzer and the Spanish market, managed by Instituto Innovación Legal:  Comparador Legaltech and is expanding to other countries or regions.
