What better time to celebrate women in tech, specifically LegalTech, than on International Women’s Day!
On International Women's Day this year, we sat down with legal tech professionals from DLA Piper Sweden, Delphi and Allen & Overy, who shared their legal tech experiences, provided insights on how the industry is evolving and gave practical advice on how to best utilise legal tech.

Jess heads up our Customer Success team and is our customers' first point of contact. She ensures our customers are able to take full advantage of Definely’s suite of solutions and collaborates with the product team to incorporate feedback into our products.
Jess started her career as an SDR, having to build relationships from scratch and prove the value of the solutions she was selling. She enjoyed building rapport and knew she wanted to further this, so she enquired about what made a great CSM, applied for a role at the same company and has never looked back! Now, we're lucky enough to have her lead the Definely CS team!
