Ruby Datum Announced As Participant For Slaughter And May’s Collaborate Programme

Ruby Datum is delighted to announce today that we have been included in the Slaughter and May Collaborate Incubator Programme. We are one of four Legal Technology providers that made it.

This gives us a chance to take part in a pilot with Slaughter and May. The four businesses, selected by the Collaborate team, with input from the firm’s Client Innovation and Collaborate Advisory Networks were chosen from a diverse pool of technology solutions.

Ruby Datum’s platform will be used to address Slaughter and May’s challenge around managing multiple Requests for Information from regulators.

In addition to the opportunity to undertake a pilot of their product, cohort members will also receive guidance, advice and mentoring from the firm’s Knowledge and Innovation Team and practice groups. The cohort will also have the option to pitch to Slaughter and May partners for equity investment, via the Slaughter and May Ventures platform, the firm added.

Chris McGaffin, Collaborate Sponsoring Partner, said: “Yet again, the quality of applications received for the programme this year was fantastic. It was a tough choice, but these four legal tech companies offer something unique and valuable for our people. We are really looking forward to working with the cohort to test their products in response to the challenges put forward.”

Nick Watson, CEO of Ruby Datum, said “We have always said 2022 will be an exciting year of collaboration for us, and what better way to move forward with this intent than through Slaughter and May’s prestigious Collaborate programme. The team at Ruby Datum could not be more excited about the problem statement presented to us, and ideas are already flowing with what can be achieved. Initial conversations with the Collaborate team have us incredibly excited with what can be achieved. Collaboration benefits everyone.”
