Osler renews partnership with Legal Innovation Zone

Dec 8, 2020 2 MIN READ

Osler is very proud to renew its partnership with the Legal Innovation Zone (LIZ) at Ryerson University in Toronto, continuing an ongoing relationship that broke new ground in Canada when it first began in 2016. Osler’s sponsorship recognizes the firm as a founding partner of LIZ, Canada’s first legal tech incubator, and will support the innovative startups at LIZ and the leading-edge solutions LIZ companies are developing. LIZ is an internationally recognized hub where entrepreneurs, lawyers, students, tech experts, government members and industry leaders converge to drive innovation focused on improving legal service delivery.

As part of this sponsorship, Osler and LIZ will continue to work together on a number of unique initiatives including design-thinking workshops (some of which are Osler client-facing), innovation challenges and more. These initiatives have helped develop actionable solutions and products that streamline our client service delivery. Osler lawyers have also delivered workshops on various legal topics in support of LIZ startups, ranging from intellectual property to other specialized areas of law.

This partnership also reflects a broader, shared commitment to legal innovation. Innovation at Osler is about you and your business, and by rethinking and rebuilding the way we practice law, we are delivering greater value. We are committed to developing innovative products and tools to help you overcome the challenges your business faces – and this partnership is an extension of this commitment.
