When Jodie Baker moved from Kansas City back to Melbourne, Australia, in 2012 to join law firm Hive Legal, she began internally developing a technology that would become matter management platform Xakia Technologies. She took Xakia out on its own in mid-2016, only to find an undeveloped local legal technology market.

“When I started Xakia in 2016, I looked around and thought there wasn’t really any ecosystem for legal technology in Australia,” Baker says. “I was actually disappointed; I felt so out on a limb.”

Just three years later, the legal technology ecosystem in Australia has exploded. For starters, the Australian Legal Technology Association (ALTA), of which Baker is deputy chair, was founded in 2017 and has created a central meeting place for both new start-ups and established companies to convene and strategize with one distinct goal: to grow Australia’s legal technology provider community.
