Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe‘s partners aren’t strangers to investing in startups. The San Francisco-founded firm has a fund that has invested in tech ventures for roughly three decades.

The firm is now planning to go further by investing specifically in legal technology startups, as part of a multipronged effort to keep on the cutting edge of changes to its own industry. The firm last year launched an internal software development team, Orrick Labs, that is designing its own tech solutions for the firm.

Orrick announced on Thursday that it plans to invest up to $250,000 in legal tech startups that are receiving bigger rounds of funding from major venture capital firms. The firm anticipates making about two such investments a year that will also allow the firm’s lawyers to beta test promising new software.
