Aiming to attract a broader mix of clients, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati on Tuesday became one of the first Am Law 100 firms to formally launch a software development business.

The Silicon Valley-based firm has launched a subsidiary called SixFifty, named after the firm’s address and area code in Palo Alto. Its first automated legal product, launching this spring, will draft documents for compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act, which takes effect in January 2020.

Beyond that, SixFifty is building out a legal services automation platform that will ultimately provide services for both companies and consumers, said Douglas Clark, Wilson Sonsini’s managing partner. SixFifty, like most automated legal services, will not provide legal advice.
