Fasken Invests in the Future of Startups with Walter

Fasken has partnered with Walter, a leading legal technology platform, in a significant move that will enhance the Canadian startup ecosystem.

The strategic partnership through the Firm’s market-leading Emerging Technology and Venture Capital group will enable Walter to automate a significant portion of the early-stage legal services delivered by Fasken to their emerging technology clients within Walter’s collaborative vertical system of record and document automation toolchain. This collaboration is set to modernise legal service delivery for Fasken startups, streamlining legal processes and ensuring unparalleled efficiency and access to legal data.

"Fasken is thrilled to collaborate with Walter in what we consider a milestone achievement in legal tech innovation," said Will Shaw, a Partner and Co-Leader of the Fasken Emerging Tech practice. "By focusing on automating early-stage legal services, we're not just simplifying these essential processes but also ensuring startups can allocate their resources more effectively, focusing on what they do best: innovating and growing their businesses. The revolution driven by AI is still in the early stages, but this is a major step by one of Canada’s largest law firms to bring AI into our core legal processes."

The collaboration between Fasken and Walter is more than a convenience; it's a strategic investment in the future of startups. This innovative approach leverages Walter's state-of-the-art technology to automate the creation and management of essential legal documents, drastically reducing the time and potential for erroring time and money. By automating foundational legal processes, the Firm’s startup clients will be better positioned to navigate their initial stages with confidence, knowing that their legal groundwork is solid, streamlined, and cost-effective.
