LegalTech Trailblazer Aaron Baer Joins Kaitongo’s Advisory Board
Partner at 29 and Founder of 4L Academy, Aaron Baer intends to lead the way for the next generation of lawyers by joining Kaitongo
We are very pleased to share the appointment of Aaron Baer to the Advisory Board of Kaitongo Inc. As a gifted legal practitioner, Aaron is known for finding pragmatic solutions to complex business and legal problems. Aaron brings to Kaitongo more than just a proven track record of being an exceptional lawyer. His passion for mentoring and guiding the next generation of lawyers through the adoption of smart technology is how he has made—and will continue to make—a difference in the legal profession. As the founder of 4L Academy, Aaron is re-imagining what training for lawyers and law students can look like and is making LegalTech a big part of that training. On June 1, Aaron joined Renno & Co, a leading boutique law firm focusing on tech and emerging tech companies. Renno & Co provides legal services in a modern, innovative way and has fully embraced the power of LegalTech.
“Aaron Baer has not only created an outstanding blueprint for a legal career at such a remarkable speed, but he is also re-inventing the shape, scope, dimension, and trajectory of the new legal career through the inclusion and benefits of technology,” said Sumathi Pundit, Founder & CEO at Kaitongo. “He is leading by example, showing lawyers at all levels of expertise how to build—and maintain—business relationships by keeping their client at the heart of their work. We’ve seen his impact at Aird & Berlis, where he became a Partner at the age of 29 and played a leading role in the firm’s adoption of legal technology! We trust that Aaron will greatly help—and guide—Kaitongo in becoming a great success within the LegalTech landscape.”
“The world has changed so much in the past year, and yet so much of how lawyers try to attract and retain clients remains the same. By becoming thought leaders, lawyers can unlock enormous business opportunities and truly differentiate their legal brand. Yet too often, it’s hard to know what to talk about, when to reach out, or how to determine which channels would make the most sense for such efforts. And most of us are far too busy, and we can really use the help to make sure that we’re staying on top of key issues for our clients and also staying top of mind. Kaitongo is an amazing tool for the lawyer that’s looking to build (and expand) their book of business in a modern, cost efficient, and impactful manner,” said Aaron.
By way of background, Aaron is no stranger to the Canadian LegalTech landscape. In 2018, Aaron was seconded to Diligen, a leading AI contract review company and has served on the Technology Advisory Committee at Aird & Berlis LLP. For the past four years, Aaron has been driving innovation efforts at Aird & Berlis, through the firm’s adoption of artificial intelligence, legal project management, and data analytics tools designed to revolutionize the practice of law.
