How We Redefined our Company Values

Posted by Nicole Moriniere on Jan 20, 2020 11:57:50 AM

Lexoo is now 6 years old.

We’ve grown from an idea in our CEO’s mind, to a seed company with a team of 5–6 people, to a leading European legal tech company with a team of over 20 people at post-Series A.

With all that growth came a need to change our company values.
