PwC and tech giant Microsoft is aiming to improve and integrate their new legal and tax tech accelerator program in Spanish companies with unique and localized needs. The Tax & Legal Tech Springboard in PwC is its second program that assists legal-focused companies in their growth. Its program, which is based in London, began its operations last May. The inclusion of legal and tax-related technologies primarily focuses on the Spanish and Latin American markets.
This program also includes Big Four, KPMG, EY, and Deloitte that have rapidly been bolstering their legal divisions' reach. Along with several UK-based law firms, the Big Four is often in front as the firm builds relationships with small-but-promising legal tech companies to grow their innovation-forward appeal to its existing and robust corporate clients.
The Springboard program is designed to mentor legal startups and other budding company executives. It is aimed at the Spanish market exclusively. Many companies, along with PwC and Microsoft, have developed legal tech incubators and accelerators. Companies such as Allen &Overy, Slaughter and May, Clifford Chance, and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich &Rosati have homegrown tech arms that market legal tools to their clients.
