What is the mission?
Robin is an AI copilot for legal contracting work. Their product helps teams get legal contracts drafted and negotiated at a fraction of the usual speed and cost, using the latest AI models that have been fine-tuned on a proprietary database of millions of legal contracts and with supervision from a ‘lawyer-in-the-loop’.
Who are the founders?
Richard Robinson, a former lawyer at Clifford Chance, grew frustrated by the repetitive legal work that distracted from more strategic tasks and started Robin tackle this. James Clough is a former machine learning research scientist at KCL and Imperial College, where his specialism was using AI on small datasets for highly sensitive, complex automation – similar to the technical challenges at Robin.
Why did Carina get involved?
Legal work is a costly and time-consuming part of every business. I am interested in the potential of newly capable AI systems to shoulder the burden of repetitive work, and free people and society to focus on high impact, important missions. Access to expensive legal expertise also represents an important part of the opportunity gap in society. With Robin, this can change.
