The Hong Kong-based start up will give support to in-house legal teams faced with pressure to reduce costs by providing experts at short notice without additional permanent employee costs.
The flexible lawyer strategy Cognatio aims to employ is a similar service to that of GPS Legal, a boutique launched in November by three senior lawyers from Baker Botts and Addleshaw Goddard, also in Hong Kong.
