Co-founder of Legalese.com
Recovering lawyer, amateur UI & UX designer, self-taught programmer
Legalese is a deep tech startup in the legaltech space that wants to apply computer science to law. It aims to do that by first developing a domain-specific language for computational law.
As co-founder of Legalese, Alexis's job description is, frankly, very vague. Anything that's not done but ought to have been, is her job. As the recovering lawyer, she spends her days exorcising legal demons and unlearning her bad habits by sharing her understanding of the end-users, industry, and established conventions and practices (i.e. horror stories) with the engineering and product teams.
In her previous life, she first got lulled by the giant payout of being a corporate lawyer before moving onto a 'Big 4' experience with Rajah & Tann where she continued her training and later practised as an IP, IT, and commercial litigator. Fortunately, none of the profession's razzle-dazzle was enough to disabuse her of her mounting suspicions that the legal profession has neither the tools, math, nor systems needed to solve its problems. Long story short, she met her computer scientist co-founder, Meng, and they decided to take on that domain together.
Alexis is a proud alumna of Victoria JC and later obtained her LL.B at Queen Mary, University of London (though she readily admits to spending most of her time juggling part-time jobs).
Alexis enjoys long walks (preferably in vibrams), bad coffee, and spends her "free" time on Waitbutwhy, reddit, and computer games. She thinks everyone should read science fiction. She's particularly fond of Ursula K Le Guin, Issac Asimov, and Iain M. Banks. Her all-time favourite book is Neal Stephenson's Diamond Age.
When she grows up, she'd rather like to be Tina Fey.
