Open Thread: Atrium lays off most of its lawyers. If you had $75M to innovate legal services delivery, what would you do?

Launched in 2017, with an initial $10 million round of funding, a year later, the company raised a whopping $65 million in a round that included some of the biggest names in venture capital, with Andreessen Horowitz leading the round and General CatalystYC Continuity Fund, and Sound Ventures as co-investors.

Unfortunately, the main casualties from Atrium’s pivot were attorneys, most of whom were laid off by the company.

Is there an ideal model for disrupting the legal relationship with tech? How do you evaluate the risk of working for new startups?
